Side Effects Of Consuming Valproic Acid Drugs With Methylprednisolone And Ranitidinee?
, want to ask, if we take nerve medicine for seizures (Folic acid and Depakote 250 mg) together with Methylprednisolone 8 mg, Ranitidine hcl 150 mg, Citicoline 500 mg, Mecobalamin 250 mcg, is it okay?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Valproic acid (depakote) is used as a therapy for seizures and epilepsy according to the literature does not have heavy drug interactions if consumed with the drugs above. Consumption of more than 5 types of drugs due to chronic diseases or other ballast diseases can actually increase the risk of side effects or drug interactions called polypharmacy, especially in elderly patients. But if in this condition the possibility of more benefits, rational administration, and the possibility of side effects are minor so that it can be continued. In the future, do routine control with your treating doctor to evaluate the response to the treatment that has been given.
That's all, hope you can help.
