I have recently been taken off of Depakote and I have had more difficulty with emotion control. I had to go off the Depakote due to liver enzymes elevated. The Depakote was for migraines, despite not having migraines I still have low grade but consistent and annoying headaches. My doctor just initiated nortriptyline today.
nortriptyline is a TCA(Tricylic antidepressant) short answer is yes, it is a mood stabilizer. How well it works depends on you and dosage of course. TCAs are also use in migraine prevention so it might help with those low grade migraines. One last little nugget, TCAs can help with sleep as well so take it at bedtime and you might sleep better. :)
