If you take depakote and feel normal and at peace for the first time ever. does it prove you have a mood disorder ?

No: No. You would have to have the symptoms of mood disorders. Even people without the criteria of mood disorder feel better on Depakote for some reason. I have a few epilepsy and migraine patients who feel better on it.
