Hi Andrew,
Now you have brought up an interesting issue. Valproic acid is a natural substance derived from a constituant in the root of the valarian plant.
Now as far as the "problems of Zyprexa", which ones?
I lean toward that taking Valarian root for withdrawal from Zyprexa might be contraindicated on the basis that there would be another chemical introduced into the matter. There could be then adverse results from a combination of drugs. I do not agree with giving drugs to someone in withdrawal or to substitute an addiction with another addiction. And valproic acid could be an anti-convulsant. The fact that the plant can produce a drug could raise the issue of taking herbal suppliments as being a drug. Many supplements have been taken off the market, in the USA, such as Ephrida and others. And when you take a supplement, it is generally unregulated by the FDA so there could be unknown substances in the supplement or the dosage could be wrong.
There are outcomming reports of liver/pancreas problems with taking Depakote, which valproic acid. Deaths from liver toxicity have been reported.
Now as for Zyprexa's problems, I could help you withdrawal from that drug if that is what is your concern as the "problem"
