In brief: Sometimes
"impulsive behavior disorder" is not an official diagnosis.
But Depakote is sometimes used for impulsivity associated with bipolar disorder, intermittent explosive disorder, and other psychiatric disorders. If the impulsivity is part of adhd, Depakote would not be a typical treatment.
