Hi Mitch!

>1) My current pdoc won't go for it, 2) I've had some spooky skin reactions and allergies the last few years, and 3) Depakote already causes tremor with the low dose I'm taking now.. and I've heard that Lam tends to cause backaches and body aches, something that the Depakote seems to make worse for me also.

OK! What caused the skin reactions and allergies?


I think it's definitely worth trying. Perhaps you could try the controlled release, I remember reading that it's supposed to be less likely to cause nausea.


Hopefully it would work as well as Trileptal without making you feel sick! It can be difficult to get the dose right, lots of blood tests at first- that might remind you of lithium. Plaque control is the most important thing you can do to reduce the risk of gingival hyperplasia- lots of trips to the dentist I'm afraid :-(

Best regards,
