Any change in the medicine may affect her a lot. Do not change any medications prior consulting to the doctor.

Hello, i think your sister can change medicine while it has bad effects on her. Issue with depakine Chrono and probably others anti-epilepsy pills is that it requires slow stoping (like up to a few years i think), you canot cut it one day. You always should consult it with doctor.

I also have been taking Depakine Chrono 500mg for around 6 years and before around month after slow stopping im completelly without medication!!

I think one should try to relieve stress, do detoxication, change eating patterns to eat healthy. Stress is most important on that i think..
