Dosage changes--how soon do they kick in?

Posted by Victoria on April 1, 1999, at 11:59:53

What experience have you had with changing dosages of SSRIs? It has taken the usual 4-6 weeks for one to take effect at the beginning. But how quickly can dose changes take effect after that? I recently increased trazadone from 50mg to 100 mg (on doc's advice). Side effects kicked in right away (heavy night sweats, which I also had with Zoloft), so after about a week, I cut back again. But I now think that there was a "time-delay" effect on my mood--a significant improvement that began about 5 days after I increased the dose and lasted about 5 days after I cut back (then I crashed). Since my moods can be changeable anyway, it's hard for me to be sure if the improvement was the meds. So, I was wondering what other people had experienced when changing dosages? thanks!
