and quite frankly I haven't seen any big changes. She is easier to wake in the AM and the extreme hunger is going down also. She still is in the refrigerator a lot, but it is just a habit. We were at 500mg XR and are down to 125mg. We stay on this dose for about 12 more days and then we are done. She takes 4 mg of Abilify. I realize we are not out of the woods yet, but just out of curiousity, has anyone else seen no major changes after coming off Depakote? We went to the allergist on Tuesday and she was diagnosed with mild asthma. She is doing great with just the flexhaler in the AM and PM and her coughing is going away. Anxious to get the results back from the blood draw to see if what other allergies are in her system. Hoping this could be an easy piece to the puzzle of my difficult child. Have a great weekend with no meltdowns.
