Hello, no Depakote Sprinkles are non-addictive and their name or category is the following: Anticonvulsant, Chemical Class of Carboxylic acid derivative. Simply the function of Depakote, when used for seizure prevention and control, increases level of y-aminobutyric acid, AKA (GABA), in the brain, which is thought to reduce seizure activity. It is also used in Psychiatry for mood disorder, to stabilize the erratic nature of the mood disorder illness. Further it helps with anxiety because it is also known as a sodium channel blocker which works stabilizing the chemicals inside and outside the cells, lessening the perception of anxiety and provides some persons with relief. Hope that this helped, my sources were my Mosby nursing drug guide and personal experience working with and adjusting these medications. Best wishes.
