Depakene (valproic acid) for Bipolar Disorder: Appreciated what this medicine has done for me. I'm on a pretty high dose and haven't experienced any of the symptoms of nausea or anything like that except right in the very beginning and that quickly wore off.

Depakene (valproic acid) for Bipolar Disorder: My Doctor prescribed me this medication and on the first night I took it I had bad nausea. I told my doctor about it and decided to give it another chance a few days later. The second time it caused nausea, heartburn and left an acid feel in my mouth so I don't know if it works for other people but the side effects weren't worth it.

Depakene (valproic acid) for Seizure Prevention: The side effects of this drug were so harsh I didn't stick around for its alleged benefits, i.e. seizure prevention.
