A BIG welcome to the board.
My wife has BP and currently takes this med. It does work for her. However, it has caused issues with weight.
God Bless

I take Depakote and I haven't had any bad reactions. I have noticed that I am gaining weight too, but I get a lot of exercise. I might have to go on a diet. One of the things that bothers me though is dizziness and headaches. It got a lot less severe after a while though. Good luck.
