Hi, Laurie is right. You may sometimes feel a difference (for the better) before 4 weeks though if you are started on a low dose and your dose is increased during the first 4 weeks. For example, i started on 20mg, after 3 weeks i still felt completely hopeless. My doctor increased my dose to 40mg and i felt better pretty much immediately!
