Yeah, someone else suggested anxiety as well. I do tend to get really anxious before starting a new medication. (Obsessively so at times, but not quite as bad as what you seem to go through.) Anyway, maybe that's a part of it.

No sedation yet. But a little bit of that warm fuzzy feeling. Hopefully this med sticks... I'm tired of cycling through all the various options. Especially given my insurance's ridiculously low prescription cap.

Thanks for the input,

> BUT Depakote, um... no I don't recall those symptoms (other than the first time becuase of my anxiety). I do recall feeling a bit tired on it at tiems/sedated but nothing too bad. I also did say, like Ritch mentioned, it made my brain feel all warm and fuzzy. LOL
