Depakote to zonisamide????

My 15 year old son is making the switch from1500mg of depakote to 300mg zonisamide. We are in week 1 of 3 for this transition. The reason for the change are extreme depression while on depakote. Hoping for a better outcome with zonisamide. I understand that everyone reacts differently to anti epileptic medications, but Curious if anyone has completed this particular transition and how it went?
