Sodium Valproate is a medication under the branding of VELPY. Sodium valproate, also known as valproic acid, is a medication that is used to treat a variety of neurological and psychiatric conditions, including epilepsy, bipolar disorder, and migraines. It works by increasing the levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that regulates brain activity, and stabilizing electrical activity in the brain. 

While sodium valproate is generally effective and well-tolerated, it can cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, and tremors. In rare cases, it can cause more serious side effects, such as liver damage, pancreatitis, and a decrease in the number of white blood cells, so regular monitoring by a doctor is recommended.
