is there anyone taking depakote having dirrhea
I was just researching this same question, my son started Depakote, in December and the last week he has had diarrhea, and he has never had diarrhea since he was a newborn, he actually has always had problems.
It's unfortunate that no one who has used Depakote has responded. Diarrhea is a common side effect of Depakote.
None of the reviews in this site mention anything about diarrhea ... but as it is known to be a common side effect I'm sure a lot of patients on Depakote experience it.
Just started taking 500 mg. Of Depakote in min January, what seems like a few days into the new med, I have been recently battling the embarrassing, sudden onset , out of the blue with horrible, horrible, diarrhea !! When I have to go... I HAVE TO GO !!! Its Awful , I cant make it through the day without a mess. I thought it would subside. Now I'm into Mar and can't take it anymore, called my Dr. going back to see what she says.
