I saw my doctor two weeks ago and he raised my Depakote. I am on Lithium, Depakote and Xanax. I have been really irritable and short tempered with everyone at work and at home. He has told me to raise the depakote again to get the edginess off. Has anyone been through this type of regime?

I used to be on Lithium, but I am currently on Depakote. I have never taken both at the same time. He is probably raising the Depakote to see if that helps to calm you down before adding/changing your meds.
