Usually it takes between 2-4 weeks, depending on the medication. My advice is to remember that medication can be helpful, but it’s not a fix. There will always be ups and downs, and sometimes you may feel as if the medicine is not working well enough in times of struggle. I know how hard it is (I’ve tried the majority of SSRI’s and anti anxiety meds, and it can be very frustrating). Know you’re not alone!
Well put, are you currently on taking anything?
@KC_88 Yes, I’m on Pristiq for anxiety (it works for me, definitely better than Effexor- I do NOT recommend Effexor), Trazodone for sleep- definitely works for me, klonopin for night anxiety- eh, PRN Ativan- definitely helps but makes you sleepy
@KC_88 In all honesty, 🍃🍃 is the only no-fail for me when I have terrible anxiety or anxiety attacks. Only Indica though, Sativa can trigger mania
