By all means, YES. It is still important that you are not damaging you liver! The only catch is your pdoc doesn't have a "normal" baseline to compare. If your pdoc didn't mention blood tests for liver function and dose management -- SHAME ON HIM(or her)!! Insist on it.
> my pdoc never mentioned liver tests, and I started Depakote a week ago (last friday). Would it still be useful to get even though I didn't have a test done before starting Depakote?
