Depakote vs lithium


#1

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?


#2

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


#3

Does it give you fatigue?


#4

At first it did but not anymore.


#5

How long did the fatigue take to go away ?


#6

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