Depakote
Pronounced: DEP-uh-coat
Generic name: Divalproex sodium (Valproic acid)

Important fact about this drug:

Depakote can cause serious or even fatal liver damage, especially during the first 6 months of treatment. Children under 2 years of age are the most vulnerable, especially if they are also taking other anticonvulsant medicines and have certain other disorders such as mental retardation. The risk of liver damage decreases with age; but you should always be alert for the following symptoms: loss of seizure control, weakness, dizziness, drowsiness, a general feeling of ill health, facial swelling, loss of appetite, vomiting, and yellowing of the skin and eyes. If you suspect a liver problem, call your doctor immediately.

Depakote has also been known to cause life-threatening damage to the pancreas. This problem can surface at any time, even after years of treatment. Call your doctor immediately if you develop any of the following warning signs: abdominal pain, loss of appetite, nausea, or vomiting.

Hi,I was on Valproic Acid since 2000,I quit taking it this past spring COLD Turkey.I was on it for anxiety and panic disorder.After stopping it,my anxiety got very bad,so the Dr. put me back on it last month 250 mg. once a day.He told me to up it to three a day. And then he will do a test to check the blood level. I dont know if its my anxiety but after just taking the one extra today,my lips are numb my dizziness is worse, and at one time years ago I know i took 4 250 mg pills a day with my xanax and prozac. Now Im just on the xanax(which i would love to be off) and the Valporic acid. I alos drank with these meds for 3 years.i never knew i was not suppose to.Can any one advise me on these meds,how to get off them and get over this anxiety/
