Depakote® (divalproex sodium) is a medication that is used to treat various conditions, including epilepsy, manic episodes associated with bipolar disorder, and migraine headaches. The drug works by increasing certain brain chemicals that stop or slow down abnormal brain signals that lead to seizures. Side effects of Depakote may include dizziness, drowsiness, and shakiness.
Depakote comes in the form of delayed-release tablets and capsules, and is available by prescription. Currently, Depakote is not available in generic form. The earliest that generic versions of Depakote delayed-release tablets or Depakote® Sprinkle capsules could become available is January 2008, when the patent for these products expires. The earliest that a generic for long-acting Depakote ER® could become available is December 2018.
