Taking certain migraine drugs during pregnancy can lower your child's future brain power.
The FDA issued a new warning about the drug Valproate Monday.
It says children exposed to the drug before birth have lower I.Q. scores.
Valproate is found in several migraine medications.
It's also used to treat epileptic seizures and bipolar disorder.
From the FDA:
"Valproate products include: valproate sodium (Depacon), divalproex sodium (Depakote, Depakote CP, and Depakote ER), valproic acid (Depakene and Stavzor), and their generics."
As always, check with your physician before stopping or starting any drug therapy.
