Like others have said, it takes a while for it to "kick in" fully. My doctor and my therapist both say at least four weeks. Sounds like you started on a small dose, and I don't know how high your doctor is going to go with it, but based on what I've heard from my doc, other websites, and people on this board, it looks like 4-6 weeks after your dosage reaches the "theraputic level" is the standard amount of time.

And don't be afraid to ask your doctor about this or any other questions you have about meds.


> Hi, I've struggled with depression off and on for years and it has recently come back after remarrying into a "blended" family...dealing with new kids and with our vindictive "EX'S." I have tried 5-6 different med's to much avail and am currently on effoexor "xr." I have been on it for only 1 week so far @ 37.4 mg's and have just started taking 2 the other day. I am not crying daily as I used to which is good and seem to have a hard time sleeping as I see other do as well. My main question is I still do not feel "happy" like I was hoping to. I do not feel the joy with my kids or husband. I feel I had more emotions when I was not on med's. It feels as though my emotions are now flatlined. Has anyone else felt this way? Do I need to be on it longer to feel the joy? Is this just a side effect that will disipate? Also, has anyone experienced sexual side effects and are they long term. Any info would be "greatly" appreciated!! God Bless..Ssunflower
