Hi, Tina! Some people report improvement in as little as two weeks or so but generally it takes three to four weeks for significant improvement and six to eight weeks to reach therapeutic blood levels.
You're on the initial loading dosage so you may find that your doctor increases your dose after a few weeks.
Best regards and good luck to you. Wildcat
