any subs for depakote?/new to page

i am trying to get off of depakote. i still have jerks though when i reduce myself. i have been on it since i was 10 years old and i am now 29. my body is so used to the meds i have to take it by liquid form because the pill wont digest. i am also on lamectil and topomax. i have 2 children and both are healthy. my oldest is  high functioning autistic. i do not believe it is from the medicine because my 2 year old is perfectly normal. well i am new so i just also wanted to introduce myself also, i am an army wife and so my doctors are pretty limited.
