It has recently been discovered that Topamax (Topiramate) has been linked to birth defects in children, increasing the likelihood of cleft lip or cleft palate formation. Topamax is used to help prevent seizures in epileptics and to prevent severe headaches in chronic migraine sufferers. Recently, the FDA released an announcement stating that data has shown an increased risk of craniofacial birth defects (cleft lip or cleft palate) in children born to women who used Topamax during pregnancy. If you believe that your child’s cleft lip/cleft palate may have been affected by your use of the Topamax drug, you probably have questions about what resources and remedies are available to you and what they will cost. Children who are born with a cleft lip/palate have a number of difficulties that will confront them in their lives. However, it is surgically possible to begin remedying the issue within the first two to three months after birth. In many cases, when surgery is undertaken, there can be a full and complete recovery.
