Three weeks is probably too early to say whether or not the medication is working. I am on week 5 and am only just starting to notice an improvement in my condition.
Week two to three was the hardest for me with a few days of increased anxiety and agitation. It was only because I had read stories here about similar side effects that I remained hopeful.
From what I have read it can take 6-8 weeks before improvements are felt. For some it appears to take slightly longer.
I highly recommend reading the reviews here for extra encouragement.
Some people feel improvements in sleep, appetite, and energy within the first two weeks or so but you should let your doctor know that you're not feeling much better.
What dose are you taking? It may not be strong enough to be therapeutic so, again, contact your doctor for professional advice.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better quickly.
