    Abstract

    Valproic acid, a broad spectrum anti-epileptic drug, had been proven efficacious and tolerable, but its serum drug concentration monitoring value remains obscure. This study was carried out to determine valproic acid concentration range associated with efficacy and tolerability, and the prognostic factors associated with seizure control. Asid valproik, ubat sawan berspektrum luas, telah dibuktikan berkesan dan mempunyai kesan sampingan yang rendah, tetapi kepentingan pemantauan kepekatannya dalam darah didapati kurang jelas. Kajian ini dijalankan untuk menentukan julat kepekatan berkaitan dengan keberkesanan dan kesan sampingan asid valproik dan faktor-faktor yang menentukan penyakit sawan dapat dikawal.
