DEPAKENE SYRUP (VALPROIC ACID)

Depakene Syrup Description

Your doctor may provide you with a prescription for Depakene Syrup to control complex partial, simple partial and other types of seizures that may be a result of epilepsy. This syrup form of the active ingredient Valproic Acid is especially easy to administer to young children or those that have trouble swallowing pills. Uncontrolled seizures can be extremely dangerous for young and old, specifically those without any warning. If you fall as you lose consciousness on a flight of stairs, a busy road, play ground, or even your living area, it can be dangerous.

How Depakene Syrup Helps Control Seizures

When taken as prescribed, Depakene Syrup increases the amount of a natural brain chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). This is one of many neurotransmitters that are involved in sending messages between nerve cells. GABA is responsible for keeping the nerve activity in your brain in balance and acts as a natural calming agent. It is also believed that Depakene Syrup interferes with sodium entering nerve cells so there is no build-up that can cause rapid electrical signals to be passed on and cause a seizure.

Information About Types of Seizures

A simple partial seizure can occur when electrical activity is disrupted in one area of your brain and can cause you to twitch involuntarily, hallucinate, or have slurred speech while you are fully conscious and can remember the episode. For some people, this may be a warning sign that something more serious is about to happen so you’re able to prepare for it and get to a safe position or location.

The “something more serious” could be a complex partial seizure that displays the same symptoms as a simple partial seizure, but with a loss or impairment of consciousness and little or no memory of the event. These are the dangerous type of seizures that can interfere with every aspect of your day to day living unless they can be treated or controlled with medication such as Depakene Syrup.

Before You Take Depakene Syrup

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding before taking Depakene Syrup as it can be harmful for your unborn or nursing baby. You should use an effective form of birth control while taking Depakene Syrup.

Discuss other medical conditions you have with your doctor and list all OTC and Rx medications you are taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements as some of the ingredients could interact negatively if taken during treatment with Depakene Syrup. If you are taking Estrogen, tell your doctor as this can reduce the effectiveness of Depakene Syrup.

Proper Use of Depakene Syrup

Do not stop taking Depakene Syrup without your doctor’s knowledge as this could result in the increased risk of severe seizures. Until you know how your body will react to Depakene Syrup, you should not perform any tasks considered unsafe if you are not alert and in control. You should not drink alcohol while taking Depakene Syrup as it could intensify some of the side effects.
