Divalproex Extended Release

Divalproex ER (Depakote ER®) is a medication that is licensed for preventing migraine headaches and for treating mania and epilepsy. It is approved for treating mania only in adults, but can be used for both migraine prevention and epilepsy treatment in children.
 
This medication is the long-acting form of divalproex; it only needs to be taken once a day. Do not crush, break, or chew divalproex ER, as it is an extended-release tablet.
