hi iona,

what med? makes a difference.

I'm way too tired.

The short answer is how much is being absorbed into your system, and how fast it is being eliminated. Epilim (sodium valproate) is metabolized (cleared) by the liver.

Are you keeping meds down after taking them?

You liver could be working better, or possibly some other med or chemical could be causing it to be metabolized faster.

Go look at the PI sheets and see if it mentions anything about this.

My pdoc was concerned that I was just below the low end of what's considered the therapeutic level for depakote.  But I was quite stable, so he saw no need to increase the dosage.  If you're feeling well, tell your pdoc, and he might agree to keep you there and monitor your moods carefully in case you become unstable.
