Anyone Taking Depakote ER?

After trying many migraine preventives, my doctor wanted me to try Depakote ER. I read about the side effects and so far I'm experiencing the stomach upset in the morning and the evening, early morning lethargy and general depression, and my hair is turning loose easier (not coming out in chunks or anything).

I can handle these things for now, it's only been 4 days since starting it, but here's my main question. My doctor didn't say what time of day to take this, but I noticed on the bottle it said it may cause drowsiness so I started taking it at bedtime. Well it doesn't make me drowsy, instead I can't go to sleep for like 5 hours after taking it. Do those of you that take this take it in the morning or at night? Thank you in advance for responses!!
