I have to go off my depakote in order to start a family. My doctor said it has a birth defect rate of 75%! I would love to start my family right away, but I already miss at least one day a week of work due to migraines and that's with the meds. I've been on them for over 10 years. My work is starting to get frustrated with me. Right now I'm in the process of trying a gluten free, dairy free, basically chemical free diet; acupuncutre, bio-feedback, yoga, more exercise, drinking more water, taking magnesium, fish oil and pre-natal vitamins, and seeing a neurologist. Is there anything not on my list that you tried that worked? Mothers - how did you deal with having to go off the medication. Did the migraines get worse? I know I'm not the only one out there with this issue. I just need some advice!
