Peanut has been on Depakote for about 2 months. Two weeks ago his psychiatrist increased it from 500mg(250mg am & pm) to 750mg in pm only. I have noticed that about 1 1/2 hours after taking his pills he is starving. We eat at 5:30pm and bedtime is at 8:00. He takes his pills at dinner. He also is extremely affectionate and spits alot. Is this normal? He wasn't so clingy before and I could hardly get him to eat before they increased his medications. Should I be concerned? He had a fasting blood draw four days after the increase of depakote. His level was 95.
