Depakote nausea


Well I started on the Depakote this past Thursday and was wondering if/how long others had extreme nausea after introducing it into their course of meds. I've started on 250mg twice daily, I've reduced my clobazam to .5mg at bedtime for 2 weeks until I'm weaned off and I'm also on 300mg topamax daily (100mg, 3X daily) so I'm not sure if one has to do with the other...

I have not been able to eat more than a few bites of food a day and even water makes me feel very sick to my stomach, but I do drink at least 1.5-2 litres a day to keep well hydrated since that is what that is what my body is used to.

On the upside, when I went on clobazam I gained about 35 lbs and have only lost 10 and in the past few days I've dropped another 3
I always get the more rare side effects, maybe I'll be one of the ones who loses weight!

Thanks in advance for any info, my poor burning insides appreciate it!
