Question: Depakote possible side effect

 lanalynn9 - Sat Dec 29, 2007 10:45 pm

I have been taking Depakote for approx. 8 weeks, along with Lithium 750mg, my maintenane med. Can Depakote cause a thickening/whitening of vaginal discharge?

User avatar Hi Lanalynn9,

This would not be a typical side effect of depakote. Your description fits a yeast infection better. I would recommend you see your doctor about this if it persists.

Best wishes.
