Just curious what your difficult child's are like if their Depakote is too high? difficult child 2 was at 1000mg for a few weeks and except for seeming to be a little flat and a little slower at expressing himself, was doing great. No rages, no meltdowns, and the stimulant seemed to be working better for him as well. His valproaic acid came back at 140, so psychiatrist said to drop him down to 750mg... but I'm wondering if there's a middle ground, because now I see a little more of that emotional lability creeping back in, and the stims are making him jittery again and not working as well. Is there a 125mg tablet of the Depakote ER? I just feel like someplace between 750 and 1000 would be better.
