My daughter began using depakote in Feburary on a slowly increasing dose until she reached a maximum dosage of 2000 mg per day. The side effects are disasterious - blurred vision, hearing loss, confusion, dizzyness, almost everything llisted (Doctor turned a blind eye and said give it time, they will wear off) they have not. We are seeing a new physician, now she is in Renal Failure - has this ever been reported as a side effect of Depakote?
Depakote should not be given to anyone with kidney issues but as far as I can research Renal Failure is usually only in overdoses for a long period of time if no other kidney issues were present before the administration of the Valproic Acid (Depakote). Good luck and I will be praying for your daughter, marjorie zych
