I took depakote for around twenty years. I had an MRI showing a T2-flair last year. I have almost all MS symptoms currently. I am no longer taking depakpte. I crave to eat the kind of thngs myelin is made of: like protein, meat connective tissue. High potasium foods, fat, cheese, green leaves, and I am testng to see if alkaline water made with ordnary baking soda, helps currently, as my skin is acid and disolves metal, so my acid body may be disolving my faytty meylin even wen I try to replenish it with these things. Self talk type hypnosis seems to help as does exercse. Does anyone have any advice for me?
Hi! I'm new to the group and glad to find people who are dealing with bipolar. I have been on dep for awhile but just started gettting hand tremors. And my hair is falling out!!! Is that going to stop? Is it permanent? I emailed my doc and he told me to stop taking dep and we would discuss it st the next appointment. But that's not for 3 months! I have several bad episodes this year and can't afford to deal with that again after finally getting more stable. Ugh. Side effects suck! Thoughts?!
