Topamax Birth Defects
Topamax Birth Defects are devastating and widespread. The FDA has issued warnings to help prevent the use of Topamax by pregnant women, but not all women have been properly informed of the dangers involved until after their child is born unhealthy. The use of Topamax has left many women devastated seeing their child born with birth defects including:
- Cleft Lip
- Cleft Palate
The FDA has listed Topamax as a Category D medication, but the information comes long after many women had already taken enough Topamax to scar their child for life. Johnson and Johnson, Topamax manufacturers, took a huge blow from mothers everywhere after failing to study their own medication enough to warn their users of its potential dangers. Johnson and Johnson has since updated their warning labels to inform pregnant women of its dangerous propensity.
