1 Answer:

Hello Indri, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Depakote is a drug that contains Valproic Acid. This drug can be prescribed for conditions such as epilepsy, manic phase bipolar disorder, and to prevent migraine headaches. Some side effects that can occur from the use of this drug include:

nausea and vomiting
stomach pain
get sleepy and get tired quickly
emotional disturbance
menstrual cycle disorders
weight gain
hair loss
and less frequent side effects include dizziness, impaired movement coordination, and impaired vision

Your current non-menstrual condition may indeed be caused by side effects from depakote. However, you should not stop treatment without the permission of the doctor who treats you. Carelessly stopping treatment can cause symptoms of mania to reappear.


You can consult again with the doctor who treats you to consult the side effects of the drug on your menstrual cycle. The treating doctor may consider changing the type of your medication to keep your bipolar symptoms under control.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
