Four weeks. Last week I just started to notice a slight decrease in depression. I also have daily anxiety. I also notice an increase in motivation and appetite. Pdoc says that it can take six to 8 weeks for full resolution. I have situational depression and anxiety along with PTSD.are these initial slight signs an indication drug is working??
I recently went up in dose of Effexor XR from 112.5 to 150 a couple days ago. I've been on med for?

Hi there. I'm in a very similar situation where I have just increased my dose to 187.5 as I'm not finding enough relief on 150. Just wondering how you got on in the end? Did you change meds?
Yes, and it's so reassuring to hear a Dr giving the patient good information. 2-3 months is the window, and yes, it does sound as though you're on a good path with a good Dr.
Yes, these are pretty good signs that the medication is working. =)
I'm also on Effexor, but for GAD and depression. I also started to notice some improvement on week 3, while on 112,5. Now I am on week 9 (187,5mg), and almost depression/anxiety free.
Just hang in there. It will get better and better.
