Hair loss with medications.

Hair loss with medications.

I have been on Depakote ER for some time. And just recently found out that the Depakote that I have been taking for my Epilepsy is what could be causing my hair loss. Has anyone else had this problem?

Looking for insight on Briviact

Looking for insight on Briviact

I'm switching from Depakote to Briviact tomorow. I've been on Depakote for at least 6 years and it's caused horrible weight gain. I dealt with that for a while but now I'm wanting to have children so I have to get off of Depakote. Has anyone taken Briviact? If so, did you have any weight gain with it? What side effects did you get the most?
