Depakote

Hi, I have a patient with Bipolar Dx who is doing beautifully on Depakote. However, she is concerned about her weight gain (she's been taking it for a few months). She is taking 750 mg of the Delayed Release. I would like to taper it off and start her on Lamictal or Topamax. I was wondering generally, how do you guys taper Depakote to discontinue? I hate taking the medication away as she is doing so well. Thanks
