It takes 2 to 3 weeks to work

Sertraline starts to work after 2 or 3 weeks. I’m on day 2. My lithium is nearly done. Just a few more days to go. Two weeks of misery and depression. I sure hope it works.

Hey I hope this medication works well for you. I tried it in the past and it worked fast but opted for something milder as my mood wasn’t super low.

It’s an antidepressant. I take clozapine and sertraline.

Maybe you will start feeling that a little sooner @FatMama. Hope so. I came off lithium and prolixin and went to Risperdal it took a while to feel good again. And then I started the AD. Looks like you will be in good shape.

I took zoloft once for about six months and it did absolutely nothing for me. But I hope it works for you. Everyone is different.

It works fast for me. But they say it can take time. Depends on how you respond to meds.
