valproic acid

Talked to Eva tonight, she says the new medicine (the one that can cause liver, bone marrow and pancreas problems and is only supposed to be for older children) has had some good results. His atopic seizures are now down to 5 per day! However, the medicine makes him very agitated and aggressive. The active ingredient is valproic acid and she said the brand was depakote. When I looked up Depakote it was described as something for manic depressives. I'm not sure if it's the same thing or not though.

Tomorrow morning at 8:20AM I pick up Frau Jettmar at the CalTrain station so she can get her
visa extension from the INS offices downtown.
