In brief: Dose changes

Usually folks see improvement in several days to a month or two, although the changes can be subtle as perceived by others at times, such as they smile more than usual, do a little more than they were, or their thoughts are a bit less negative, etc.
If you’re not having benefit in another couple of weeks to a month, please alert your prescriber. You may require a dose adjustment/med change.
