difficult child just called- he's on 1000mg/per day depakote er. He wants to put in a medication slip to see psychiatrist and get it switched because he says it's making him impulsive and agitated. I told him he'd trialed it when he wasa younger it didn't work well so it was pulled by his psychiatrist then. Honestly, he acts and sounds like he's stoned when on it. He asked if it was safe to stop taking it altogether while he's waiting to see a psychiatrist. He said it wasn't one where they had to titrate him up to that dosage and I couldn't remember but I told him if it wasn't titrated up, it would probably be ok to stop it all at once. He made it sound likes it's one pill per day so he'd have no choice. He's very stressed right now with all the koi going on so the last thing he needs is a medication monkeying with his moods and ability to maintain. Did I tell him right?
