my adult son has truamatic brain injury and difficulty swallowing. He has a feeding tube and thatg is how I have tgo give hime the Depakote sprinkles. I did no start yet -- any suggestions?
If your son has a feeding tube that you can flush with a syringe, simply mix the sprinkles in water and slowly push through the feeding tube. If that is not possible, call the prescribing physician for a liquid that can be given in a syringe by gravity, that is by holding tubing with syringe full of Depakote above the level of the insertion site, it should just slowly drain in.
Hope that makes sense, and I agree with Kaismama.
Best of luck,
