Divalproex is the third bipolar med I've tried, and it's the first that doesn't feel like a complete waste of money. I do get some slight tremors after my morning dose, but that's the only side effect I've experienced (my liver function's actually improved since I switched from lithium). There's a definite difference in my mood, too -- I'm far less irritable and edgy on divalproex than I felt on l...

Took this medication for only two days and was told to take it in the morning....... i had blurry\double vision had trouble driving to work and i was scared.... i had SEVERE tremors at work, jaw was killing me, fast irregular heartbeat, rapid breathing..... my side effects were so bad that i had to leave my job and go to the nearest emergency room.....they took my vitals and my heart rate was 120 and my tremors were so bad that they had to immediately give me a medication to cancel out the medication and get it out of my system

Taking for over 30 years for seizure prevention. LOTS of side effects until it levels out in the system approximately 50 days. Still have extreme fatigue, dizziness if dose is too high, dries fluids out in my body, no alcohol ever - these never end. BUT I can drive now. Mood swings are unpreventable. Choices are extremely limited.
