My husband is freaking out about the Depakote and I wanted to get your experiences good and bad about it. I took Depakote for 16 years and had little to no issues. I was 11 yrs old when I started. I know that each of these medications have harsh side effects and are pretty scary. Someone we know was talking to husband about Depakote and scare him. I though if I could read about people's experiences both sides, it might help him a bit. Thank you so much for your input!
