In brief: Weeks

The answer is a bit vague, because patients often start deliberately on lower-than-needed dosages to minimize side effects.
The "clock starts ticking" when you get to a therapeutic dose, which can vary from person to person but usually is in the range of 1.2-1.4 mg/kg/day. Then, it can take 2-4 weeks to start showing benefit, with continued enhanced benefits potentially up to 6 months.
