Depakote is used to treat the manic phase of bipolar disorders (manic-depressive illness), and to prevent migraine headaches. Divalproex is an anticonvulsant. It works by reducing or preventing the number of seizures by controlling the abnormal activity of nerve impulses in the brain and central nervous system. Depakote is sometimes used together with other seizure medications. Take Depakote exactly as it was prescribed for you.
