Encorate Chrono contains the active ingredient Sodium Valproate, it is most commonly used to prevent the seizures associated with Epilepsy.

And yes, there can be side effects to the baby, this medication has been found to cause some birth defects, when used in pregnant women.

The problem, however, is that some patients only respond to this medication and if seizures occur, during pregnancy, it can have grave consequences to both the mother and child.

As to what else may be available for her to use that would be safer, since I don't know where you are located, I really don't know what your other options are.

Have either one of you spoken to her doctor about your concerns?

Please consult your doctor whether your wife should continue taking this tablet during her pregnancy period. It is always better to avoid most of these medications during pregnancy to avoid later complications. Your doctor will weigh the risk-benefit ratio and take a call on this.
