Question:
I have heard of Bendectin/Diclectin and the history of the drugs, as being the most tested drug to see if it causes birth defects. I am currently a senior at Purdue University of Ft. Wayne, Indiana and I am doing a seminar about the drug. If you could please send me information on the drug and studies that have been done to prove that Bendectin/Diclectin don't cause an increase in birth defects I would a appreciate it. Thank you Holly Sanderson
