Ask your pdoc, but I'd try the Serzone first, if you're worried about orgasm and other side effects. In addition to having no effect on sexual performance, it is weight neutral. It may slow metabolism some, but it causes weight gain in very few people.

I know Depakote packs on the pounds and may contribute to a little brain fog. I have a few friends on it.

Another tip: I, too, had racing thoughts at night. That was originally part of the problem. I take the Serzone at bedtime, which helps with sleep, but I'm usually out like a light before the meds do their work, as it's already built up and steady in my system, day and night. So the racing thoughts don't happen.

Still, early morning awakenings sometimes cause those racing thoughts. Otherwise, though, I'm pretty calm and thinking of nothing for hours and hours until morning!

(For additional nighttime anxiety, though, you can take any benzos except Klonopin and Xanax, I think. At least Ativan seems to be okay.)
