Depakote (divalproex) to PREVENT migraine headaches
The FDA just approved using Depakote (divalproex) to PREVENT migraine headaches. Some physicians are already using it for this...but now it's an official indication.
Depakote can reduce the frequency of migraines...and sometimes make them less severe.
Patients usually start with 250 mg of Depakote BID...titrating up to 1000 mg/day if needed.
