This is a sad event that happened to our family 3 years ago. My sister was already due for baby delivery when her seizure attacked her. We are no longer new to this because this was her second child ans even before she had seizures attacked. But this second time is quite anew to us because her doctor prescribed her topamax, a drug used for child and adult seizures. She was advised to take the drug so that seizure attacks will be minimized.

It was already her due date and we were excited because she was going to deliver a twins this time. We waited for about 3 hours on the labor room until the doctor went out and said that there is a good news and at the same time a bad news about one of the twins. The good thing is that they are all well and healthy and the sad thing is that one of the twin has a cleft lip. We were all shock by the event. Immediately the doctor asked what medicines were taken during her pregnancy, especially my sister has seizure attack history. We told the doctor that she had been taking topamax drug for her seizure. The cleft lip can still be remedied but we were very eager to file a Topamax lawsuit to give justice to our baby. It is the side effects of the drug that is dangerous to pregnant women. We immediately contacted our lawyer and we need justice for this. The court that hears the case sided on us and made the company pay for the damages that was caused by the drug that they created. This is a lesson for us and we will never forget it. Thanks to our team of lawyers who stand by our side and fought along with us.
