Hi there and welcome to HealingWell.

I hope you find all the support and help you need here. We are a friendly bunch who dont bite... I promise! As for the sprinkles... I cant honestly say iv'e heard of them! Are they a new drug? I will be interested in hearing peoples views on this. In the mean time, have you looked through the resource centre for epilepsy? http://www.healingwell.com/pages/Epilepsy/ There may be some clues there. There are links to other organisations as well as other peoples personal experiences.

Best Wishes

Darren

Thanks alot Darren, no its not a new drug, its the depakote in a sprinkle form so you can put it on food since young kids cant swallow pills, so far he seems to be doing well on it, and I need all the support I can get!!

I never thought about it being a kids version! I thought it was a new version of the drug with a special qualiies! (For example I take Carbamazipine RETARD which is a slow release version!)

Check out the resource page I posted. It gives many links to other websites which may help as well as useful information.
