I'm declaring war on depakote. I took it a few years ago and gained 35 pounds. I quit taking it. The weight didn't go away and I was no longer stable. I tried a bunch of different mood stabilizers. I'm back on depakote again. My mood is stable but the weight gain is over the top. I am absolutely ravenous all the time. I started taking it about two months ago. Within a month I had to buy all new clothes in a bigger size. Here it is another month later and I'm buying all new clothes again. I gained 5 pounds LAST WEEK ALONE. I eat all the time and I'm starving most of the time. I joined weight watchers a few weeks ago. Even when I eat well over what I'm allowed I am constantly hungry and even get physically ill. As of now I am declaring war on depakote. I don't care how damn hungry I get - I am NOT eating more than I should. Period, end of story. I don't care if I keep vomiting up my pills. I'll take more. This is insane. I can't keep gaining 5 pounds a week.
