Valproate risk in pregnancy



We are dedicated to the ongoing safety surveillance and proactive risk management of all our products.

In line with our global team response, Sanofi wants to ensure patients understand the risks associated with valproate in female children, women of childbearing potential and pregnant women. Educational materials are being made available to healthcare professionals and patients to provide more information about this risk.

This applies to all brands of valproate, including Epilim, Sodium Valproate Sandoz, Valpro EC and Valproate Winthrop.
