You are most welcome. I thought that was the med you meant, but since the P and the K were reversed, I wanted to be sure. I took Depakote which is the same chemically also. It can cause weight gain and some hair loss, but hair does grow back so that was not a bad problem. It also caused my hands to tremble, but the med did have a positive benefit in that it was the first med I took that stopped my nocturnal seizures. It did not stop my seizures altogether, however. I think this is so nice to be able to offer assistance to someone in another country. It definitely says that we are all in this together. I do wish you and your daughter the best. Do keep in touch.
