In Reply to: Depakote - how much and when posted by kerri on July 27, 2000 at 15:01:14:
: I have generalized seizures and started taking depakote on June 12th. I take 250mg 3x a day at 9am, 3pm and 10pm. It's been over a month now and I dont' feel the depakote is working. If your on depakote how much do you take and do they times I'm taking it at sound right? Thanks. I don't have another appt. with my doctor until 8/28.
I have taken Depakote for years now. The normal dosage is 250 mg. 3 x day but, many people take twice that much. I personally only take 250 mg. 2 x day. When I took it 3 x a day I took it at
7 ~ 3 ~ 10.
Watch for weight gain, and the suprise I got was my hair started falling out!! But, it has grown back thicker and with curl in it! I now have cute short curly hair. :-)
