I took Depakote for about 6 months. It worked fairly well for me once they found the right level and AD to go with it. Not perfect, but some relief. Only side effect that it gave me was a bad tremor in my arm, but other than that I'd say it was worth it. Just make sure that they draw some blood from time to time to check your levels and liver function. Oh yeah, and watch the alcohol intake with it, made for some nasty crashes with me.

Really hoping that this will bring you some relief.

Off to stick my head back in the sand,
