I am on DEPAKOTE to control my mania/depression. I assume that I am bipolar though my psychiatrist hasn't used the word. For the last two months I have been suffering with pain in my stomach,( I use the word stomach although the pain is lower than that, more Colon area). This pain has also moved to my back. Could it be caused by my use of Depakote. I have been referred for a ultrasound scan.
