Been taking 10 mg of citalopram but the doctor put me on 20. How long will it take to feel relive?

Hi, i was started on 20mg, and then increased to 40mg and i felt better almost immediately. However, some people report that it can take another 4 weeks to reach full effect (after a dose increase) and give you sufficient relief. I don't think this is common though. It's difficult to give you a time period, but hopefully within about a week you should be feeling the difference
