Welcome to Health Care Magic

Enchorate chrono contains sodium valporate. It is a very good anti epileptic drug. Its normally prescribed dosing is 300-600mg per day. Usually it is devoid of any serious side effect. In few cases nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, ataxia, dizziness, sedation etc. are seen. But at dosing of 300 mg per day side effects like you have mentioned as memory loss, forgetting names are not seen. So please visit your psychiatrist for proper evaluation of symptoms of memory loss, decreased sleep.

Thanks, Take Care
