Thanks for pointing out what adults have been experiencing for a while now, American Medical Association. When I was first prescribed Depakote (which was not part of the study), I gained 30 pounds within 2 months or so. Though the article makes it sound as though weight gain is an issue only when children take this medicine, but weight gain should be a concern among adults as well. We already have one illness to deal with. We don’t need to add a weight problem on top of it.
