Topamax is a prescription drug manufactured by Ortho-McNeil, a division of the pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson. Topamax was originally prescribed for people with epilepsy, migraine headaches, and seizures, but was later prescribed for many other off-label uses. In March 2011, an FDA warning was issued over dangers of greatly increased risks of serious birth defects in babies with mothers who had taken Topamax while pregnant. The drug maker later admitted to promoting Topamax for uses not approved by the FDA, and paid an $81 million fine. As more evidence of serious side effects and birth defects from Topamax usage has emerged, the manufacturer has been sued for multiple Topamax lawsuits.
If you are the parent of a child who has suffered harm or side effects from Topamax drug usage during pregnancy, you may have certain rights to compensation for yourself and your child from the manufacturer. These rights may include:
The costs and hardships to families hurt by Topamax side effects can be immense. Topamax lawyers all over the United States are helping those injured by Topamax to get the compensation and legal help they deserve. Many Topamax class action lawsuits have settled already, sparing families the trouble and delay of court litigation.
Having experienced legal representation can mean the difference between a successful claim and recovery for monetary damages, or a lifetime of serious medical expenses and health problems for children of mothers who took Topamax while pregnant.
