V58.83 - Can I use V58.83 for:

  1. Default V58.83 - Can I use V58.83 for:
    Medical Coding Books
    Can I use V58.83 for:
    Dilantin 80185
    Vancomycin 80202
    Valproic acid ( depakote) 80164
    Carbamezapine (tegratol) 80156
    OR any drug used?
    My company doesn't use more than one diagnosis. Perhaps we are going to have to add the secondary diagnosis codes?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Yes you may use that code it is appropriate, but it needs a secondary code from the V58.6 category to specify the drug.
