Default Depakote?

I'm inquiring as if anybody has been on this medication. I've read something one this medication that it's used to treat Bi-Polar, which I've been told I don't have. So, if anybody has any informations about this drug, I would sincerely appreciate it, since it's making my head so in the "fog" I can't even think straight. Thank you.

Blessings!

Default I have been on Depekote

Depekote is a drug that they use to control bipolar or other mood disorders. It is a mood stabilizer....just as lamictal and lithium. In the beginning it has a calming effect. may make u a bit tired, but that goes away. most doctors pair this medicine with an anti- depressant. I hope this helps....

Yes it help, but all my "motor skills" are being effected as well. The tiredness part, you're right, I'm always tired after taking it, but I don't "feel" better. Thank you for your reply, it does help!

Blessings!

Default I tried it

a few years ago, but I had to stop. It just made me sleep all day and I don't need any help in the sleep department.

Best wishes.

Default Depekote

how long have you been using this med? Are you taking something else? Did your doctor tell you that you should give blood to check the Depekote levels in your blood to see if it is at theraputic levels and that its not harming your liver......

I've been on it for almost 1 week & yes, I take about 7 other drugs also. For the blood check, no, they never did any. All it's doing is MAJORLY effecting my motor-skills & they're getting worse. I'm just running out of options, because my medical bills are so far behind, even my PCP wont see me until the bills paid up......

Blessings!

Oh, BTW this medication is starting to make me sick, diarrah, & it's like being totally drunk, without drinking.....weird. My head is in a fog & it's getting worse, so oh well......I guess I gotta keep taking it, they told me yesterday DON'T just stop, they said they're goingt to run some blood test, but hey, at least I'm NOT getting any sleep any more! LOL

Blessings!
