Hi Patti,

I was on Depakote for a few years. It really helped with mood swings. It made me sleepy when I first started taking it, but after the adjustment period was over, it got better.

I did however, gain a lot of weight taking it. My dr. never told me that the drug
would make me crave carbs...So, now that you know, you can be careful. I craved sugar a lot. Hope this helps you..

Best Wishes,
