I'm so disappointed at this latest news from the world of medicine. I heard that it has been discoverd that a drug used to treat epilepsy and migraine headaches has been linked to birth defects in childrens who's parents have taken the drug. Topamax was supposed to be a miracle drug that helped ease the suffering of it's patients. The birth defects cause cleft lips or palets and it is a very scary situation. The Topamax lawsuit was recently launched to bring accountability to the drug companies that have pushed these drugs onto the market. It is so angering to hear of these lawsuits being launched because it means that another group of people have been hurt by those they trusted.
