Hi there...I keep seeing your request for help, and since no one seems to be coming to your rescue, and since I've been there with this problem with Depakote, I thought I could help.

I lost handfuls and handfuls of hair when using Depakote, and no amount of vitamin cocktail I took stopped it. BUT, if you want to give it a try, here is what I took:

2000mg or more of Biotin
400mg Selenium
Zinc (can't remember how much)

These are the three most important "hair-related" vitamins, I guess - especially the Biotin, which I still take, and it DOES do wonders for my nails! But really, the only thing that stopped the hair loss was to STOP THE MED. Slowly but surely my hair has grown back in. All those fancy, expensive shampoos didn't do diddly either.

Sorry to be so pessimistic. Maybe someone else had better luck.

Good luck to you!
