I am currently taking 15mg dose and have been for four weeks. I am not noticing any improvements yet in the depression. I have taken this medication before and it did help me to get back to my normal self but I can't remember how long it took to work? Have others found that it has taken 4 or more weeks to start working for depression.. ?
Hi, grape! It does sometimes take as long as four to six weeks to feel the full benefits and six to eight weeks to reach therapeutic levels, but you probably should be seeing at least some improvement by now.
I'd let your doctor know where you're at because 15mg is a fairly low initial dose that could be increased to a maximum of 45mg/day if needed. If that doesn't help it might be time to look at other medication options.
Best regards and I hope you get some relief soon.
