You might have heard about Depakote before, especially if you suffer from seizures of epilepsy, manic episodes in bipolar disorder and migraine headaches. I know that many pregnant women are likely to suffer from migraines, especially during pregnancy. Pregnancy does not really help them feel better. The truth is that Depakote should be prescribed to women only in very extreme situations, when the drug is really necessary. The reason this happens is that the drug can have a negative impact on the life of the fetus. If this happens, a woman who gave birth to a child with birth defects should consider filing a Depakote Lawsuit to bring the company to justice as soon as possible.
