Encorate is a sodium valproate . Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are the most common side effects. In addition, hair loss with curly regrowth can occur. Ankle edema and obesity can be troublesome side effects. It shouldn't be used in patients with liver dysfunction,Allergy ,blood disorder . It will not affect fertility of a person ,don't worry
