Valproic acid is an anticonvulsant medication that is primarily used to treat epilepsy, bipolar disorder, neuropathic pain, migraine, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other psychological disorders. It exerts its therapeutic effect by affecting certain brain chemicals or neurotransmitters, thus improving overall brain health.
How Valproic Acid Works?
Valproic acid achieves its desired effects through the following important mechanisms:
1. It increases the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that reduces overstimulation in the brain.
2. It restores communication between neurons (nerve cells) by reducing overactivity and blocking certain pathways in the brain.
3. It protects new brain cells by blocking certain enzymes responsible for gene alteration.
