FDA WARNING: Depakote use during pregnancy linked to birth defects
The FDA notified healthcare professionals and patients about the increased risk of neural tube defects and other major birth defects in babies exposed to Depakote® during pregnancy. However, this news came too late for many mothers. The drug has been on the market since 1983 and it wasn’t until 2006 that the FDA added a black-box warning over the potential birth defects.
Don’t delay, start your claim and find help now.
If your child was born with a birth defect after you used Depakote while pregnant, you may qualify for compensation.
Some birth defects linked to the use of Depakote® during pregnancy are Spina Bifida, Nueral Tube Defects, Craniofacial Defects, and Cardiovascular Malformations. In 2012, Abbott Laboratories agreed a $1.6 billion settlement in a Depakote lawsuit alleging the company illegally marketed its drug for off-label use.
