I have a 2 yr old son that has been on every practically every seizure med under the son. He is currently on depakote. Three months ago we added a dietary supplement called CARNITORE or CARNITINE (basically the same thing). It is a dietary supplement taken along with the depakote. Since he has taken this, we have noticed a huge difference, not only in his seizures, but his attention span, he is awake much much more, learning more and making many improvements he was not making without this. I would speak with your daughters neurologist about it.
