Yes. My wife and I had three children. The first child had respiratory arrest as an infant and other issue. Second child was stillborn at 33 weeks term. Third child has permanent growth deficit, very small hands, born with hole in heart, severe dental issues, differing eye colors and other apparent FVS traits. Abbott found VPA (valproic acid) in human male semen in measurable amounts after a single 500 mg dose in a 1977 study. The FDA label has never disclosed VPA in human semen despite Abbott later labeling Depakene and Depakote as teratogens or causing birth defects in women becoming pregnant by their male partners. AbbVie denies responsibility.
