There's really no clear answer for that - so much depends on the exact nature of the mood disorder, and how untable it is. If you were, for instance, having episodes roughly every 6 months, it might take a year or more to see if you had less than usual, or less often. If you had problems every month, in 3 months or so, it'd be pobvious whether this was improving.
So the sort of effect one would be wanting to notice, would be different.
If you car was breaking down every 3 months, how long would it take before you'd feel sure the new mechani was looking after it better and there were less breakdowns than usual ?
In a sense, though such drugs can be very valuable, its harder to appreciate the benefits in that, in a way, you'd be looking for the ABSENCE of further frequent attacks, rather than something more obvious
