Not normally: It has been reported in cases in which encephalopathy occurred.

Probably Not: At exceptionally high doses, when it would be causing many other problems, it might do so. You can get a hint by a Depakote blood level. Otherwise, the hallucinations most likely have another cause, perhaps the condition that the Depakote is being prescribed to treat.
