Just to know how many time needs to full effects. Im taking for 5 weeks but I dont feel very well yet.
I was on maternity leave when I started Lexapro but I started 8 weeks before I went back to work and I felt that was enough. 6 weeks would have been fine for me. Any less and I don't think it would have been great. Coming off Lexapro, I only had one day off work, and pushed though a week of tough times. It's much easier coming off Lexapro than going on to it!
Hi, Brenda! Some people begin to feel the effects at 3-4 weeks but it usually takes 6-8 weeks to reach the full therapeutic blood levels. At 5 weeks, if you're on a low starting dose, it might be time to speak with your doctor about a dosage increase.
Best wishes to you and good luck. Wildcat
