    seizures, depakote and diabetes

    My daughter is 45yrs old and is mentally disabled. Four yrs. ago she developed Type 2 diabetes. She has been on Depakote for seizures since she was 6yrs old. I feel as though it might have been the Depakene liquid that cause her to have the diabetes. It is a thick sugary syrup. She was on it for 39 years. My concern now is she needs to be on a diabetic drug but we have had a hard time finding one that is compatible with the depakote. Depakote is a dangerous drug and she can never come off it. And the drugs we tried for diabetes have caused her to have psychotic effects. She is only taking depakote and synthroid. Could I get some suggestions for some medicine for the diabetes. I am very uncomfortable trying new medicines.
