... born (8 mos. gestation). This was in 1992.While I was taking the drug, I experienced trouble calculating simple math problems and also comprehending what I was reading. I had always been good at math and was an avid reader since I learned how in grade school. After all these years I have never fully regained my former levels of ability and now they seem to be getting worse at a rate that exceeds what you would expect with normal aging (I'm now 53). Also, my son has always been ADHD and has been described by doctors as being in the 99 percentile. My son's life skills are seriously compromised by this disorder. Has anyone else had similar problems?

My daughter was also given Brethine throughout her second pregnancy. My granddaughter who is now 19 has always had learning disabilities and has been diagnosed as ADHD & Bipolar. She has had siezures for the past few years and the doctors have not been able to find any reason for them. Her life skills are also seriously compromised. She had a child at 16 and that child was born with the nerves behind both of her eyes damaged. She cannot see at all out of one eye and has limitied vision in the other. Who can say for sure that Brethine was the cause of all these issues, however her mother was very healthy and there is no family history prior to my granddaughters birth to explain these health issues. The medical & drug industry just need to STOP using our children as their guinnypigs!! I sincerely hope you and your son don't suffer any more severe issues in the future...
