Has Anyone Ever Been Prescribed Depakote For Migraines

Has Anyone Ever Been Prescribed Depakote For Migraines

Hello all. I am new to this page and newly diagnosised with migraines. My neurologist has tried me on a couple of different medications with none working so far. Topamax made me lose weight and cymbalta makes me sick. Neurologist said next thing to try is Depakote. Was wondering if anyone has had any success on this medication. Thank you in advance.

Topamax works well with me as long as I take it before the headache substantially takes hold

Be careful with the depakote....I suffer from depression and anxiety so when I tried it, it sent me over the edge with horrible anxiety! I thought my stomach might just crawl out of my mouth! It was horrible!! Be careful.

I have been on Depakote. It worked a little, but after gaining 55 lbs. I asked to be taken off of it.
