    Flabbergasted. Recently took a hair follicle test for work and tested positive for cocaine. I'm a 60 year old male who has been clean and sober for 8 years. As to cocaine, haven't used any since 1984! Marijuana was always drug of choice. I've no idea how to clear this up. Anyone have a similar experience?

    At a complete loss. Recently took a hair follicle test for work and it came back as positive for cocaine! So got fired. Haven't used any cocaine since 1984. I take Depakote for bipolar disorder but nothing else. I'm a 60 year old make and don't even drink or smoke. Anyone with similar experience? At a loss as to how or what to do.

  • Big Q!

    Hey there ehealth! I'm William, and I do take Restoral & Depakote. I'm a brain cancer Survivor. Had a Left Temperal Lobe Malignant tumor, about the size of a "tennis ball!" 2 separate surgeries ('06 & '08), & 1 round of TA Radiation therapy ('09). I've been in remission since 2009, yet I struggled with "insomnia, & petite mal seizures!" (More misfires &/or mental flashbacks) I've taken Restoral since 2007, & just 3 weeks ago I had to start Depakote due to my 1st ever series of Grand Mal seizures. Should I just stay on Depakote, & get away from Restoral, or is it ok to take these together? Just wanting another opinion on my situation. I'll be going to my Dr appt next week. Thank y'all & God's Blessings!

    I have a complicated medical situation. Just began taking Depakote for the Migraines specifically Hemiplegic Migraine. I have been taking for a little less than a week and noticed numbness in my face. Could possibly contributing to numbness in hands and feet but since I have Peripheral Neuropathy I can't say for sure.
