Topamax® Birth Defect Attorneys
Topamax® and other anticonvulsant drugs, also known as anti-seizure or anti-epileptic (AED) medications have also been linked to birth defects in babies born to mothers using these anticonvulsant drugs during pregnancy. Although these drugs are most often prescribed to treat patients with epilepsy or another seizure related disorder, they are also commonly prescribed to prevent migraines and as a mood stabilizer to treat patients with bipolar disorders. Other times these anticonvulsant drugs are prescribed by doctors for off-label uses to treat patients suffering from anxiety disorders, smoking addiction, OCD, bulimia, alcoholism or even as a weight loss drug.
