My Neuro has me on 2250 mg. Depakote daily. Weight gain is possible but a few pounds can be shed after an episode is over. Also not a bad idea to stay active as much as possible during an episode. Some of us have even tried vigorous exercise, ie: brisk walking, right when an attack starts. Helps for some.
I have used Imitrex nasal often with good results but the taste is nasty and you cannot divide doses. Injections I find easy and often very effective. Just had sinus surgery 1 week before my current episode began so my vote goes to injectables. Its all very expensive so ask your doc for all the free samples they can spare. Good Luck!
