My friend was taking valparin chrono 500. Because it was in short supply, the pharmacist suggested Encorate 500. I would like to know what are the side effects? Can it be merely substituted with the same dosage as valparin or should we reduce dosage? How does it effect memory? Any other side effects that we should be concerned about?
