My brother has been diagnosed with one and then the other and is being treated with Depakote in an Alcohol Treatment Center. Is Depakote appropriate? Are their other meds to suggest?
Every medication is actually adictive. Your mind or body is depending on it. I think Depakote is great. I dont think its great the times I tried going off of it. Before taking Depakote the doctors always treat people like ginny pigs. There were alot of different doctors that tried alot of different medications. This seems to work for ME. Its a long process but something will work for him. Then I also have ADHD and have been on several medications for that. Again.. there's really no best answer because everyone is different.If he is in treatment then it's going to be hard. The addictive personality makes it worst. Hope this was helpful.
