Even though I haven’t had much success with the depakote IV ‘s so far, the neurologist and I have decided to start taking a daily oral low dose. But not after extensive warnings and reassurances that I can ABSOLUTELY NOT get pregnant! The chance of devastating birth defects are guaranteed while taking this medication. Luckily I have no plans whatsoever to have more children, and we take plenty precautions 😉
The neurologist also has me scheduled for a Neuropsychology evaluation at the hospital in July. It is a 3 hour long exam to test my memory and stuff. I’ll keep you posted on that.
“Neuropsychological tests are specifically designed tasks used to measure a psychological function known to be linked to a particular brain structure or pathway. Tests are used for research into brain function and in a clinical setting for the diagnosis of deficits.”
