In brief: See MD

See your prescribing doctor to discuss concern that Depakote isn't helping your hyper or hypomanic states.
Suggest seeing a mental health therapist to explore other ways to address your mood swings. Check with your pcp or doctor treating your fibromyalgia to discuss status and any recommendations for pain relief, eg., physical therapy. Good luck!
