i want to get off depakote
I've been on Depakote ER 1,000mg (500mg x 2) a day for a little over 2 months, and I really want to get off from the med. It's making me really tired, making me take several naps a day everyday. I'm currently unemployed due to things I did while I was manic *sigh*, but want to get back to the society and work. I just went to an intake appt at a new hospital ( I didn't like the previous one), but my official appointment with my Dr is not until next month.... Ughhhh

I'm thinking of taking 500mg a day and see how my body can handle it? Cold turkey sounds a bit scary to me, but because I haven't been on this med for too long, I might be able to?

If you have any experience with weaning off from Depakote please share :)
