Abstract

Divalproex was successfully used in a 7-year-old boy suffering from treatment-refractory school refusal complicated with a mood disturbance and anxiety. Divalproex had demonstrated a rapid effect in reducing school anxiety and improving school attendance after multiple failures of other agents. Divalproex may be an effective agent for treating school refusal in children with emotional and/or behavior disturbances.
