Valproic acid was first synthesized in 1882 by Beverly S. Burton as an analogue of valeric acid , found naturally in valerian . [66] Valproic acid is a carboxylic acid , a clear liquid at room temperature. For many decades, its only use was in laboratories as a "metabolically inert" solvent for organic compounds. In 1962, the French researcher Pierre Eymard serendipitously discovered the anticonvulsant properties of valproic acid while using it as a vehicle for a number of other compounds that were being screened for antiseizure activity. He found it prevented pentylenetetrazol -induced convulsions in laboratory rats . [67] It was approved as an antiepileptic drug in 1967 in France and has become the most widely prescribed antiepileptic drug worldwide. [68] Valproic acid has also been used for migraine prophylaxis and bipolar disorder. [69]

The mean oral bioavailability of finasteride is approximately 65%. [1] Its volume of distribution is 76 L/kg. [1] The plasma protein binding of finasteride is 90%. [1] The drug has been found to cross the blood–brain barrier , whereas levels in semen were found to be undetectable. [1] Finasteride is extensively metabolized in the liver , first by hydroxylation via CYP3A4 and then by aldehyde dehydrogenase . [1] The metabolites of finasteride have about 20% of its potency in inhibiting 5α-reductase and hence its metabolites are not particularly active. [1] The drug has a terminal half-life of 5 to 6 hours in adult men (18–60 years of age) and a terminal half-life of 8 hours or more in elderly men (greater than 70 years of age). [1] It is eliminated as its metabolites 57% in the feces and 40% in the urine . [1]
