People who experience symptoms of epilepsy, mania, or migraine headaches may benefit from Depakote® (divalproex sodium). This prescription medication works by increasing the amounts of a certain brain chemical (gamma-aminobutyric acid) and by affecting sodium channels in the brain. Depakote is not suitable for everyone. There are possible side effects of the medication, such as nausea, drowsiness, and headaches. Before starting Depakote, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you have and any other medications you are taking.
