Was on sertraline 50mg for 23 years and worked great until mid June. The month of the anniversary of my daughter's death and birthday. They put me up to 175 mgs and had a breakdown. I'm a poor metabolizer with some anti depressants. I have been on Effexsor for 7days. When will it start helping.
Hi, Lynn! Although some people report earlier improvement, it usually takes 4-6 weeks to feel the full benefits and 6-8 weeks for your blood level to become therapeutic.
Sorry your sertraline *pooped out* on you. That commonly happens with antidepressants after long term use.
Best regards, Wildcat
