In brief: Hashimoto
Highly variable but response to treatment should definitely become apparent in 4-6 weeks.

In brief: It depends
It depends upon what you mean by "hashimoto's thyroiditis".
Hypothyroid symptoms should clear up within 6-8 weeks of treatment with a dose that makes the TSH normal. Inflammatory symptoms (pain & swelling in the thyroid), get better in in most cases within a few months, but can persist for years in other cases.

A recent study showed that taking thyroid hormone and selenium supplements improved Hashimoto's.
