Re: ADs may work sooner than a few weeks
Thanks strung out.
 
I noticed that sertraline started to work within a few days, and that was with the knowledge that it would probably take weeks.
 
Furthermore, I was on sertraline on 3 seperate occasions and it worked quickly each time.
 
Duloxetine worked for me after about a week.
 
The longest wait was with fluoxetine, – 3 weeks.

Anyhow, I’m now on a mission to get on the slowest-acting AD known to humankind-the pace maker (aka VNS).
