I've been put on Depakote 250mg in the morning and 500mg at night! I have read so many places that Depakote causes weight gain, and since I just lost 20l pounds after 2 back surgeries this summer, the last thing I want to do is gain it back and then some. When I was put on Prozac, I gained 40+ pounds, I lost it only to gain it all bakck again. Now, after years of being off Prozac, I have lost 20 pounds but I was just put on Depakote about 3 weeks ago and I am terrified of going overboard with the weight-gain that is inevitable in my case if there is ever ANY chance of an increase in weight associated with a medication. Does anyone know if there is a problem with weight gain and Trileptal? Also, I am majorly dozing all of the time, but I was also put on Geodon a week ago. Does Depakote make you extremely sleepy, how about if I can switch to Trileptal, does high doses of that zap you of all energy?? Thanks for the reply/replies!! teadkin
