Hi McPac,
Forgive me if you've already told about your history with meds, but i'm curious why are you asking about Depakote?
I just recently started it and have had an atypical reaction to it. I've gotten racy and speeded up, trouble sleeping (I now need sleep meds). I alternate b/t this state and depressed. I just talked to my pdoc and he said, that actually he has seen this in a few other BP people, which is even more confirming for my dx of BP. He said there are one of two things going on: one, the dose is too low and once we get it high enough it'll even out things or two: I'm having a bad reaction to Depakote and up the dose to see if I get speedier or better. If I get worse as the dose titrates up, then we ditch Depakote and try another.
What's been your experience with Depakote?
