This makes you really not care at all. I mentioned to my Psych, MD that I would take a few extra any time I knew I was going to be under stress or in an irritating environment self medicating. He switched me to Latuda and I have been going down on this. I feel 10X more alive no more drooling no more numb emotions I actually feel like myself

Have been on Depakote oral dose for over 25yrs. Now take750mg.at bedtime. I'd like to know if anyone has had elevated ammonia levels from this med. Have to take lactulose 2xweek to evacuate ammonia in stool.....not pleasant. This rx. is working. Unable to reduce Depakote level without feeling "on edge". Also, hand tremor is quite noticeable. Any suggestions to bring down ammonia ... Show Full Comment
