I am also on depakote as well. I is not causing hair loss but I think it is cause my facial hair growth to slow down. I don't need to shave as often as other guys
. I do believe Depakote is causing me to to gain weight. Did depakote cause you to gain weight by increasing your hunger. I believe that may have been how it happened to me. Plus there is the fact that I started depakote just as I started puberty.
