Used for various kinds of seizures in my 3 yr old. Only effective med after trying Trileptal, Keppra and Topamax. A pain to open each cap and administer with applesauce so ease of use was docked 2 stars for that!

My daughter has simple partial, complex partial, and generalized tonic clonic seizures. Depakote controls her GTCs pretty well. The things is, she is so exhausted that, even after 10 hours of sleep the night before, school sends her home. She also vomits every day after taking it! I am very concerned about damage it might be doing. Her doctor thinks I'm exagerating. It doesn't control her SPs and CPs completely. Her seizures start in her occipital lobe. We are only taking it because she's allergic to everything else we've tried. I'm so frustrated. She took it as a small child, so her time on it is more like 3 and a half years or so, but this time it's 6 months, maybe.

I was given depakote to erase the crazed mood swings that ruined my ever day life. It took a few weeks for it to kick in, but once it did it improved my life so much. I was able to function properly and go through the whole day without problems. Unfortunantly. You have to keep taking the medicine. My life has been going back to the way it was since my mother stopped helping me get the meds I need.

My 9 yr old son has been on Keppra made him crazy hyper. We bith lost 10 lbs trying to keep up with him 9neither of us needed to lose weight). Lamitcal rash and very duh like. Topimax mean to brother and sister. This med seems to work for seizures if we used right I think. He does weird stuff on it like accidents on floor. Always holds up three fingers and looks at them. Shakes his rear end like at dance club. It is hard to know what med is right or not. He had head injury and is relearning to talk. So I have to make the decisions. Not happy with Dr either only 2 child nuros in OK and they are so busy you cant get in or feel they have time to care. I really just hate all the meds he has taken it really slows down his relearning process.
