When should i expect some relief. Is it time that I increase it, my dr wants me to give it one more week at this dowse. How long did it take for you to feel better and have more energy
Hi, Carlipsy! I agree to giving it a little more time as it generally takes at least 3-4 weeks to start feeling better and then another 3-4 weeks to reach full therapeutic blood levels. Your dose could be increased as high as 120mg but there is only sketchy evidence that doses above 60mg are any more effective.
It's probably a disappointment that you aren't already feeling great but try to hold on just a little bit longer. It may just be a matter of time until you're on track.
Good luck and best wishes, Wildcat
