Are tremors common from epival/ depakote/ valproic acid?

In brief: Absolutely!

I rarely prescribe valproate as an initial anti-epileptic agent anymore (though i did years ago) since there are so many aeds (antiepileptic drugs) that just as well or better without causing so many side-effects.
Tremor is one of the chief offenders. Tremor can occur even at "sub-therapeutic" blood levels.
