Re: when does the tiredness go away on depakote xr 1000 mgs a day?
I have been on four different seizure meds and I think Depakote hit me the hardest when I started it. I was also on 500am and 500pm. For the first 3 weeks I was staggering when I walked. I even drooled!! At work there was a little cot in the woman's restroom and I would go rest and fall asleep in a few minutes!!! People would have to wake me! BUT!!!!!....When I did adjust to the medication (about a month) it was great for me. I had no headaches, no seizures and was not dizzy at all. Unfortunately, it bothered my liver and I had to change to a different medication after 9 months.
