Depakote: sore muscles, back, joints?

Does anyone get the side effect of sore muscles and joints, especially in my back? I'm going to my family doctor today to see if he can prescribe something. None of the over the counter stuff is working. Thanks!

" I've been on Depakote almost 2 yrs.

One of the side effects can be muscle soreness..much like having the flue,an achy all over feeling.

It eventually went away.

I suggest you let your Pdoc know,rather than an MD,your Pdoc wll need to know about this side effect,and he also would be able to give you a script for pain killers that don't interfer with the BP meds.

Good luck "
