Has anyone dealt with getting ringing in the ears with depakote? I already have tinnitus and afraid the medication will make it worse. It’s 250 er. Supposed to help with a few issues I have.
Depakote & tinnitus anyone?

About 1~10% of users may experience tinnitus which usually subsides over a few days to a week or two but it can also become permanent.
Depending on what the medication is prescribed for you might want to discuss with your doctor other options that are less apt to cause this side effect.
PS, I took Depakote for years with no problems but everyone may respond differently.
