I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder early 2003 .My dose was 1500mg twice daily and approx 6 months ago I started to wean myself off ,I am and have been noticing changes in behavior now that I am off as a result as of 12/23/13 I started taking depakote er again starting with 500mg should I go back to 3000 mg per day.
that's a question for your doc to anwser, because I'm not sure if you should have started back at 500mgs doc may have started you lower dose, and not sure if you should jump from 500mgs all the way back up to 1500mgs. I think your best bet is to contact your doc and tell he/she what you have done, and let the doc handle your med dose. good luck. Bamboos,
