I always get very disapointed when I hear about drugs that were meant to help us with our health actually causing damage instead. It is even worse when the effect is seen in our children. A drug used to treat epilepsy and migrain headaches called Topamax has been linked to birth defects in children born to mothers that took the drug. The birth defect is a cleft pallet or cleft lip that don't properly fuse together during development in the womb. This has become such an issue that it has garnered the interest of a group of lawyers that are working on a Topamax lawsuit to get compensation for people whom have had their lives disrupted by the carelessness of the drug companies.
