hi i am taking epilim 200 chrono release (1000mg per day) as my medication for absence seizures now but it is no longer available in my country. i only have for a couple more weeks in supply. The pharmacy is now recommending VALPARIN-200 alkalets. Is it the same as epilim.
Hi! I had gone through your query and understand your concern.
Yes,Epilim and Valparin are the same drug.They are produced by different pharmaceutical companies,that's the reason why they have different names but the active ingredient is Sodium Valproate in both of them. You don't need to worry.
Take care. Dr.Rovena
