I was recently prescribed on a Thursday 1000mg of Depakote daily. On Monday I was violently ill and went to the ER and they diagnosed me with acute pancreatitis. The ER i went to discharged me but did not tell me to stop taking the medicine. My psychiatrist told me the very next morning to continue on the Depakote. That afternoon I became violently ill again and was rushed to a different ER and admitted for four days with chemically induced acute pancreatitis. My levels of lipase and analase(sp?) quadrupled. I have been recently released, however I am still having severe pain in the area of my pancreas and nausea.(thank god for Zofran) Any ideas or thoughts? - I'm looking for help-
thanks
