Exclamation Difference Between These Medications???

What's the difference between Depakote ER and regular Depakote?I'm weaning my body off of it and I have been taking the extended release for about 5 months,but I have the lowest dosage in regular form.I just want to make sure nothing negative will happen when I start taking the regular dosage.

ER means extended release, so the med is released every so often.

Instead of the whole dose hitting you at once, it is time released so that it theoretically will treat your symptoms for a longer duration of time.
