The prescription drug Depakote is the trade name given to a drug called divalproex sodium. It is prescribed to treat seizures, headaches, and some psychiatric conditions such as bi-polar disorder.

If you or a loved one has been injured after taking prescription Depakote, you may have a legal case against the drug manufacturer.

Filing a Depakote Lawsuit

We are currently screening cases involving claims of injuries sustained by pregnant woman who were prescribed and took the prescription drug Depakote. Depakote use by pregnant woman has also been linked to fetal valproate syndrome. This is a serious medical condition that can cause children to develop facial deformities over their lifetime. The FDA has recently announced that Depakote should not be taken by pregnant woman as a treatment for migraine headaches. The FDA found that there was evidence that this medication can cause a decrease in the child's IQ.

  • Spinal Biffida
