Topamax Class Action
Merchant Law Group LLP is pursuing class action litigation against Johnson & Johnson and other manufacturers of the drug TOPOMAX on behalf of Canadians who used Topamax and suffered medical side effects. These medications, which are normally used to treat migraines, are alleged to cause various injuries, beginning with eye problems. Users of Topamax reported pain and redness of the eye, impaired vision and fluid build-up in the eye which can lead to glaucoma. In addition, babies born to mothers who took Topamax early in pregnancy face an increased risk of developing a birth defect known as cleft palate. This condition causes incomplete development of the lips, mouth and nose and can lead to lifelong problems if not corrected during infancy. The child may develop speech problems, have nutritional deficiencies and be subject to frequent ear infections. Surgery is required to correct cleft palate, and it may have to be repeated as the child grows.
It is alleged that the drug manufacturers failed to adequately warn Canadians of the risks associated with the drugs and that the warning remains inadequate.
