I know some meds take up to two or three weeks to work. Do these two meds take that long?
Hi there, I'm on Lithium. Yes, it takes a few weeks for it to really start working but you should start feeling something even after a week. Give it time you should feel some relief soon. You might get some side effects. That will be a sure sign that it is starting to work. Take care!
These medicines will take a little time to build in your body so give it a week to 10 days before you expect to notice any difference. It will take up to a month to know the complete effects. And yes, you will have some side effects to deal with but hopefully the benefits will out weigh them.
Keep talking to the folks here and good luck,
it's just a matter of the medication having enough time to get into your blood stream, I personally have never taken this medication but have taken drugs somewhat like this and some of them you notice sooner than others, but after you have this for (I think she said about a week) you should begin to see a change do feel better, best wishes
