Epilim Chronosphere MR

Sanofi-Aventis has launched a new formulation of Epilim (sodium valproate).

Epilim Chronosphere modified-release granules are available in 5 different strengths (50mg, 100mg, 250mg, 500mg and 750mg) and are particularly suitable for children able to swallow soft food and adults with swallowing difficulties, for all forms of epilepsy.

Each sachet contains small waxy microgranules that can be sprinkled on soft food or in drinks, which should be cold or at room temperature, e.g. yoghurt, mousse, jam, ice cream, milk shake or orange juice.

If preferred the granules can be poured directly into the mouth and washed down with a cold drink.
