I am now taking depakote er 500mg in the day time and 500mg at bed time.Total dose is now 1000mg.I was on 500mg for the last 10 months.1000mg daily controls my aggression a lot.I am only worried about the intestinal damage issues.Is there anyone who is feeling well on depakote er for long time? I used to take Lithium SR 800mg before that but it didn't work.How do you consider the valproate in terms of safety?
I was on 1500 mg of depakote for 10 yrs.(for epilepsy),w/no ill side effects,as well as 800 mg of carbamazapine.I now take 1000 mg of depakote,only because my neurologist reduced it due to my well improved seizure control.I have had no gastrointestinal problems whatsoever w/this combination.
Yours in better health,
