I’m wondering if anyone could discuss what medication combinations are working for them? I’m super scared to use depakote even though I’m supposed to be on it.

Bipolar Disorder

Valproic Acid


Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


Anxiety (Including GAD)

Polycystic Ovary (PCOS)

    I'm on olazapine for schizophrenia n effexor for ptsd also gabapentin for anxiety n it's a good combination for me although I only know that because I took a gene test at the doctor's office to see which medications work with me n which ones dont. I recommend asking your PCP if they offer the gene test so you don't have to keep being put on medication that doesn't work well with your body. Depakote made me feel like a zombie n also my hair was falling out but everybody reacts differently.

      I was prescribed gabapentin too for anxiety. I just haven’t taken it. I’m weary of medications. That one’s worked for you?

        gabapentin works great for me. In my opinion if you're having problems it's best to get treated somehow whichever way you're most comfortable with instead of going untreated.. like maybe you're interested in a more holistic approach n might want to try that before you get started on prescriptions. If holistic doesn't help then I would just take your meds.
