Epilepsy or bipolar disorder Divalproex Sodium Divaa

Uses
Divaa (Divalproex Sodium) (also known medically as valproic acid) is an anticonvulsant mood stabilizer widely used in the management of bipolar disorder, epilepsy and for migraine prophylaxis. The active ingredient in this medicine is known to exhibit a broad spectrum of activity when used as an anticonvulsant, and it has frequently been used for the treatment of absence, myoclonic and tonic clonic seizures, as well as being given as a second line treatment for other types of seizures.

The main ingredient in this medicine is separated to its valproate ion inside the gastrointestinal tract. It then starts to work and exhibits its effects by increasing the levels of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) in the brain. This is achieved by inhibiting GABA reuptake in the neuronal cells and preventing GABA from being broken down. Resulting from this, abnormal brain activity and over-stimulation can be prevented, and this can help prevent seizures or treat bipolar disorder.

Dosage and Administration
Divaa (Divalproex Sodium) comes as special enteric coated delayed release tablets. The medicine content of each one is 250mg. Calculation of the daily dosage will be the responsibility of the doctor in charge of medical treatment, and factors which will be considered include the type of condition.

Epilepsy may be treated with a different dosage to that required for mania, and if epilepsy is being treated, the type of seizures being treated may also be considered by the doctor. Adults taking it for migraine prevention may be told to take 250mg twice per day. This may be adjusted by the doctor. In all cases, patients must not take more than the dosage recommended by their doctor.
