Has anyone heard if getting the flu shot had a negative interaction w/Depakote?

I've had petit mal seizures since before I was a teen and officially found out it was epilepsy when I was 14.  I also found out that the type of epilepsy I have can progressively get worse and I've noticed that happening within the last 2-3 years.  I realized frequent twitching in my extremities and even my jaw.  Now I take Clonazepan for those types of seizures as well as my Depakote ER.  I've dealt w/the epilepsy pretty well throughout my life, I am now 29.  I did have a grand mal seizure in 2000 when I was VERY sick w/the flu and taking various otc meds.  Now that I've read the many articles on decongestants and antihistamines I avoid them at all cost.  I'm so happy I found this website where I can talk w/others that have epilepsy.  It can sometimes be very lonely without anyone to talk to about various things in your life affected by this disease.  I look forward to learning so much more about this and making some great friends.
