Children born to women who took the epilepsy drug Depakote while pregnant had lower IQ scores than those whose moms took three other antiseizure meds, research published this week shows. The results suggest that women of childbearing age should only use Depakote as a last resort, the American and British study authors say.
The average IQ among three-year-olds whose mothers took Depakote (chemical name valproate) was 92, compared with 101 for children exposed in utero to lamotrigine, 99 among kids whose moms took phenytoin and 98 for children whose mother took carbamazepine, according to the study in this week's New England Journal of Medicine. The results are based on 309 children being followed at 25 epilepsy centers in the U.S. and the United Kingdom.
