Re: need answers PLEASE
Betty, Remember, when on Poly, the Depakote needs to be increased into the two thousand range usually (1000-3000 on poly it says for a quick and dirty reference). Other meds cause Depa (usually) to drop, so we (the patient) need to have our levels bumped up.
Not being on Depa and Z at the same time I can't help there. My main worry is the weight issue the two drugs cause. They are opposing directions (oil and water at the same time).
Zonegran is within the range for dose. 400/day is the run of the mill dose. Thats what they wanted to bring me up to for starting, titrating up at 100mg/week. I never reached it due to the problem of weight loss.
Good luck on resolving it start of this week.
