Hello doctor,

Due to muscle spasm, I was given Orphenadrine and Magnesium. Is it safe to use these medications for patients with controlled epilepsy on Valproate?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Regarding your concern, I would explain that there are no interactions between Valproate and Orphenadrine or Magnesium. So, it is safe to take all these drugs concomitantly, as they do not interact with each other.

Besides, both these drugs (Orphenadrine and Magnesium) do not exacerbate or interfere with seizures. So, there is nothing to worry about.
