It started working for me about two or three days into the "starter" low-dose treatment. It really made a difference when I began the preliminary dose of 7.5 mg and that was in September. It has been pivotal in my weight loss and now that I have added exercise it has been a life-changer in my mood, energy level and general outlook on life. (I have since been able to eliminate 2 prescription medications from my life and hope to get rid of more that are impacted by my weight). I am about to start on the titration stage of the higher dose to see how I am impacted by that.
I would imagine this is different for all of us. You can tell it's working when your appetite decreases and the scale trends down. I remember that if I tried eating the usual amounts, I could - so you want to start trying to eat smaller portions. I think you will notice that you won't need as much. Some of the early eating is habit.
