No, there is currently no known treatment for Retinitis Pigmentosa, though a daily intake of 15,000ius of Vitamin A has been known to slow its progress in some people at some stages of it.

Dicorate contains Valproid Acid and it is an anticonvulsant that's also used as a mood stabilizer.

I am not sure why it was prescribed for RP. Did you ask the doctor why he though it would be helpful?

Dr Kopal Mithal Says:

Dear Ms Srivastava, Valproate is a drug which is usually used for epilepsy and mood disorders, but has been reported in 2011 by Clemson et al and this year in our country at Shankara netralaya to be effective in RP to some extent. A international randomised trial for same is also underway for the same. If you watch out for the side effects and potential teratogenicity, this drug is being tried as a new therapy for RP. Wish u good luck.
