Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Valtec (sodium valproate
) is very useful in the treatment of absence seizure
. If absence seizure is confirmed, I agree with the decision of your treating doctor to switch to the new drug.
As far as side effects is concerned, it is well tolerated by most individuals. Minor side effects like dizziness
, swaying and balancing problems can occur especially if there drug is administed at toxic doses.
Continue as suggested by your doctor. If you happen to develop any of the aforementioned condition report back to your doctor.
Hope this answers your query.
