Is there any problem if I miss a dose of Valparin?
Q: I am taking Valparin chrono for the last 3 years, twice in a day at 12 hours gap. I am 44 years old. Once I missed my morning dose. Is there any serious problem if I forget to take the medication once in a while?
A:One should not miss a dose since it can trigger an attack of epilepsy. I would also suggest that one should take long-acting preparation of sodium valproate/valproic acid such as Valcontin (by ModiMundipharma) for 24-hours coverage. I hope you are getting Liver Function Tests regularly.
