Hi, I am new to the community and this website. I am searching for answers regarding weight gain from depakote. I take Lamictal as well, but from what I have been told the depakote is the culprit. I want to know if it is possible to lose weight on this damn medication. I have read that it slows your metabolism down and that worries me. I have gained 15 lbs. I am not huge but I feel bad about myself. It is really starting a depressive cycle for me. Has anyone experienced this and were you able to lose the weight?

i made this account because i hope this reaches someone who can understand. I feel immense shame and guilt over my past behavior while manic. I have ruined relationships with friends and family members, gotten tattoos that i dont want, done things that make me cringe. The weight of the self hatred gets to be too much sometimes. I feel like a burden. Nobody understands. I hate myself today.
