It was almost exactly six weeks to the day since I started taking Effexor that it finally "kicked in" and I began to feel normal again (whatever normal means). That is, it took that long before I felt reasonably happy. Until then, I felt able to cope pretty well but still sort of down and depressed. I hope that it kicks in earlier for you, but yes, it can take that long.
