It can, but I don't know how long lived the effect is. I remember reading a comparison between some of the effects of lithium and depakote.

Depakote caused a release of dopamine in the frontal cortex wherase lithium was devoid of effect. Lithium decreased dopamine release in the neucleus accumbens, ie pleasure centres.

I will try to find the study so you can make of it what you will.
