IF you take depakote

How much do you take and do you take any other med?
Are you on reg depakote(Tripp is) or are you on Depakote ER
Do you think the ER is better than the reg...and can one change from reg to ER for better control. Would you need to take less of the ER and do you take ER Depakote twice of once daily.

We just are now increasing Tripp's depakote to 1000mg twice daily and are going down on Tegretol. It is now at 400 mg morning and 200 mg night.
His last blood work from the 750mg twice daily was 75 and his tegretol was down to 8.1

Praying this works and NO side effects.
