What is the average dose in which people start noticing this severe weight gain? I've been on Topamax with no relief and every side effect in the book and am trying Depakote now but am worried about the weight gain. I've noticed I've already gained about 15-20 lbs in the past 6-8 months.
HI ADDY709 ,
Even the smallest amount of depakote will cause weight gain. My sister was put on depakote when she was a teenage ... her average weight is 124 lbs
..she is 5'3" ... she was up to 180 give or take ... as soon as she went off depakote she dropped the weight. It's a very common side.effect. I hope you start to feel better. I will keep.you in my.thoughts and prayers.
