Welcome to HCM
Epilex chrono contains sodium valporate. It is a broad spectrum anti epileptic drug. As you have recently suffered jerks and mild seizure
even on 1000 mg valporate so dose increase was must. Now you are on 1200 mg of drug. Sodium Valporate is a safe drug and usual side effects are nausea
, weight gain, dizziness
, curling of hair, in some males hair loss, and decreased platelet counts. But as you were on 1000 mg and just 200 mg is increased the chances of side effects are very low. The drug is must for your seizures so continue with the drug.
