I have been on Depakote ER now for a week.
6 Oct 2011
I believe that depakote kicks in really fast after a few day's consumption, as in hospitals it is the pill of choice for a manic episode, when combined with an anti-psychotic. I quit abruptly for a couple of week's in the summer, then started to feel "not right"... but within a few days I was completely on target again. So I would expect the results to be fast.
