Topamax linked to birth defects

Women of childbearing age who take the prescription medication Topamax should be aware that new studies link the drug to a risk of birth defects. Topamax is prescribed to treat seizures and migraine headaches. Research shows that taking Topamax in the first trimester of pregnancy may cause a woman’s baby to be born with a cleft palate and/or cleft lip. It is important for women who are considering becoming pregnant to talk with their doctors if they are taking Topamax, to discuss the risks versus benefits of continuing this medication.
