How well does valproate work for migraine prophylaxis? Does it make one drowsy?
Sorry this question has not been answered earlier!
Yes, drowsiness is a commonly reported side effect of valproate but it is important to realise that not everyone experiences side effects.
It is difficult to know if valproate will work for you. Patients who respond to Valproate can expect migraine frequencies to be reduced by 30% to 50% or greater by the end of one year, after which the benefits remain stable - according to clinical studies.
