I was diagnosed with JME when I was 21. Since then I have been taking 750mg of Depakote a day. I have experienced all of the side effects including weight gain, hair loss, and being tired all the time. I have been seizure free for two and a half years and my doctor has suggested I get another EEG done to determine if I can be taken off of Depakote. I'm terrified that I will still have seizure activity in my brain. Does anyone know what my chances are that I might have out grown JME?
