My brother is developmentally slow and he has a seizure disorder. He was taken off of depakote 6 months ago and just had 6 seizures a few days ago and was put back on the depakote. Now he isnt talking or laughing anymore, he wont crawl or anything! Does anyone know of another medication he can take where he wont be so sedated? Please help me if you know of anything, he was doing so well off of the medication!
