Pregnancy and Migraine

I have some few friends that are pregnant right now and there’s no doubt that they are so happy and thrilled to be in that state. Though there are times that they don’t feel really well most especially in their 1st trimester, their pregnancy is something that they have planned and prayed.

Certainly, they’ve been frequently visiting their doctors for their check up to ensure both their safety. I’ve been reading on some blogs and sites that if you’re pregnant and have migraine, you should never drink Topamax drug. Why? A recent studies shows that it can cause birth defects to your baby. I’m sure you don’t want to your baby to have a cleft lip and palate deformities caused by this drug.

Topamax Birth Defects

I was saddened to know that medicines that are used to cure migraines can pose danger to baby’s health. Pregnant mothers that were given Topamax to cure their migraine was not aware that it can cause birth defects to their babies such as these: cleft lip and palate deformities.

Fortunately, in 2008 after some studies and tests, these Topamax drugs are banned and the manufacturer is sued. Mother’s that became victim of this drug should know that they can file for a Topamax birth defect lawsuit at their attorney’s office to help them with the legal proceedings. If the defect is found to be caused by Topamax, you can receive compensation over this injury

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.

We all know that pregnant women should never take medicines without the supervision of their doctors but just in case you took or were given Topamax for your migraine then chances are you’ll experience some side effects. The worst part is that, your baby might have birth defects.

This result to the filing of Topamax lawsuit by women who found out their babies got birth defects. Anyone is encourage to consult and file law suit if they’ve become a victim of this drug.
