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??
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.
