I have a family member who has recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder type 2. The psychiatrist has prescribed them 1000 mg of Depakote a day, what is the average prescription if anyone knows? Is this a lot or only a minor dosage?

The news came as a shock to all of us (his family), while we suspected he was always prone to depression... we never knew this... Anyway, it comes out that it's been really bad and he has hurt himself, and spent all his scholorship money and nearly taken his life on more than one occasion. We just want to make sure he is all right and taken care of.
