I almost feel like it's working but then I go downhill again. Is this common?
Try to give it another 4 weeks to see if it is going to work for you. Some people have reported their meds taking up to 3 months.
Hope you start to feel a steady improvement soon.
Depends. What particular meds are you referring to ? Some are quick-acting, others take 4-6 weeks to start working? Are you on antidepressants, or anti anxiety meds? Big difference in activation time.
Its GOOD that sometimes you are feeling better. A couple more weeks you will most likely have the meds leveled out in your system and feel much better. Hang in there, sounds like you are on the way to better things. Best wishes, ChelleKay
I agree with the other contributors. The frustrating part of the process is waiting for the medication to kick in. It can indeed take about three months although we would hope it starts earlier. Just hang in there as all of us support you. John
