Hey Jeff...thanx man...and right back too ya! I can't say if using Depakote is *the* answer to all...maybe I pushed it too much in my last post. I just thought you might give it a shot. You may be able to take the lower doses in the day, and a bit of a higher dose at bedtime. Plus, I've read smaller doses of Depakote have been found to be just as good as larger ones in use in psychiatry.

I don't know if you could try boosting your dose of your antipsychotic also, and I'd really suggest try adding clonazepam if your pdoc is for it. (And if not...try to talk to them about it.)

Ya, I'd love to go out for a coffee with you..well we can have 'virtual' coffee...heh.

Let me know what you think bud..
