Bipolar Disorder Message Board

Bipolar Disorder Board Index

I just learned a few weeks ago that I have Bipolar II. I'm still trying to process the diagnosis and learn what I can. I've been reading through the posts and the Board has been helpful.

I haven't seen this addressed so thought I would ask. I've started on Depakote ER and I'm at 1000mg a day. Did anyone notice that it changed the way food tasted or cause a bad taste in general? Food is not as enjoyable as it used to be except for a few specific things. I have been craving guacamole and hummus which are things I like, I just normally don't want them every day for every meal.

At the time of my diagnosis I was in a severe state of anxiety. I had been taking Wellbutrin XL and Buspar which were not helping. My pdoc took me off those drugs and started the depakote. I also wondered if Wellbutrin withdrawal could cause these food changes.
