Topamax is a pharmaceutical product manufactured by Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson.
Topamax has been associated with birth defects in children after pregnant women have been taking the drug believing it to be safe. In March 2011, the warning label on Topamax was changed to advise of significant risks of birth defects in newborns, including oral clefts and hypospadias. Pregnant women may be taking Topamax (Topiramate) to help control and prevent certain kinds of seizures, migraine headaches and bipolar disorder.
In addition, unsuspecting women may be subjecting their newborn child to injury by taking Topamax during breastfeeding. There are side effects to the newborn which include:
- Appetite loss
- Weight loss
