I took the Depakote, from 500 mg. to 1250 mg. when I was dx'ed with Bp II with ultra-rapid cycler, back 6 and a half years ago.

In regard to 'how long does the Depakote start working on you?' .... in my case, I felt the effect almost next day when I woke up in the morning. For me, it was a 'miracle drug' to appreciate. However, after I added the Lithium later on, the Depakote ceased completely, ... probably after one and a half years later on Lithium and Depakote mix.

It's strange you're NOT able to feel, ... your depression is getting milder or at least 'feeling better' after one week(?). In my hunch, ... the 500 mg. is NOT enough for your condition, ... or else the Depakote is NOT for you after all.

In my suggestion, try to call your rx'ed doc. to inform the current situation on the Depakote.
