I’ve never been one to suffer from headaches but last August in the middle of some ‘streuous’ activity I heard this pop in my head, I curled over and I had a headache that lasted for over a month. An intense headache. It was awful but at least I did not take the headache drug Topamax. Apparently it has some awful side effects… topamax and pregnancy,topamax birth defects.
Pregnant women should be aware that the drug Topamax® poses serious health risks to the unborn child. On March 4, 2011, the United States Food and Drug Administration issued a warning that the drug increases the risk of oral cleft defects when used by women during the first trimester of pregnancy. Oral cleft defects include cleft lip and cleft palate. Oral cleft defects occur when parts of the lip or palate do not completely fuse together and can lead to increased ear infections and other problems. They often require corrective surgery.
I guess there is a topamax lawsuit taking place right now as well. If you or anyone you know took Topamax you might think about taking part in this lawsuit.
