Does higher dose of depakote give more anxiety relief?

I’m on 1000mg and it has kind of lost its effectiveness based on blood test.
I’m just wondering if I could treat my anxiety better with higher depakote dose rather than treat it with klonopin or teas.

Depakote is an anticonvulsant mood stabilizer but it’s also a potent anti anxiety medication.
You can ask your doctor to go go on a higher dose but Depakote is hard on your liver, so lower tolerable doses are recommended.

I’m currently on 1000mg of Depakote ER

Do you take it in the morning or before bed?
Maybe I could switch taking it in the morning since it doesnt make me sleepy.


I take 500mg in the morning with my other meds, and then I take another 500mg before bedtime.

I take both doses with my other meds.
