          Pliva 468

          I know that the pliva 468 is a migraine medication, I take it for my migrains. As for the other two I am not sure, sorry. Hope that helps a little.

            That's interesting. I'm on basically the same formula. I'm by no means a doctor, but the combination being use (assuming those are the only medications) are likely as follows (i only guess this because I'm on the same stuff).

            1. The METHIMAZOLE is often used for bipolar disorder or depression. It is likely being used to stabilize moods. ( I was on this, but I am on a different med now in the same family.)

            2. The depakote is used as an anti-seizure medication. I know that when that some of medications like METHIMOZOLE will lower your seizure threshold. So it may not indicate epilepsy but is likely used to prevent seizures that could be instigated by the other medication.

            3. The Propranolol is used for many things. In my case and likely your daughter's, it is used to treat tremor symptoms. The medications above in my case anyways caused horrible tremors. Holding my hand steady became impossible. I was put on this (along with mirapex which i find much more successful) to alleviate this side-effect.

            Again I'm not a doctor, but that combination is what I'm now (expect the Methimazole (on something different now)). And those are the reasons for which i take them. I can only hypothesize that with your daughter it is for similar reasons. I'm not sure why they would have been hidden, or how she would have gotten them but i can be fairly confident that there is no reason to take them other than to treat actual problems.

            That's my 2-cents. Take it or leave it.
