Re: Side Effects to High Dosage of Depakote

I know that depakote can cause pancreatitis and shaking and nausea COULD BE early signs of that.I would talk to your doctor about this as soon as possible and get some blood work done.

I wish you luck ... can you let us know how you are doing and what your doctor says? I'm concerned about you.


> I've had seizures for the past 10 years and my doctor now has me on 3500mg of Depakote and 200 mg of Dilantin a day. I know the dosage amount is based on your weight but I only weigh about 140 pounds and my seizures only occur maybe once a month or so. Now that I'm on this high dosage of meds, I average maybe 3 hours of sleep a night, my hands shake uncontrollably, memory loss, hair loss, and nausea. I have taken all the other seizure meds and nothing else seems to work. Has anyone ever had this high of a dosage or any information that could be helpful to me. I would really appreciate it.
