911Doctor :

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,

911Doctor :

you take the depakene for seizures?

911Doctor :

or for something else?

911Doctor :

do you smoke?

911Doctor :

and why would you think the depakene has anything to do with your pneumonia? did someone say that to you?

911Doctor :

standing by.

Customer:

epilpsy,not smoker

911Doctor :

okay,

911Doctor :

I see no reason whatsoever to think this has anything to do with your depakene.... I just read the whole side effect list and respiratory problems is not on there....

911Doctor :

by no means should you change your seizure medicine.

911Doctor :

people do simply get pneumonia.... however you got it, it was not from the depakene.

911Doctor :

standing by.
