side effects of depakote | How I dealt with the depakote side effects
http://melindacurle.com/2013/09/28/addressing-the-causes-of-seizures-naturally/ My name is Melinda Curle. I was on Depakote throughout my teen age years. I would say that the side effects of Depakote were subtle. However, it is important to realize that I started slowly on anticonvulsants and increased my dosage over about two years. My body adjusted and the side effect of Depakote on me was mainly lethargy and responding slowly. My family noticed that I responded slower than the other siblings, but never said anything to me until my medication was switched and they thought I could handle the opinion that I was "slower." Side effects of Depakote on other people will vary and it is good to check with your doctors about them. Not everyone will want to deal with the side effects of Depakote. I certainly didn't. There were some things that improved my quality of life while I was on Depakote. I was a swimmer and getting extra exercise did seem to lessen the side effects of Depakote. Another thing that helped was that I didn't eat a ton of junk food. My parents just didn't have much around the house. The Depakote side effects were minimized by a healthier lifestyle. You can help your body expel toxins and improve your side effects of Depakote with a healthy clay detox bath, some deep breathing exerises and eliminated processed foods from your diet. 0:01 side effects of Depakote video begins 0:05 learn about my side effects from Depakote 1:00 Check out my blog for more on the side effects of Depakote Here is the link to my blog to learn more about the side effects of Depakote - http://melindacurle.com/2013/09/28/addressing-the-causes-of-seizures-naturally/

My Seroquel Taper: Start to Finish (What You Might Expect)
This video is for educational purposes only and is not intended to treat or diagnose. The opinions expressed are that of the individual in the video and nobody else. Please consult a health care professional for all mental and physical healthcare needs. Please SHARE THIS VIDEO if you found it useful or if you know somebody who is suffering and/or feeling alone. Thank you. IN THIS VIDEO I DISCUSS MY EXPERIENCE COMING COMPLETELY OFF OR SEROQUEL THAT WAS LEGALY PRESCRIBED BY MY MEDICAL DOCTOR FOR MY MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS OF DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY. MY STORY: My name is Noah and on May 18 2011, I had a rare reaction to a vaccine called VIVITROL and consequently spiraled into a major, agitated, suicidal depression with depersonalization. I lost 25 lbs in 4 weeks and was in full panic or near panic for 8 weeks straight mixed with the darkest most painful depression I cold have ever imagined. I immediately could not work and had to move in with my parents who along with many siblings and friends had to watch me 24/7 as I was so suicidal. I was eventually hospitalized. Getting through each day seemed truly unbearable and I knew I would surely die. I have been put on many many different SSRI's SNRI's Tricyclics, Mood stabilizers, anti psychotics, holistic meds, acupuncture and even a form of shock therapy called RTMS. I barely saw any improvement in my condition for a full year. It was decided I had treatment resistant depression and I spent nearly every moment in tears. Weeks after starting my newest round of medications (Seroquel & Nortryptaline) as a last ditch effort, I had my blood drawn for possible hormone imbalances and my Testosterone levels came back 200 ng/Dl and 150 ng/Dl. The average 25 year old male has 750 ng/Dl. With this discovery I for the first time had any type of possible explanation as to why I was not getting better and why I might be so so sick. The symptoms of such Low T are very similar to those of major depression. I started Testosterone replacement therapy soon after and have been checking in with the world and documenting my experience with treatment. I am blessed to say that I have slowly over the last 8 months been improving and becoming more stable which I never thought to be possible. My low T manifested itself in the form of Major depression, anxiety, and depersonalization/ derealization for over a year. I am glad to report that I have experienced improvements in all areas and that is a miracle. I do not consider myself to be totally healed yet but I am closer now then ever before and aim to use what I have been through to help or at least offer support to others in need.

Divalproex Medication Information (dosing, side effects, patient counseling)
Your medication Divalproex Divalproex sodium is also known by the brand name: Depakote, Depakote ER and Depakote Sprinkle capsules. Divalproex sodium comes in 125, 250, and 500 mg tablets, 250 and 500mg extended release tablets, and 125mg sprinkle capsule. Divalproex sodium is most commonly used to treat seizures, bipolar problems, and prevent migraine headaches. No matter what your doctor has you taking it for, divalproex sodium is taken by mouth with or without food 1 to 4 times a day. If upset stomach occurs, take divalproex sodium with food. If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you think about it. If it is close to time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your normal dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at the same time or extra doses. For best results take each dose at the same time each day. Extended-release tablets must be swallowed whole, do not split or break tablets. Divalproex Sprinkle capsules may be swallowed whole or the capsule may be opened and sprinkled on small amount (1 teaspoonful) of soft food like pudding, or applesauce. This is to be used immediately (do not store or chew). Some common side effects with divalproex sodium include headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tiredness, weakness, tremor, dizziness, blurry eye sight, and loss of hunger. Some less common side effects include swelling of the arms or legs, high or low blood pressure, weight gain, and constipation. Do not take divalproex sodium if: you are pregnant, have liver problems or under the age of 2 years. This medication should not be abruptly discontinued because of the possibility of increasing seizure frequency. While taking divalproex sodium, remember it is important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if: • You have signs of an allergic reaction (rash, itching, swelling, tightness of the chest, etc.) • You have dark urine, are feeling tired, are not hungry, have an upset stomach, are throwing up, or have yellowing of the skin or eyes. • Are pregnant as this drug may cause very bad birth defects. If you are or become pregnant and take this drug for seizures or bipolar disorder, talk to your doctor to see if you need to keep taking this drug. All forms of divalproex sodium including the liquid needs to be stored at room temperature in a dry place away from children or pets.

Recovering from Drug induced Parkinson's Disease
Do not stop taking Depakote without talking to your Doctor. It can be a lifesaving medication, Monitor Free levels of this medication to insure safety.This site is not intended as a substitute for medical advice. It is important to always consult a physician before making medical decisions. My Dad's Depakote story started in 2009 with a Depakote dose of 250mg twice a day, then a Parkinson's diagnosis in 2011. I stayed with my dad this spring while my mom was in the hospital and became more involved with his care. I started to read about his medications and question some of them because of things that I had read. He takes mestinon for MG, which is mandatory, prednisone which I wish he didn't need, and want him to taper off of, and he also took Depakote, Prozac, and simvastatin which are the three meds that I was questioning based on articles on Pub Med and side effects that I had seen on Drugs.com that matched my dad's symptoms. Throughout the last 4 years he has gradually become weaker. He was admitted to the university hospital 3 weeks ago, after an ER visit to another hospital where he was sent home the same night. While at the university I asked them to draw a Valproic acid level and it came back normal. The nurse continued to tell me that the rest of the Valproic Values and the Free Valproic came back at 42. His neurologist checked his Valproic Acid levels often in her clinic and they had always been normal. I looked back through his medical records and noticed that he did have a Free Valproic level drawn only once before, on the same visit to the hospital in 2011 when he was diagnosed with Parkinson's. His free level was also high on that visit. I read about the Free Valproic level, and then I understood. His neurologist had never looked at that level. The neurologist at the university hadn't looked either. No one had, and no one knew what a Free Valproic level was, at least none of the people I was talking to. And they didn't understand what a high free level meant, or what the consequences were. NO ONE KNEW! Including Utah poison control! Utah poison control did understand that a free level was the unbound portion of Depakote but they did not think it was at a toxic level. When I called Abbott Laboratories (the manufacturer of Depakote), they knew the free level was the unbound portion of Depakote but said that they had no information on normal ranges, and that they didn't include that information in their prescribing information! I did find information with normal and toxic ranges on ARUPs site. My dad's Level was toxic! Above 15 is Toxic! My Dads Medications, Prozac, Simvastatin, Prednisone (throughout the years he also took (aspirin {which is a whole other story} ibuprofen and naproxen) are all highly protein bound and fighting for Albumin and increasing Free Depakote levels. It's true that over the years my Dad's Depakote level had been normal, but, if his free level had been checked its probable they would have been high. I explained this to the doctors who said that I was wrong, and one of them said he would read about it. I had to explain this to my mom. I told her to stop the Depakote but she wouldn't listen to me, it had to come from a doctor. After all, doctors are there to protect you. And honestly, I doubted myself. They were "tapering him off" of Depakote by decreasing his dose, but they were actually putting more into his system. My Dad could not move very well anymore, or think or remember anything. Rod helped me be brave, and a phone call to a good friend who firmly said "STOP THE DEPAKOTE," gave me the power to do what I needed to do. I threw a fit, I didn't want to, but I had to, to get people to listen. I told the nurses no more Depakote. Then my mom told my dad to refuse it. The rehab doctor started to read about free levels and protein binding and told my mom that it was ok to refuse it ( I guess he couldn't discontinue because neurology ordered it, I'm not really sure.) This same doctor said, "I know that my practice is forever changed, but I can't speak for others... Thank you." It was nice to hear him say that. I have felt crazy for a while; it was nice to be acknowledged by one of them. There is a lot more to the story, so much more that I am writing a case study hopefully to try and change things and help with awareness of protein bound drug interactions. Apparently this problem is being GREATLY MINIMIZED! And to all the neurologists out there CHECK FREE LEVELS but, the important thing is that my dad is getting better, he is walking and moving and thinking better. It is amazing! I am seeing him do things that I haven't seen him do for over 2 years!!!!!!!! It is very probable that my Dads Parkinson's Disease is not PD but was caused by Depakote toxicity; he should continue to improve over the next three months or so, hopefully a full recovery https://www.facebook.com/pages/Drug-Induced-Disease-Awareness/169088816613730#

Medication & Sticking To It.
Hi guys! I know this video is a long one, and probably a bit repetitive, but stick with me it's an important topic. Medication is majorly important in the mental health community and needs to be taken seriously. This all is coming from a place of love and support!! Here's he quote about Zoloft: “Zoloft has a half-life of about one day. That means that for every day that passes without taking the medication, the level in the blood falls by 50 percent. After one day, the level is reduced to 50 percent of the original level, after two days to 25 percent, after three days to 12.5 percent, and so on. Because Zoloft leaves your body so quickly, stopping it too abruptly can cause discontinuation syndrome to develop. Among the symptoms that may be experienced are nausea, tremor, dizziness, muscle pains, weakness, insomnia, and anxiety” https://www.verywellmind.com/tapering-off-zoloft-1067486 Sources: https://psychcentral.com/lib/discontinuing-psychiatric-medications-what-you-need-to-know/ http://newsroom.ucla.edu/stories/new-study-examines-effects-of-stopping-psychiatric-medication https://www.verywellmind.com/tapering-off-zoloft-1067486 https://mentalhealthdaily.com/2014/07/15/depakote-valproic-acid-withdrawal-symptoms-how-long-they-last/ http://www.campusmindworks.org/students/treatment/medication/starting%20psychiatric%20medication%20treatment.asp Online Support Groups: https://www.inspire.com/groups/mental-health-america/ https://psychcentral.com/resources/Mental_Health/Support_Groups/ cassowary.mountain@gmail.com Photo by freestocks.org on Unsplash
Psychotropic drugs - Side Effects (Making A Killing)
Dr William Glasser, psychiatrist: "No drugs has side effects. They are all effects. "Side effect" is just a way that doctors explain away the effects you don't like, or you won't like. But they are effects. Lääkkeellä ole sivuvaikutuksia. Ne ovat kaikki vaikutuksia. Sivuvaikutukset on vain lääkärien tapa selittää mitättömiksi ne vaikutukset, mistä he eivät pidä, tai joista sinä et pidä. Mutta ne ovat vaikutuksia."

Sodium valproate
Sodium valproate (INN) or valproate sodium (USAN) is the sodium salt of valproic acid and is an anticonvulsant used in the treatment of epilepsy, anorexia nervosa, panic attack, anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, migraine and bipolar disorder, as well as other psychiatric conditions requiring the administration of a mood stabiliser. Sodium valproate can be used to control acute episodes of mania and acute stress reaction. Side effects can include tiredness, tremors, nausea, vomiting and sedation. The intravenous formulations are used when oral administration is not possible. In pregnancy, valproate has the highest risk of birth defects of any of the commonly used antiepilepsy drugs. However, some epilepsy can only be controlled by valproate, and seizures also pose grave risk to mother and child. This video is targeted to blind users.

Leg Tremors (10 min)
This is a long video and all you have to watch is like 5 min if you want. This is the leg tremors I have been suffering from in addition to my arm tremor. There are these lovely other movements that come to play sometimes too. Its all mostly at rest movements. Meaning they happen when my body is at rest or that limb is at rest. Sometimes I get random hand, finger, arm movements. Like today in the car I was hitting the door. Such is the joy of living with odd tremors. They say you are not given more than you can handle. Well I am learning to accept and cope with it. Filmed on November 2, 2010 AS usual if you have nothing nice to say please do not say anything at all.
