Valproic Syrup is a strawberry-flavoured oral solution of valproic acid, which is a generic drug that is used to treat seizures in epileptics.
While not a cure, doctors prescribe Valproic Syrup to patients with epilepsy because it is an anticonvuslant, a preventative medication to decrease the number of seizures and reduce their severity.
It is thought that valproic acid works by increasing the levels of a brain chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a type of inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain that switches messages off. In this way, valproic acid “calms” the brain down and less seizures occur.
Your doctor will prescribe the individualized dosage regimen for you based on your weight, number of seizures and other medication that you are taking. You may take this medication with or without food. Do not abruptly stop taking this medication without talking to your doctor.
These may not be all the side effects of Valproic Syrup.
You should not take Valproic Syrup if you have porphyria, an allergy to the valproic acid, urea cycle disorders or liver malfunction.
Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have liver disease, kidney problems or are thinking about becoming pregnant. This medication has been associated liver failure, pancreatitis and birth defects.
Store Valproic Syrup at room temperature and safely out of reach of children.
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder marked by sudden, unprovoked recurrent seizures. Symptoms vary but may include unconsciousness, convulsions or seizures, muscle rigidity or loss of muscle tone. Seizures are separated into two main groups. Focal (or partial) seizures start in a particular site, or ‘focus’, within one brain hemisphere. The second type, called generalized seizures, spread across the brain. Most generalized seizures are associated with changes in the body’s muscles, such as stiffening (tonic) or rhythmic jerking movements (clonic). There are six main types of generalized seizures: tonic clonic seizures (previously called grand mal seizures), absence seizures (previously called petit mal seizures), clonic seizures, tonic seizures, atonic seizures and myoclonic seizures.
