Well I finally was able to see the pdoc. She is taking me off of the effexor uping the abilify (does any one know the effects of this med?) and keeping me on the lamicatal. Thank you all for being so supportive. *HUGZ* she however said nothing about my having trouble sleeping, except to take with my other doc about the depakote. Has anyone tooken Depakote and found themselves very tired?

I'm so glad you saw your pdoc.

Unfortunately I don't have experience of these meds (only what I find on google! Which anyone can do) so I hope someone comes along who has had first hand knowledge of them smurf

Hang in there.

Take care ,

mom,
 
glad things went well with the pdoc.  i hope and pray that these meds help you - and with acceptable side effects.
 
my pdoc rxed depakote for me as a sleeping aid.  when i am just can't sleep i find that they work well.  if i am hyper/in a manic state, they don't work worth a d*nm.  oh, well.  nothing is perfect. :-)    thank the gods i haven't had to use depakote in weeks.  last night, however, wan another matter.  i had to use a tamazapam for the first time in months.  my wife survived colorectal cancer but they found a lump in her breast last month.  i was just freaking out.  happens evey once in a while, you know.  even for someone my age (61).  i just can't picture life without her. of course we don't know what it is at this point.   life's too important to be taken seriously.  now baseball. . . .
 
hope my input helps.

Thank you all for responding. I really do love this board. I switch the time I take the depakote to the mornings and it works for my headaches but still having the same sleep problems. Anyone else having sleeping problems?
Are you having a good day :) or a bad day :(
Either which way glad to meet you. :D
