Unfortunately it takes 2-4 weeks to get an effect from an anti-depressant. So don't be discouraged that you are seeing no effect. I would think that his therapist would want to wait 6-8 weeks before considering a medication change. But the waiting is hard when someone is in such acute distress.

> my husband is experiencing very acute anxiety and extreme depression. Local Doc w/ great reputation prescribed both Celexa 20 mg for 2 wks then 40 mg thereafter. Two days into it and no significant improvement in depression. Dark room, dark thoughts, etc. How patient should I be. Klonopin 1 mg/day prescribed for anxiety issue. HELP!
