> I started Depakote ER at 250 mg last night. I'm not finding it really that sedating. A little bit of GI distress, but my understanding is that's likely to be transient.
> The wierd thing is that I feel like my core temperature was way up during the day today (although I haven't had access to a thermometer). I've also been having some dry mouth and my palms have been sweating quite a bit. Both started getting better toward dinner time just in time for my next dose.
> Weird. I mean, I've heard all about the stomach, weight, and hair issues. But sweaty palms (and a dry mouth) is a bit unexpected. Anyone else get this from Depakote?

I never got sweaty palms and dry mouth on Depakote, but I can say that it can cause an internal "warmth" feeling-- I think Spriggy called it having your brain in a warm bath-- it's kind of difficult to describe. I usually only notice it on a dose increase and then that fades. SSRI's can raise sensation of temperature too and cause sweating, WB made my feet sweat which was a weird thing. Maybe it's another med that you are taking?
