My step father is on depakote, it seems to really work well for him, he still gets depressed, but he does have bi-polar, no cure they just treat the
symptoms. My x-wife has Sever bi-polar + other things she has taken seriquil[?] lithium, geodon, and a host of other cocktails.
When they first get on these drugs the adverse side effects usually go away in the first month, but the effectiveness of the drugs seem to wain in
time, and after 2 years there are almost completely useless other than lithium.
Edit to add, I really hate that I know what I know, to watch some one take these pills only to have to deal with the mental condition plus the side
effects is heart breaking.
