I've been on 12 mg for a number of months now and have found it to reduce my anxiety some. I felt a increasing effect after a few weeks and as I increased my dosage. I'm not sure if I noticed a difference between 9 mg and 12.
Also, your situation feels like mine and my depression has virtually been eliminated with a low dose of lithium, 750 mg, which is similar to but different from Depakote.
I also take Lamictal, which seems to be helping because when I tried to taper off recently I started to feel worse.
There are many options. Don't give up hope. (I suffered excrutiating morning depressions for almost 30 years before we realized I was in the Bipolar Spectrum and began taking lithium.)
