Encorate contains Sodium Valproate.

Product Overview

Encorate is a medication containing the active ingredient Sodium Valproate (200mg). It is formulated as a gastro-resistant tablet, designed to release the medication in the intestine rather than the stomach to reduce gastrointestinal side effects. Encorate is commonly prescribed for the treatment of epilepsy, bipolar disorder, and migraine headaches. It belongs to the class of anticonvulsant and mood stabilizing drugs known as antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) or anticonvulsants.


Encorate is primarily used to control seizures in patients with epilepsy, including generalized tonic-clonic seizures, absence seizures, and partial seizures. It is also indicated for the management of manic episodes associated with bipolar disorder and for the prophylaxis of migraine headaches. Encorate helps stabilize mood fluctuations and reduce the frequency and severity of seizures by modulating neurotransmitter activity in the brain.

How to Use

Take Encorate tablets orally with plenty of water, preferably with food to minimize stomach upset. Swallow the tablets whole without crushing or chewing them. Gastro-resistant tablets should not be broken or dissolved before consumption, as this may interfere with their delayed-release mechanism. Follow the dosage regimen prescribed by your healthcare provider carefully to achieve optimal therapeutic outcomes.

How it Works

Sodium Valproate, the active ingredient in Encorate, works by increasing the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that inhibits the excitability of neurons in the brain. By enhancing GABAergic neurotransmission, Encorate suppresses abnormal electrical activity in the brain, which is characteristic of epilepsy. Additionally, Sodium Valproate may exert mood-stabilizing effects by modulating the activity of other neurotransmitter systems involved in the regulation of mood and behavior.

Dosage and Administration

The dosage of Encorate varies depending on the patient’s age, weight, medical condition, and response to treatment. It is typically initiated at a low dose and gradually increased to achieve the desired therapeutic effect while minimizing side effects. Your healthcare provider will determine the appropriate dosage regimen and may adjust it periodically based on your clinical response. It is important to adhere to the prescribed dosage and regimen consistently.

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of Encorate may include drowsiness, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weight gain. These side effects are usually mild and transient, improving with continued use or dose adjustment. However, if you experience persistent or severe side effects, inform your healthcare provider promptly for further evaluation and management.


Encorate should be used with caution in patients with a history of liver disease, pancreatitis, or bleeding disorders, as it may exacerbate these conditions. It is contraindicated in individuals with hypersensitivity to Sodium Valproate or other components of the formulation. Pregnant women and women of childbearing potential should discuss the risks and benefits of Encorate with their healthcare provider, as it may pose risks to the fetus. Close monitoring of liver function tests and blood cell counts may be necessary during treatment with Encorate.
