Re: Depakote/Lithium +Weight gain + Cognitive Func Heart~

In reply to Depakote/Lithium +Weight gain + Cognitive Funct., posted by Heart~ on September 18, 2006, at 17:15:44

I've read in the past (sorry i don't
provide references now), that depakote
increases weight more than lithium
does. But lithium has to be in the right
range. Depakote may be safer in this
respect and easier to prescribe. Depakote
effects the liver, lithium the the thyroid.
Depakote is in the anti-convulsant class.
I prefer lithium for the remarkable clarity
of the mental state it provides (in the right
range).
