Hi, Er! Unlike the psychotropic drugs, Depakote quickly reaches therapeutic serum concentrations within about 2-4 weeks. If you're on a starting dosage though your doctor may have to rapidly increase your dose over a few weeks to reach that static level.

Er one thing make sure you take this medication close to the same times each day so you do keep a good level But it is faster acting and should start to work soon unlike other medications that can take some time.
