Does anymore know if you can get withdrawals after stopping depakoe for 3 months.........I weaned off of this medicine fine..but know I seem to be getting headaches and dizziness.....It could be sinus issues......but can this be from the depakoe????

    Hi Rita, no it doesn't sound as if it's coming from weaning off it. If you would have stopped cold then maybe but not when you did it gradually. It does sound like a sinus issue more than a symptom of coming off any drugs. I take large doses about 6000 IU's of vitamin D3, for a few days and it kicks it right out of my system as recommended by my doctor.

      Actually...thats what it sounds like to me too....Had problems with sinus about a month ago maybe a little longer.......today was a much better day......dr didn't want to put me on antibiotics because neither one of us felt it was an infection...more of an inflammation...i was suppose to call him back if it didnt feel better..of course I didn't because family stuff was going on.....just needed another opinion about depakoe..didnt want to go to the headache specialist and she puts me on something else...on Gabapentin 100 mg once a day...I weaned down to that....when I took it every other day it was not wonderful after the 4th day.....stayed like that for 6 days and then it got to a point where I couldnt function.....had to go back on it...heard they make a liquid one where I can drop like 10 mg every 3 to 4 weeks.....Thanks for replying.........dont know if antibiotic will help inflammation

      It's not enough Vitamin D3 and new studies have come out that calcium builds plague in the arteries so they're saying to stop it. I take Vitamin D3 by itself as suggested by my doctor.  I bought 2000IU's and I take 3 of them when I feel a cold or sinus problem coming on and it kicks it right out.
