Going back on Depakote ER

I saw my pdoc today and I told her that I am having Mixed Episodes, she agreed to prescribe Depakote for me, but this time at a very low dose - 500 mg.

It messed my liver enzymes, but I was on a very high dose of 2200 mg - she said that since my liver is doing much better now, we can try going back on it at a low dose - as long as I get my liver checked like every 3 months or so.

I am personally very happy about this because Depakote was a very effective mood stabilizer for me.

I will see how it goes :slight_smile:
