What is Divalproex?

Divalproex acid is a chemical compound that has found clinical use as an anticonvulsant and mood-stabilizing drug primarily in the treatment of epilepsy and bipolar disorder, but also used to treat migraine headaches and schizophrenia.

In epileptics, divalproex acid is used to control absence seizures, tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal), complex partial seizures, and the seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.

Divalproex is also used to control mania associated with bipolar disorder.
