Re: Manic Episode
I would contact your pdoc (psychiatrist) so your symptoms don't get worse. It's not uncommon for people to experience agitation, shopping/gambling sprees and reckless behavior during a manic episode -- as well as depression once the mania has passed. I would also pay attention to your specific manic symptoms (writing them down would be a good idea) so that you'll know what to expect the next time you have a manic episode. Your pdoc may decide to increase your Depakote to address your current mania and control future symptoms.
By the way, I'm also on Depakote. I take 500mg three times/day.
