I am searching for anyone who had a mother that took Thalidomide and packaged as Kevadon in blister packs from their O.B.G.Y.N. in the late 50s, early 60s. I had a mom who was given the Thalidomide in the packs, directly from her Dr., no prescription. I have no life due to chronic pain and poor health. I believe all my problems are directly related to the (morning sickness pill) thalidomide she took. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fricking hilarious! Yes, we are all experts on everything from soup to nuts, or so some of us think. Where's Reader when you need her?

Next time read the question Enzyte Bob, a.k.a.( See how clever and quick witted Bob is) I was looking for victims of Thalidomide.

I, too, believe that my mother took this medication as I was born 6/13/1962 and had a multitude of birth defects that are directly related to Thalidomide/Kevadon. I was born in Columbia, Missouri and, up until recently, where I found out for sure that she took something, I was only suspicious and couldn't find out for sure. It's been a long time coming.

I was born 6/2/1959 Chattanooga Tn. My mother supposedly took one pill. I too, was born with multiple birth defects. Cannot find proof that Kevadon/Thalidomide was in USA. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am on facebook.

I was born in April of 1964 with multiple Birth defects. My birth mother gave me up and records are gone. my adoptive mother said it was Thalidomide but could provide no proof.

Any information about Thalidomide given out in the Chicagoland area in 1963 would help me greatly. email me at mikabl (at) gmail (dot) com

replace at with @ and dot with .

Thanks!
