What a *relief* to hear from someone with such similar reactions to the same meds! I have thought about trying Serzone, but not yet. Am on EffexorXR as AD. Also take Klonopin, but have been on it a long time - does NOTHING to help me sleep.
I have indeed made the switch to Depakote. Taking the ER (time release, once-a-day) version. I take it in the evening. Started at 500 mg/night and nothing - no major side effects, which was nice, a bit calming but very subtle. Just went up to 1000 mg tonight. So it's too early in the game to be able to tell you if Depakote is working for me or not!
Thanks for your interest.
