Comment:
With taking this medicine, it has affected my memory and I have tremors. I had only taken it only 1 week. I wasn't warned by my doctor to look for side effects. It's been 1-19-10, since I've been off it and the effects are still there. Who knows what would have become of me if I had taken any longer? I was being treated for migrains.

Comment:
I have daily migraines + severe auras (alice in wonderland syndrome). Divalproex takes care of much of the syndrome, and I can't miss a single dosage of it without getting a migraine. However, while it may not have worsened my depression, it certainly hasn't helped, so watch yourself.

I have been plagued by headaches all my adult life, over 40 years. Finally, I have been able to stop taking Excedrin 12 a day!! Now I don't wake up with a headache every day, and even if I do, its usually not as bad as before. Divalproex has worked wonders for me!!

Was prescribed for a 12 year old boy. After two months large iridescent bruises appeared. Took off medication. Started taking Singular 10 mg and headaches have dropped from every day to once a week.
