Interactions between your selected drugs
clozapine ↔ divalproex sodium
Applies to: clozapine, Depakote (divalproex sodium)
Several reports have suggested that valproate may slightly increase serum clozapine levels and levels of clozapine metabolites. Increased sedation and functional impairment may result. The mechanism of this interaction is unknown, as is its clinical significance. If clozapine and valproic acid or any of its derivatives must be used together, close observation for altered clozapine effect is recommended.
