I have tried Depakote for prevention as well. At the time I started on it it was the only thing working as a preventative. Unfortunately as time went on it became less effective, story of my life. The only side effect I had was a slight hand trmmor which was hardly noticable. When I had to change doctors they did not put me back on it but switched me to a new preventative. I am almost ready to ask to try the Depakote again as it has been the most successfull the longest.
As for drinking I can not drink at all. Always triggers a migraine. The last time I had even a small amount (a mamosa at my sister's wedding) I had a migraine within the hour. Good thing I do not like to drink much. It is hard though not being able to do something. Seems that when we can't have something we want it all the more -- I MISS CHOCOLATE!!!
