Divalproex Sodium Delayed-release 500 mg

Divalproex Sodium, my mood stabilizer

Last night, in the midst of a change in routine, I forgot to take my night-time medication. When I saw that my pill-box still contained last night’s medication this morning, I took a partial night-time dose of divalproex sodium this morning. My current night-time dos is 1000 mg. This morning I took 750 mg; one 500 mg tablet, one 250 mg tablet.

Today I will be sleepy. Crap. I absolutely HATE it when I forget a dose of medication. I feel it immediately. Now I’m very, very tired, since I usually take divalproex before I go to bed, not first thing in the morning. It has sedating side effects. At least I take the extended release version. No doubt, it is time to make some coffee.
