I still have not found anything to help with my severe anxiety depression constant panic and medical related PTSD I have just started paxil 5 days ago 20 Mgs after failed attempts on other meds just need to know if or those who got relief from a medicine was it like one day you just felt better? How does it happen? Please respond
I suffer from anxiety and depression but am currently unmedicated for those issues but from past experiences, it can take up to 4-6 weeks for some of them to start working, others quite quickly. It is a subtle change but you will start to feel better once your chemical imbalance starts to become balanced; with the right medication. It takes some time but you will start to notice a difference, just not as easily or as quickly as we would like. I hope this helps you out some.
I have always found that others notice the improvements in me before I do. It seems to start slowly with gradual improvements but it is like I suddenly realize that I am starting to feel better.
Most of the time it takes 4 - 6 weeks for antidepressants to work but you should start noticing small improvements before that.
I hope that helps.
