Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Antidepressants take up to a period of 2 to 4 weeks to work.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So initially you may not feel better and may even feel worse.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Gradually you may improve.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If your symptoms do not improve in the next couple of weeks then you should contact your doctor for further evaluation. But you should give it sometime.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have any further questions.
