Stopped taking Depakote about 2 weeks ago but my hair is still falling out. How long will it take to stop falling out?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Do not despair

Takes many days for the Depakote to leave your system fully, and the hair follicle toxicity will gradually resolve over next 2-3 weeks at most.
Depakote in my opinion is a very versatile and effective drug but due to adverse effects in females, is not my FIRST choice in most cases involving women.
