I have been on Depakote for a couple of months and have gained almost 20lbs. I am freaking out because I am already 100 lbs overweight. My Dr. has tried me on a lot of other meds and with no luck because I am so sensitive and get bad side effects. This med seems to be helping the racing thoughts problem, but I can't deal with gaining much more weight. It is making me so depressed and stressed I feel like telling her to forget it. I was doing pretty good at exercising a few days a week and eating pretty healthy before all of this and had lost 25 lbs last year doing this. My motivation is in the toilet right now, but I was wondering if there is hope of losing again if I get back on track with regular exercise and more low cal food choices???? Has anyone out there had any luck fighting this battle to lose and still stay on the med?
