Valporic Acid

Were you looking for information about Valproic Acid? Valporic acid is a common misspelling of valproic acid.
If you have epilepsy, your healthcare provider may prescribe valproic acid (Depakene®), a prescription medicine that can be used to treat complex partial seizures and simple or complex absence seizures. The medication works by increasing the level of a certain chemical in the brain called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). The product comes in oral syrup or capsule form and is typically taken one to three times a day.
Side effects of valproic acid may include weight gain, blurred vision, nervousness, and uncontrollable eye movements. This medicine may not be the best choice for everyone; before starting treatment, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you have liver disease, a blood disorder, a urea cycle disorder, or any allergies.
