Depakote vs lithium


I have a few questions: does depakote cause less fatigue than lithium? Can depakote be taken all at night? Does depakote have to be taken after a meal?


I take Depakote. I take it all at night at dinnertime although it can be taken without food as well.


Does it give you fatigue?


At first it did but not anymore.


How long did the fatigue take to go away ?


Sorry, I don’t remember exactly. I started taking it 8 years ago. Maybe 6 months or so.
