What is Valproic Acid assay used for?

Valproic acid is a widely used anti-epileptic drug. It is used in the treatment of primary and secondary generalised seizures. Valproic acid has also become increasingly effective in the control of partial seizures. Measurements obtained by this device are used in the diagnosis and treatment of valproic acid overdose and in monitoring levels of valproic acid to ensure appropriate therapy. Within the therapeutic range most individuals will respond well to valproic acid treatment however, the side effects associated with toxicity of this drug can include tremors, gastrointestinal problems, dizziness and vision problems.
