... take it because it damaged their kidneys and clouded their minds. Is there a class action lawsuit for adults now-not just because it causes birth defects?
I would make an educated guess in stating that the only class action lawsuits presently occurring pertain to birth defects due to depakote consumption while pregnant. Actually, it is lithium which affects the kidneys in rare cases; depakote needs to be watched for liver issues. However, it is also stated that alcohol use in itself damages the liver to a greater degree than depakote ever would. But it seems as though depakote has been tried and tested long enough now to conclude that side effects are not that common in terms of severe illness from the drug.
