|I'm down to giving only 200g of valproic acid to C. as we|
wean her entirely off
The beneficiaries will be the victims of none other than valproic acid!!
Yes, the very drug that C. has been imbibing for three and a half years and that has apparently wreaked havoc with her liver.
Last night, we started C. on two diuretics - Furosemide and Spironolactone - to replace weekly drainage in the hospital. And, of course, we're still hoping that once we have finished the valproic acid weaning, her liver will recover somewhat. (We're already down from 700 to 200 mg twice a day).
And still no word from that pediatric neurologist who prescribed the friggin' stuff and ignored the signs that her liver was being damaged by it. Right up to the very end of her relationship with us!
