Depakote or Depakote ER
Hi all.. I have a question for those of you who have taken both of these medications. I took depakote for twenty yrs. and have had great luck with it..however, due to ins. reasons I now have been switched to the depakote er. I have been told that it's exactly the same except for the way it's released in the body. I haven't been on it but a wk. but I'm a little nauseous, more tired than usual, etc. I'm afraid I will start having trouble and was just curious what others have experienced on these two drugs. I wonder if they are exactly the same?

Thanks for your answers.
