Usually subsides in 4-6 weeks.
Thanks for posting your query.
The side effects of Depakote ER like body aches and pains are minor and usually self limiting side effects. It takes 4-6 weeks for these to subside spontaneously. In few cases it can be associated with osteopenia
where such pains are persistent. It is best to get your serum calcium and Vitamin D3
levels evaluated to rule out osteopenia.
Till then you can start with a mild pain killer like acetaminophen
for symptomatic relief.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
