Hi, Maria! Many people begin feeling better in 3-4 weeks but it can take as long as 8 weeks for blood levels to become therapeutic.
Your Mom should start feeling better very soon because she's in the homestretch now. If she doesn't, her doctor may want to raise her dose.
Best wishes to you both! Wildcat
