I haven't noticed any weight gain from Depakote, but I have found that i'm finding it difficult to loose any weight whilst on it.

I have taken Olanzapine in the past and although I found it to be a great drug that actually worked, I gained lots of weight straight away. I no longer take it because of this reason.

my roommate is bi-polar and long ago they put her on depakote and she gained LOTS of weight, so much so she had to have them take her off of it.
