Everyone is different but my experience has been a lot quicker than this. I'd give it a couple more days and get in to see doc there is no need to suffer needlessly.
Sometimes it can take longer than six weeks. Give it another couple of weeks and see how you go. You may need a larger dose to have any effect.
I suppose it could but maybe, like me, you could be among the 30% of people whom SSRI's do not work for. I've tried several of them and nothing really changed that made it worth continuing. Maybe you will have to go through the trial and error of trying different ones. It can be very frustrating but some people find one that works that way. Hope you feel better soon.
Is your dose working now? If not, go back to doctor.
