Hi I'm on day four of paxil after switching from lexapro which I took for over 7 weeks and it didnt help for my depression anxiety or PTSD. I know it's only day 4 of paxil but I feel no improvement. I have had so many unsuccessful attempts with meds I'm so discouraged how much longer before I may feel better with this
Hello theresa06. It might be awhile before you feel any long term benefit. Psychiatric drugs work much different than others such as a antibiotic, hypnotic, pain etc. The norm per say is four to six weeks. And many people seem not to find the combination, immediately. It can very well be a long, difficult, process. Often a combination of two or three drugs might be prescribed for a diagnosis. Hopefully, you will do well on the Paxil. Patience and hopefully, you will be seeing light at the end of the road. Regards ledge

For those who found relief with an antidepressant did you just one day start feeling good or was it?
