Been on lexapro over six weeks no improvement in depression or anxiety did it ever take anyone longer to see improvement than six weeks they also added two mgs abilify to boost it please respond
From what I have read 6 weeks was enough time for it to start to work. When I was on it, it started working after 3 weeks. Just a suggestion but unless the abilify helps, it may not be the med for you. Why add another med when there are many other antidepressants that may work faster and better for you.
Talk to your doc.
Hope you feel better soon.
Well, technically, 4 to 12 Weeks is what they refere to as the norm. I usually start to feel better in or around a week or so. it all depends on the person. You didn't say how long you have been on Abilify, but it works somewhat quicker than 6/12. You should probably make another appointment with doc. Is this the first time taking antidepressants?
