Hi, Claudia! Depakote is usually taken in divided doses, morning and evening, but the dosage depends on your weight and the results of blood tests to determine if your blood level is within the therapeutic range. The maximum recommended dosage is 60 mg/kg/day.
If in doubt about your dosage you would need to speak with your doctor.
Best regards, Wildcat
