I started taking b-12 1,000 UI and vitamin D3 1,000 UI 2 days ago for my anxiety and depression. When will the vitamins start getting in my system? Or will I even feel the effects?
How long after taking a vitamin will I start feeling effects?

The Mayo Clinic performed a study and found a significant benefit to levels of depression for those taking Omega3, but it specifically has to have EPA & DHA, and at the highest levels possible. I had to purchase mine online, b/c I couldn't find the quality I wanted at any local drugstore. It's best if you buy arctic-quality fish, and a mixture of fish, rather than just the regular anchovies that many use; and highly recommended that you buy one that states 'anti-burp', because fishy burps are really unpleasant.
Justk8; I just found this,JUST A REMINDER most if not all should be taken in the morning.And please do not take more vitamin D than you are without having it checked.Vitamin A and D the most common can be toxic level in time.And vitamin B is okay many clinics like stress, stop smoking, mental health have the class taking Vitamin B-100 your body adsorbs what you need and the rest is sluffed off.OKAY here is what i just read. and also you don't always feel the effects.
Common Nutrients You May Lack
If you're deficient in a nutrient, you may feel something when you add a multivitamin to your diet. The three most common nutrients deficient in the U.S. diet are vitamin B-6, vitamin D and iron, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Both vitamin B-6 and iron help make red blood cells, and upping your intake if you're deficient may help improve energy and concentration within a month. Vitamin D is important for bone health, and its effects may not be noticed immediately, but if you're deficient you should get your blood levels checked every three months after starting a supplement, says the Vitamin D Council.Hope this answers you better
justk8; Yes you should feel effects but it could be 2 weeks to a month and don't take more than one a day unless the doctor or a doctor tells you different. But everyone is different the way we metabolise medication so it could be less or more but try and take them about the same time each day.
