I have been on Depakote for two years for bipolar disorder. My question is what happens if I miss a dose? I know that you can go into a seizure even if you've never had one but that is the extreme. What are the other side effects? I didn't take my medicine last night and I feel HORRIBLE today. I am wondering if that is what it is from. I am shaky, I feel tired, I feel sick to my stomach, and my mind feels like its racing and depressed.
