False Alarm

I went to the ER at about 8:00 PM last night (it’s 5:52 AM now) because I found out that some of the problems I’ve been having lately could be from Depakote causing Kidney or Liver Failure. Well, after many, many sticks of the needle and pain that went from a 7 to a 9 to a 6 to a 10 to an 8, I am back at home with only one clear result from any of the multiple tests that they performed. Apparently, I’m NOT on ENOUGH Depakote. It’s supposed to be at 50-150 micrograms/mL. It’s at 29.

I am going to get off of this stupid medicine.

One thought on “False Alarm”

  1. The doctor wants me to be on 2,000 mil of Depakote which is 4. I went along with it and put the meds in at wal-mart. Well I didn't take 4, I still took 3 and now I'm taking 2 because I'm going to quit taking it altogether. I keep gaining weight from it and I'm not happy. I told him, he doesn't listen. He could care less that I'm gaining weight. So there for I'm going to quit it. I won't be on any meds then. But oh well I went all my life and teen yrs with out any, so I will just go with out now.
