Hi, just wondering how long it takes for this medicine to take full affect. Ive just gone up to 50mg after 1 week and am currently upto day 10. Has it helped anyone with intrusive thoughts? Thank you :)
Viggy87 I have seen many more people benifit off of this medication for OCD problems when all the regular ones would not help... It does work as far as blood level like many others,You can start it and start feeling better little by little but to reach the full peak blood level your are looking at 6 to 8 weeks so like other medications that is the one problem but well worth it if it does the job As i said yes with the intrusive thoughts and the heavy ocd etc..out of the medications they use for this it has been very effective good luck and stick with it..hope it works out for you to...
I have been on this med since May. Started off with 50mg per day and am now up to 100mg. It started helping my intrusive thougt problem within the first two weeks and now the increased dosage is even better which helps my anxieties. I also take small doses of Ativan each day and am doing well on both so far!! :)
Here is what it says after you have had a dose change this is what to expect to reach the full blood level of the new dose... chuck1957 Steady-state plasma levels may not be achieved until 2 to 3 weeks after a dosage change. Therefore, after initial titration, it may be appropriate to wait 2 to 3 weeks before proceeding with further dosage adjustments. So your looking at 2 to 3 weeks from the last time the doctor raised the dose..
Hi Veggie with this class of drug it can take as much to 4 to 8 weeks now we do get some benifits but you don't get to the full blood level until your on it from the time i stated and i think we talked about this drug and i know when i was working yes i seen many people really do great on this medication when no others were working..hope this answers you and good luck..Also if needed they can raise the dose that you are taking... OK have a nice weekend chuck1957
