I am sorry it took so long to reply to your post.  I have been away for Thanksgiving to spend time with my family.
Please do not give her any extra Depakote other than what she has been prescribed.  The doctor will make the choice to go up on that medicine and likely will but it takes time.
When was your sister diagnosed with bipolar mania?  When can you recall first seeing your sister go through mania symptoms?

Did the mania seem to become onset after her trip to Dubai.  I myself have had mania brought on because of love and loss.  I had actuallt lived for a long time without having a breakthrough of mania until it was triggered when my wife left e for another man.
I don't know if waiting a long time would cause her mania to last forever although it she will be bipolar for the rest of hersomeone ho could possibly keep up with her.Finding the right medication can also prove to be veru difficult.
They have tried some pretty good combinations of medicine so far.It may just be that she is either treatment resistant  or she has not found the right edicine yet.
The big question is...
How does your sister feel about what is going on?  If she is enjoying the way she feels and she is strong minded enough then she could keep it going like that for a long time.
