Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your dad's symptoms and current medications.

Valprol CR (sodium valproate) is a safe medication for control of seizures, and his leg pains are not due to this. Please check his calcium and vitamin D levels, as their deficiency can cause leg pains.

For seizures, did he undergo MRI brain and EEG tests? If not, they should be done to find out the underlying cause of his seizures.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
