In brief: Depakine Chrono

Depakine chrono is not available in the us, but we have other forms of valproic acid here.
It has multiple mechanisms, including increasing gaba (an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the cns). It might also work by suppressing repeated neuronal firing by inhibiting voltage-sensitive sodium channels. It can prevent partial and generalized seizures, including absence seizures.
