Thanks for using healthcare magic.
I went through the query & understood your concern..

Sinecod is a cough supressant and hence depress central nervous system(CNS) activity and depakote (sodium valproate) also depress CNS.So there will be interactions with higher doses. So you can take sinecod at low dose if absolute necessary or elso better to avoid. Do regular salt water gargle.

If you have any further query, please don't hesitate to ask me.
