Available as crushable tablets, enteric-coated tablets, syrup, liquid and injection all containing the active ingredient sodium valproate, which is a medicine that is used mainly to treat epilepsy. Sodium valproate works by stabilising electrical activity in the brain. Sodium valproate prevents epileptic fits by preventing the excessive electrical activity in the brain. It is thought to achieve this by increasing the activity of a neurotransmitter called GABA in the brain.
