How long have you been on Depakote ? The wakefulness meds Nuvigil and Provigil would be one option. They are not stimulants in the traditional sense so they are not Schedule II. They promote wakefulness and originally were for Narcolepsy and work shift disorder. They lack some of the side effects that traditional stimulants have.
