FDA warning: Topamax during pregnancy.

Ther recently FDA reported that Topamax can increase the risk for birth defects in children born to women who took Topamax during pregnancy. The FFA annoucement was related to medical data that was created from the North American Antiepileptic Drug (AED) Pregnancy Registry. This date indicated that woman who used Topmax during the first trimester have a greatly increased risk of giving birth to infants with oral clefts. The risk is of cleft lip and cleft palate is more than 16 times greater than similar drugs. Cleft lips and cleft palates occur when the mouth of an unborn child does not form properly, resulting in either a split lip or a hole in the roof of the mouth. The condition may require several surgeries to correct and can lead to developmental issues.

The FDA has re-classified Topamax as a Class D drug to signify the evidence of fetal risk based on human data. Topamax mostly prescribed for treatment of seizures associated with epilepsy and for severe migraines. The drug is manufactured by Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson.
