Ive been taking Depakote for a week now & my breasts are so swollen & tender. I have already gone up almost but not quite two bra sizes. Is this normal?

    Less serious Depakote side effects may include:

    mild drowsiness or weakness;


    diarrhea, constipation, upset stomach;


    changes in your menstrual periods;


    enlarged breasts, weight changes;


    tremor (shaking);


    hair loss;


    vision changes; or


    unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth.
