Switched from Lexapro to Zoloft about 3 weeks ago, hoping for it to help with panic attacks. How long should I give it to "take effect"? I have xanax, but would rather not take a habit forming drug.
"Sleep, energy, or appetite may show some improvement within the first 1-2 weeks. Improvement in these physical symptoms can be an important early signal that the medication is working. Depressed mood, anxiety, and lack of interest in activities may need up to 6-8 weeks to fully improve.
Sertraline (Zoloft) | NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness"
Try to be patient and give this medication a fair trial as it doesn't work quickly. However, it is among the top three meds for anxiety/depression in clinical trials and by user reviews.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better soon! Wildcat
