Depakene oral solution is a medication used for various purposes, including the treatment of seizure disorders, mental/mood conditions such as the manic phase of bipolar disorder, and the prevention of migraine headaches. It contains valproic acid as the active ingredient.

Valproic acid, the main component of Depakene oral solution, belongs to the class of medications called anticonvulsants. It works by calming overactive nerves in the body and preventing and controlling seizures in people with epilepsy.

Use and Dosage

Read the Medication Guide and, if available, the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start taking valproate sodium and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor. You may take it with food if stomach upset occurs. Use a specially marked device to measure the correct amount of medication. Valproate sodium syrup should not be mixed with carbonated drinks because it may irritate the mouth and throat.

The dosage is based on your age, weight, medical condition, response to treatment, and other medications you may be taking. Be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use it at the same time each day to keep the amount of medication in your blood constant.

If this medication is used for seizures, do not stop taking it without consulting your doctor. Your condition may become worse if the drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased.

This medication does not relieve acute migraine headaches. Take other medications as directed by your doctor for acute attacks.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve.
