Specimen Type: Blood


Valproic Acid Blood Test

The Valproic (Depakote) Acid test measures the level of Valproic Acid in a person's blood.  Valproic Acid is primarily used to treat conditions which cause seizures.  Maintaining the right therapeutic level of Valproic Acid is vital for successful treatment.  Dosage which is too low or too high can fail to alleviate or even worsen a person's symptoms.

Valproic Acid testing is typically ordered to monitor blood levels for a person being treated for conditions such as bipolar disorder, chronic migraine headaches and disorders which cause seizures.  Testing is usually done when a person begins treatment as well as whenever they change medication or dosage.  Results should be interpreted by a person's doctor to help determine the proper dosage

Some people may also benefit from ordering a Free Valproic Acid Test which measures levels of unbound Valproic Acid in the blood.

Turnaround for Valproic Acid (Depakote) Test is typically 1-2 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.


People taking Valproic Acid should consult with their doctor to determine the best time to have their blood drawn in relation to when they take their medication.
