In brief: Varies
Depends on the individual and what condition it is 'working' on.
It is not as commonly used as the newer neuroleptic drugs, but, in general, such medications may take several weeks to adequately titrate dose and assess response in an outpatient setting. In the controlled, 24-hour nursing environment of a hospital, titration can be faster.
