Hello Honey Bunny, I've taken Depakote and now I'm taking the generic brand. The only issues that I had was that I would get extremely tired. I would end up taking a two hour nap. But after a while I got used to it and I no longer feel tired.

I hope it helps him. hugs

What does the instructions say? I would not deviate from his Dr.s orders. Call his Dr. and ask if that would be ok. Its the safest way.
