Depakote: serious adverse events

What all this information really illustrates is that the alleged threat from Depakote remains

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2013

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and is now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Depakote.

A new study published online on January 31st, 2013, in the journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry revealed that prenatal exposure to valproate (Depakote) is linked with neurodevelopmental disorders. Depakote (valproate) is a drug, manufactured by Abbott Laboratories, most commonly prescribed for psychiatric conditions like manic depressive disorder (bipolar disorder), epilepsy and to prevent migraine headaches. Autistic spectrum disorder was the most frequent diagnosis in this study.

Another study, published on March 6th, 2013 in the international neuroscience journal Acta Neurologica Scandinavica, revealed that valproate (Depakote) is linked with birth defects.

Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Depakote severe complications. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that the alleged threat from Depakote remains. For that reason," he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

According to court documents, on January 25th, 2013 a South Carolina man filed a lawsuit in Illinois Southern District Court (case no. 3:2013cv00082) alleging he suffered birth defects as a result of his mother’s ingestion of Depakote while pregnant with him.

AttorneyOne.com has further information on Depakote lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
