All antiepileptic medications are required for long term and they may have side effects. Torvate chrono (sodium valproate
) causes weight gain, tremors, hair loss, etc. Cloba (clobazam
) causes increased sleepiness. Lamosyn may cause rash
. Muscle pain
generally is not a side effect of these medications. So, it may be useful to get him examined by a neurologist/physician to determine the exact reason behind his symptoms.
