medicine change

My father used to take valparine chrono 300 twice a day. Recently, his physician changed the drug and now shifting from valparine chrono 300 (twice) to EPILIVE 500 twice a day --- for lesser side-effects.
If someone knows about it, please comment.

Hello,
Any drug can cause side effects.Valparin may cause side effects like nausea, weight gain, hair loss, confusion and hepatotoxicity. Epilive is used in partial onset seizures in adults .It is generally well tolerated. The side effects with this drug are gait problems, dizziness, mood changes, thrombocytopenia, leucopenia etc .Uncontrolled seizures or having side effects to a particular medication are few indications for changing any particular antiseizure medicine. Discuss with his treating physician.
Good luck!
