Sodium Valproate and Autism
I read, today, of research done by the Alder Hay Hospital in Liverpool, that warns of the danger of children developing autism if their mothers are taking SV during pregnancy. If it is dangerous to children in the womb, is it dangerous to babies? Does anyone know of any research on this?
One of our children was diagnosed as epileptic at 18 months and put on SV. By the age of 3 years he had developed autism and now has severe complex needs.
