... this normal?
Yes, Depakote is prescribed for depression and GAD,as well as seizure disorders. In fact,even though Depakote is known as an anti seizure medication,it is prescribed frequently for depression. I was on it for several years @ 500 mg a day. I had weight gain though so went to Wellbutrin instead.Hope you find that it works well for you,when accompanied by an antidepressant.
Thank you all for your advice. I'm taking it with Abilify and it seems effective. I'm switching from taking 4mg Xanax a day for the past 10+ yrs and it has been no picnic but I want to do this right and not just bury my problem with benzos. I already feel better after 2 weeks so anyone that feels like they are stuck in a hopeless cycle of increased anxiety caused by the drugs and the drug is the only relief, I'm here to tell you its not nearly as bad as you might imagine. If I can do it, anyone can. Trust me.
