Did you just begin taking Depakote recently, it can take some time before you reach a therapeutic dose. It can also take 6-8 weeks for some meds to truly work. We all hear noises that aren't there sometimes, but the issue starts if you hear them all the time. They can be distracting and can sometimes be hard to know what is real or not. I would give it a few more days, and if things don't get better your should contact your pdoc for dose adjustment or other choices.
