I confirmed this fact with a neurologist and he agreed with me and took me off the Depakote This made the doctor I was seeing nurveous and he prescribed something else which also was wrong. I got another Dr and he told me what the second drug was too much and prescribed a non narcotic drug which worked but it was short lived. Then another Doctor put me on Gabapentin which will eventually end my life.

The itching was in the areas that touched water, except for my torso area. It is unrelenting for about 45 minutes. It is like being tortured for 45 minutes.
