Depakote: A Brief Overview:

Depakote, an Abbott Laboratories drug, was approved for use in 1983 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Since that time, it has primarily been used to treat epilepsy and secondarily, depression. Over the years, research has shown the side effects of Depakote to increase the risk of birth defects in infants whose mothers who took the drug even as early as their first trimester. Inadequate warnings by Abbott Laboratories resulted in the use of Depakote by numerous pregnant women throughout the United States, with harmful consequences to their infants.
