I was just perscribed this... I had a 3 level ( C3-C4 C4-C5 C5-C6 ) decompresive lamanectomy Spinal Stenosis 6/09... missed something on 2nd MRI... C7 is pinching off nerves left neck arms affecting whole body... I'm already on suboxone... helps every where else except left arm & neck can get to a 10... Lyraca & Gapapentain (suffering with edema since) didn't agree with me... so we are trying Divalproex Sodium. now I'm going to have a second operation ACDF... but until then... How is this med going to work on the nerves... I'm 40yrs old
Not familiar with depakote (divalproex) being used for nerve pain but since you tried lyrica and gabapentin then I see the logic in the decision. You may have a few side effects like getting the shakes and increased appetite (not everyone gets these), but I would give it a try. Is the suboxone helping?
BTW, you are 40, you are young, lol.
