Thank you for posting your query.

DIVAA-OD (Divalproex) is an excellent drug for treating migraine. It is generally well tolerated and is free of serious side effects.

Common side effects seen with Divaa OD include weight gain, tremors of hands and hair loss. However these side effects are seen in less than 5% people.

The only serious side effect with Divaa OD is liver damage, which is fortunately rare (occurs in less than 0.1% people.

Serta (Sertraline) is a very good medicine for treating depression and is a very safe drug.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
