Please respond should i feel any improvement by now if it will work
I wrote a response to u awhile back and somehow didn't get posted... like km and so many other's r trying to tell u med's r trial n error..you can't expect to take it for 8 days and feel a extreme difference..it takes anywhere from 4-6 wks to see if the med is going to work for u... not to be rude, but u constantly posting that u have only been on the med for a couple days is not going to change the fact that u have got to give it time... I truely feel for u as myself being somene who has been in crisis centers 3 weeks at a time, more then you will ever no how many x's... got to give the med a chance... wishing u patience...
I suffer from anxiety and have for years/decades. I also have bouts of depression and use to suffer from panic attacks. I think I was put on Paxil years ago for depression but I found it helped my anxiety too.
I also take anxiety medication too.
Have you noticed anything? Any side effects? It does take a while.
Hang in there, I know it hard.
Best thing to do is call your doctor if you are feeling really bad.

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