I did not have this swelling after eating a saltier meal than usual until I started taking the depakote 3 days ago.
Yes Depakote ER can cause bloating or swelling of the face, arms, hands, lower legs, or feet. I am noticing it with my feet and ankles. I don't know where I can cut any salt out of my diet though as I don't use salt and do not add any when cooking either. Apparently this is quite common.

Hope that helps
