Brief Answer:
DIVAA OD should be stopped.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your details and the list of medications.

Divaa OD (divalproex) should be stopped prior to conception, as it can potentially harm the baby. Other medications are safe.

You can wait until divaa od is topped, before planning pregnancy.

Best wishes,
