Depakote for Anxiety Instead Of Benzos????

Posted by Phillipa on March 23, 2009, at 15:42:55

Just got valium filled and was talking with pharmacist about how the benzos no longer work and he said he had a patient he asked why are getting depakote? The patient said it's for my anxiety. Pharmacist asked me knew what depakote was. Said yes mood stabalizer. He said for bipolar. But for some reason it works for anxiety with this man older as on heart meds also and BP meds. I've never heard of depakote for anxiety? What other meds can take the place of a benzo. He'd also said up the doses but can't do that as pdoc wouldn't allow that. And no antipsychotics I passed out on low dose seroquel once in hospital and docs took me right off it? I guess rest of life for me will be just keeping me away from withdrawal. Any comments welcome. Love Phillipa
