My son was prescribed depakote for seizure prevention in a court ordered drug rehab. He's never had a seizure, but was apparently at risk because of the drugs he was using prior to medical detox. He's been in for 9 months now and he's been taking 500 mg a.m. & p.m. per day. He is coming out at the end of April and I was wondering how he should be weaned off of it. I'd prefer for them to start now so that he doesn't have problems in the interim between getting out and seeing a doctor. Please advise. Thanks!
