In brief: Depends on goals
Many medications do not completely alleviate symptoms such as bain, bnuring etc.
Wht you want to do is ask your doctor how much of your symptoms are likely to be helped by tje medicaion and how long and set this into goals of treatment and what to do if the meds do not resolve the amount of symptoms is the agreed upon time.
