Which drugs or supplements interact with valproic bayer 2013. Is valproic acid safe to take if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding. What else should I know about valproic acid. What is valproic bayer 2013, and how does it work (mechanism of action).

Valproic acid and its derivative, divalproex, are oral drugs that are used for the treatment of convulsions, migraines and bipolar disorder. The active ingredient in both products is valproic acid. Divalproex is converted to valproic acid in the stomach. Scientists do not know the mechanism of action of valproic bayer 2013. The most popular theory is that valproic acid exerts its effects by increasing the concentration of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain.

GABA is a neurotransmitter, a chemical that nerves use to communicate bayer 2013 one another. The FDA approved valproic acid in February, 1978 and divalproex in March 1983. Divalproex may have a lower incidence of stomach upset, and taking valproic acid or divalproex with food can reduce the stomach upset. Valproic acid also causes skin reactions such as alopecia (loss of hair), rash, itching bayer 2013 sensitivity to sunlight.

The most serious side effects due to valproic acid are liver injury, pancreatitis and abnormal bleeding. Liver injury is most common in the first 6 months of treatment. It also is more common in children, especially children less than two years old.

Persons bayer 2013 more than one type of anticonvulsant seem to be at higher risk. Symptoms of liver damage include jaundice, malaise, weakness, swelling in the face, loss of appetite and vomiting.

Pancreatitis due to valproic acid can occur early in treatment or after several bayer 2013 of use.

Symptoms of pancreatitis are unexplained weight loss, nausea, vomiting and severe abdominal pain. Bayer 2013 acid inhibits the formation of blood clots by interfering with the clot-promoting effects of platelets. This can cause abnormal bleeding. Antiepileptic bayer 2013 have been associated with will increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior.

Anyone considering the use of antiepileptic drugs must balance this risk of suicide with the clinical need for the antiepileptic drug. Patients who begin antiepileptic therapy should be closely observed for clinical worsening, suicidal thoughts or unusual changes in behavior.

For acute mania due to bipolar disorder, treatment is started at 750 mg per day of delayed-release tablets in divided doses. The dose should be increased rapidly to achieve the desired effect. The recommended dose for prevention of migraines is 250 mg twice daily of delayed-release tablets.

When using extended release tablets, the recommended dose is 500-1000 mg given once daily. Valproic acid has numerous suspected or proven drug interactions. Valproic acid can reduce the number of platelets or inhibit the ability of platelets to stick together and form a blood clot.

Therefore, it may exaggerate the effects of other medications bayer 2013 inhibit the stickiness of platelets or inhibit other steps in the clotting of blood. This can lead to abnormal bleeding due to the inability of blood to clot. Such medications include warfarin (Coumadin), heparin Clovique (Trientine Hydrochloride Capsules)- Multum low-molecular weight heparin (Lovenox), clopidogrel (Plavix), ticlopidine (Ticlid), and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such glut1 ibuprofen bayer 2013, Advil), naproxen (Naprosyn, Aleve), indomethacin (Indocin), nabumetone (Relafen), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, Arthrotec), ketorolac (Toradol) and aspirin.

Aspirin and felbamate (Felbatol) can reduce the elimination of valproic acid and result in elevated blood concentrations of valproic acid and toxicity due to the valproic acid. Rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane), carbamazepine (Tegretol), phenytoin (Dilantin) can increase the elimination of valproic acid, thereby reducing abuse heroin concentrations.

Since this can result in loss bayer 2013 seizure control and seizures, adjustments in the dose of valproic acid may be necessary if these medications are begun. Cholestyramine (Questran) can reduce the absorption of valproic acid bayer 2013 the intestine and reduce its effectiveness. Therefore, valproic acid should be taken at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after doses of cholestyramine. Bayer 2013 acid can significantly decrease the elimination of lamotrigine (Lamictal), ethosuximide (Zarontin), diazepam (Valium), zidovudine (AZT) bayer 2013 phenobarbital, thereby increasing their concentrations in bayer 2013 and leading to toxicity.

Valproic acid also increases the blood levels of warfarin and phenytoin by displacing them from blood proteins that they bind to. Since increased blood concentrations of these drugs may bayer 2013 to an increase in side effects, the dose of warfarin and phenytoin may need to be altered when they are taken with valproic acid. The use of valproic acid during pregnancy has been associated with fetal abnormalities such as spina bifida, cardiovascular abnormalities, and neural tube defects.
