Sodium valproate and epilepsy

Sodium valproate is an epilepsy medicine. It is often prescribed under the brand name Epilim; however other brand names are also used. For some people it might be the most effective epilepsy medicine. However, sodium valproate carries a higher risk than other anti-epileptic drugs of causing birth defects and developmental problems in babies if taken during pregnancy.
