has anyone had major depression and cronic anxiety in the past and then later got a bipolar diagnosis and tried sodium valprate. iv stopped having manic moments and only been on it for a few months so im not sure if the cycles will be stopped of the cronic lows but am finding after a day low i rebound better on valprate now 600mg morn and night, but because of life circumstances im low anyhow , could anyone share their experiences with this med and side effects ect.i feel iv lost my spark but im not getting quite low enough to die.i know first thing is to stay alive but can going up make you feel better or can it weigh the other way and you get depressed.not taking anti depressants ,have tried all of them in the past witgh mioxed response but no real good outcome.please any comments, and thanks to those who have helped me keep going.
