We can't specify this to the very day, but generally, if one particular AD is to be helpful, this will be clear within 2 to 3 weeks. If there is little change, then your shrink should re-assess you and try a different AD. ebcause there are intricate diferences in our internal chemistry, some of us do much better on one AD rather than another.
