Our expert says:
I think it's very important for a doctor to frankly discuss the diagnosis with us, but not in numerical terms ! ALl the meds take time to exert really noticeable effects ( only seatives tend to be felt rapidly, but they're just not very useful ). Generally, it's considered that 2 to 4 weeks is the period it takes for antidepressants to have noticeable benefits ( though earlier is of course allowed ! ) YOu will get through this and into sunnier fields, so hold on there. And meanwhile, as other questions occur to you, jot them down so you can ask the docs when you next see them, and get a reply based on their more detailed knowledge of your condition
