What is the purpose of the drug? Depakote is manufactured by Abbot Laboratories to help people with epileptic seizures. It is an anticonvulsant that has been in use since 1983. In addition to this, it is used to treat migraines as well as manic bipolar conditions. There are those people who have had to use the drug with no side effects whatsoever. It is the role of the manufacturer to disclose all the information there is to know about the product to the public. This includes the risks as well as the side effects. Failure to reveal all info means that they are ready to face the law if anyone suffers.
