you will probably experience side effects before the wanted effects, so hang in there through the stomach upset, headaches, and possible increase in anxiety. Those usually go away. If they really bother you, call your doctor. Some people notice an effect in as little as a week.
Dr. Alfredo Soto
Know that if you are treating certain anxiety disorders, like OCD, PTSD or Social Anxiety, the benefit may not be noticed for as long as 4-6 weeks
