> Is there a medicine that is like depakote, but it does not make you gain weight. I been off of the Depakote for about 3 weeks now, but I feel terrible. But I do not like the weight gain either. Can anyone advise? I see the doctor at the end of this month.

Sure glad to find this board--been looking all over the Web for just this question, among others. Thank you all for input; I'm Bi-II, been on Depakote 6 mos., hate the weight gain, looking for more info on Lamictal and Neurontin. Both are PRESCRIBED as mood stabilizers to others in my DMDA support group here in California, but I can't fund up-to-date info on either as a mood stabilizer. Thanx for input on Topamax; will start hunting on THAT as well! Everything you say I agree with; but I take heart in how fast advances are happening and how many alternatives are being made available (if we have to get 'em through someone else's diagnosis and/or be guinea pigs, I'll take it. Better than being locked up or living on Lithium!
