Depakote 250 MG Tablet XR Questions

My wife is suffering from Bipolar disorder. She had had an episode of Mania in August after which this condition was diagnosed. Doctor had prescribed Divalpro 750 mg as maintenance drug which was later reduced to 500 mg as she was experiencing dizziness. She is facing weight gain and hair fall which is probably the side effects of this. Can we have some other alternatives to this to avoid these side effects?

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Codeine addiction comes under SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND ADDICTION. Deaddiction treatment is best suited for such addictions. Medically assisted drug detoxification or alcohol detoxification alone is ineffective as a treatment for addiction. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommends detoxification followed by both medication (where applicable) and behavioral therapy, followed by relapse prevention.

It has very negligible amount in your breast milk. Your baby might be slightly lazy but its a transient effect, no long term side effects has been reported. Therefore, You may continue to breast fed your baby. If you are much concerned.

Ideally ñot recommended as they are tabs for seizure and nerve damage, and are likely to get secreted in breast milk too, so avoid breast feeding and give your baby top feed.

Now a days green coffee is in trend to reduce weight is this possible. How to take these coffee seeds.
Hye, Thanks for your query. First of all no food will work in isolation in weight/fat loss. It's a balanced diet that is important to fat loss. Remedies like green coffee don't help weight loss. They help replace unhealthy drinks and act as a detox which definitely will help better metabolism. This will aid in your efforts to lose weight bit not in isolation. You have to eat the right foods at the right time. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed.                        Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing.     It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called singular remedies will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, have your green coffee but accompany it with good diet, exercise and sleep to see result.

Divalproex sodium is a psychotropic medication that is usually not prescribed for plain anxiety disorder diagnosis. I believe your psychiatrist has diagnosed you with some other condition as well for which this medication is being given. Nonetheless you seem to be concerned about weight gain and ask how you could lose weight. Both the medications can result in increased appetite. However consumption of meals or in technical terms caloric intake is in your hands. So a healthy meal along with a regular exercise regimen is sufficient for you to lose weight. We would be glad to help you further. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio, or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.
