I guess we messed up the timing of difficult child 2's last blood draw -- had it done late in the day instead of in the morning, and his valproic acid levels came back at 140, which is why the psychiatrist lowered the Depakote back down to 750mg. After about a week at the lower level, meltdowns started creeping back into the picture and difficult child was a lot more anxious than before. So now, it's back up to 1000mg and a morning blood draw next week -- fingers crossed we get a good number this time. We're also splitting the dose to 250mg a.m. and 750mg p.m. to see if that helps the bedwetting that started at the higher level. Although... I still think he needs to be somewhere between the two dosages because last time at 1000mg, he started to seem flat and his thinking was slower. Any chance this symptom goes away with time? Or will the split dose help with that as well? Trying to be patient with this process!
