Hi, has anyone any experience of Sodium Valproate being prescribed for a person with an Alzheimer's diagnosis. My mum was distressed for the majority of the day. Crying, clinging on to any human hand, repeatedly asking where she is and shouting her own name. After several weeks and many meetings with different people linked in some way to the memory clinic and finally at an appointment that the home and myself were not aware was going to take place this medication was prescribed.Initially a low dose that was increased over a period of time. The more research I did (including Alzheimer's Society website) the more concerns I had for the effects of this anti epileptic medication and was wondering if anyone else had been prescribed this for a loved one.
