Thank you for posting your query.
chrono is a safe and effective medication for treating fits. The dose depends on the body weight- 15 to 60 mg per kg body weight. So, the dose of 200 mg twice daily (total dose per day of 400 mg) is quite low.
If you still feel that the drowsiness
is because of the overdosage of encorate (sodium valproate
), we can do a blood test
to look for its level- serum valproate level. If found high, the dose may be reduced or stopped altogether and replaced with another medicine such as phenytoin
