Valproic acid and pregnancy. A problema for reflection

  • When were the risks associated with taking valproic acid during pregnancy known? What is the magnitude of its effects?
  • How many children could have suffered its effects?
  • What initiatives have been launched to minimize exposure of pregnant women to valproic acid?
  • How can this have happened if information about valproate’s negative effects has been available for a long time?
  • What can we do to prevent more children being exposed to valproic acid?
