Is there a liquid form of Depakote which could be injected into an IV line for a patient who cannot have food or liquids due to Pancreatitis?
Yes there is an injectable form however it is said that effects in use beyond 14 days are not known so it is not a long term solution.
You might want to check with a compounding pharmacy - they are often able to make different forms of medications. Check with your pharmacy - they are usually able to tell you where the closest compounding pharmacy to you is located. Compounding isn't any different than a regular prescription - your doctor's office can call it in as a compound without any difficulty and you usually pay your regular insurance copay.
