I'm used to my son taking 500mg of depakote, a large, grey, oval pill. Now he's taking a larger white oval pill with M 473 on one side. What is that?

I located a match for M 473 white oval pill it's Divalproex sodium ER 500 mg, which is used to help with certain seizures as well as epilepsy.

I take this. It is Divalproex ER 500mg, but it can also be used for mood stabilization and bi-polar disorder.
