When a Cure for Migraine Becomes the Cause of Birth Defects

I experience mild to severe migraines from time to time and I have to say that I always hate having one. The throbbing pain that often starts on my nape and goes to the top of my head and near my eyes made me just want to lie down in bed with no lights on. I’ll be ok once I have massaged the area with a Chinese herbal ointment or a pain reliever.

For those people esp. pregnant women that have been prescribed by Topamax to relieve their migraines, it is sad to say that this drug has been found out to cause cleft lip and palate to the babies. As a result, a Topamax birth defect lawsuits have been filed by women when they found out that the birth defect of their babies where caused by this drug.
