If I switch from one of the same classes of antidepressants such as lexapro to zoloft, will zoloft work faster than normal if I had not taken a antidepressant previously?
If you switch antidepressants does the second one work faster?

Hi, Bob! No, unfortunately, it will still take 1-2 weeks to start seeing improvement and 6-8 weeks to feel the full benefits of the medication. They all have different chemical formulations.
