... pretty depressed within 2 days of being on it but the psychiatrist requested thate we give it no less than 4 days. We have not been on it for about 10 days and he is severely nauseated, breathing difficulties and some other side effects. Are these supposed to go away with time? Does anyone else have any knowledge with this med for a teenager?
I've been on Depakote 1000 mg for 1 yr. I am 54 yrs old It has helped me with my depression,and mood swings but I do have side effects from it that bother me. My hands and legs shake like I have Parkinsons. My ankles and feet are swollen as well as my face.I have gained weight on it also. I take my full dose in the morning.I think I should change to something else though because of the shakiness and swollen ankles.Oh and last but not least I have no memory,its awful.
