valproic acid medicat.ion, if it will let the doctor know if you are using the medication prescribed
It depends on which tests he performs. If he checks a blood level of the drug, it will show whether the levels are therapeutic, subtherapeutic or high depending on whether you take it properly or not. He may just be checking to see if the drug is affecting your body organs. Valproic acid can cause damage to your liver and it can affect the pancrease too so he may check bloodwork to determine if any damage is being done to your organs or affecting certain blood values.
Yes, when your doctor is checking to see what your levels are. Yes, to know how much or less you need for your health benefits. Yes for your over all health, like is this medication depleting your Vitamin D. And most important, everyone is different, our body, our system, and medications like this has a toxic level so that being said... blood work ups are a must in my opinion. Well wishes
