Hi Sara...I have such a long story about Depakote, but I will save that for later...LOL! Anyway, My Neuro is also a researchr at the Univrsity of Miami, he is supposedly the best in the state and I ADORE him. That said, we did go over ALL the side effects, and he said he wouldnt want me taking it if I were PREGNANT, but in the case of trying or being young...he prescribed Folic Acid! Happy to help w/ any othr ? or concerns. Take care of yourself and God Bless you...good luck if u r trying to get preggers!
