Therapeutic levels: Divalproex dose is correlated with effect, i, e., sz control, and appropriate blood levels. You may have weighed less 10-12 years ago, and now require a higher dose to control your szs.
Not clear whether this dose works well, controls your problem, or causes side effects. Best to get updated with your neurologist.
