Ingredient(s): Divalproex Sodium Equivalent to Valproic Acid 250 or 500mg Indications: Epilepsy
Divalproex sodium tablets are indicated as monotherapy and adjunctive therapy in the treatment of patients with complex partial seizures that occur either in isolation or in association with other types of seizures.
Divalproex sodium tablets are also indicated for use as sole and adjunctive therapy in the treatment of simple and complex absence seizures, and adjunctively in patients with multiple seizure types that include absence seizures. Mania
Divalproex sodium tablets are indicated for the treatment of the manic episodes associated with bipolar disorder.
A manic episode is a distinct period of abnormally and persistently elevated, expansive, or irritable mood. Typical symptoms of mania include pressure of speech, hyperactivity, reduced need for sleep, flight of ideas, grandiosity, poor judgment, aggressiveness, and possible hostility. Migraine
Divalproex sodium tablets are indicated for prophylaxis of migraine headaches in adults. There is no evidence that divalproex sodium tablets are useful in the acute treatment of migraine headaches. Because valproic acid may be a hazard to the fetus, divalproex sodium tablets should be considered for women of childbearing potential only after this risk has been thoroughly discussed with the patient and weighed against the potential benefits of treatment
