Who here waited through a long period between when they first began their AD and when they felt they were in remission/good enough?
- You know, those who took over a month before they felt anything, and perhaps longer until they felt truly themselves.
Please specify if you say you felt "better" whether or not 'better' means an improvement, or 'better' means remission. And if you could: what's your thoughts regarding long lagtimes for ADs?
I'm currently a month in on my current dose of effexor, and I'm still having my moments and doubts. I just want to calm myself, by reminding myself that there are people out there in which the 6-8 week recommendation was actually worth it, even with very little mood lift for quite some time.
I am new to this place, but I have definitely encountered it before. I'm 20, in university, and have been struggling with a depressive episode in varying intensities for the past year, plus various episodes throughout high school.
So please! Share with me the times that endurance gave you success. No horror stories/effexor hate/warnings/negativity.
