Coming off Depakote
Currently taking 400mg split 200 in morning 200 mid-day: Bupropion(wellbutrin), 250mg Depakote 1x per day, diazapam 10mg 2-3times a day as needed, for PTSD, BP, Mood Disorder (NOS), Major Depression. Yes I definately see a Psychiatrist and Psychologist once a month. I also suffer from back pain (tramadol, tyelonol extra strength, diclofenac NA50mg.  
My husband and I would like to have a child. No we are not crazy. Given recent studies, I will request to stop taking the Depakote. I cannot take Lamictal (rash), symptoms not good. The current regimen of psych meds are of course used to treat each disorder. Any feedback?  Personally I would like to come off all meds but that would be catastrophic.

  The best thing to do would be to ask your doctor and psychiatrist about what medications can be safely taken during pregnancy and what are potential alternatives. The information would be listed on the medication websites and P.D.R. (Physician's Desk Reference) which you could then discuss with your doctor and psychiatrist who would have a physician's only database with full information.
