MY DR Agreed to start depakote..125mg once a day at night. She really wanted lithium but I said no not yet. I am cyclothymic (she thinks) All the SSRI meds made me even more mean. I am on a very small amount of Cymbalta but still snapping.
I would really appreciate any info on Depakote. How will it work with Cymbalta? Is weight gain dose related?? I have already gained 10lbs back I lost after Pristiq...which my the way was my wonder drug aside from weight gain and some fatigue then it pooped out GRRRR!! What can I expect from this med?
My Dr said because I am 5'7 and 134lbs I can not take Topamax...due to weight loss????? Is she trying to make me Fatter as I would love to get back in my old clothes! How do the 2 meds differ....

I really appreciate your input...
