Dangerous Prescription Drugs: Topamax

Did Topamax Result In Your Child's Birth Injury?

The experienced trial lawyers at Leigh Law Firm in The Woodlands, Texas, are reviewing potential Topamax claims involving women who took the controversial drug during the first trimester of pregnancy.

Topamax and various generic versions called topiramate were approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1997 to treat migraines and epilepsy, and it is one of the best-selling prescription drugs in the U.S. However, the drug has been linked to serious birth injuries when taken by women early in pregnancy. Women have reported giving birth to babies with cleft lips and/or palates, genital defects, and fetal and skeletal deformities.

In 2011, the FDA reclassified Topamax and topiramate versions to a pregnancy category D drug, but prior to this, the medication was listed as a category C drug. The D category is for drugs that present a risk to unborn babies, as proven by evidence in humans.
