My doctor told me to take 25 mg of sertraline daily at first then after two weeks bump that up to 50 mg daily. I was curious to know when will I start feeling the effects of this medication?
It will take at least 6-8 weeks until the medication take full effect. Some may experience effects during the 2nd week. You should be aware that antidepressants usually cause side effects during the first few days or weeks. These side effects are common and should subside within a couple of days to weeks once you continue taking the medication. Be patient, you’ll feel better soon.
Stay Strong & Happy Holidays,
