Sodium valproate therapeutic dose and blood level

Recommended Posts

I have been taking valproate 1400mg for the past week. My blood level was taken yesterday.  It is 74 mg/l.

Does anybody know how long it takes at a therapeutic level to take effect. 

My pdoc usually goes by clinical response rather than blood levels but I wasn't responding well enough on 1400mg so he ordered a test.

Do you know if 74 mg/l is enough to do the trick? Do I need to be on the dose of 1400mg (blood level 74mg/l) for a while to see an improvement.
