My boyfriend has been taking Depakote for about the last five years and has gained 100 lbs. I, too, am concerned about the adverse affect it has had on his weight. He has unhealthy eating habits (fast food, etc), but also has trouble controling his appetite because of his medication. He takes 4 250 mg pills per day to control his seizures. I would suggest that you try not to let the weight gain get out of control because a few pounds here and there can add up quickly.
