Abstract

Anti-epileptic drugs are commonly used in the management of neuropathic pain. Sodium valproate, however, is an anti-epileptic drug that is not commonly used. We report four patients with neuropathic pain who responded very well to the initiation of low-dose oral sodium valproate. Low-dose sodium valproate may have a role in managing neuropathic pain, especially when other first-line agents are unsuccessful or relatively contraindicated.
