Does anyone here have experience with this drug? If so, how long did it take before you saw results?

I have taken it a couple different times and 5 weeks was always the magic week for me. I started noticing improvements in my anxiety sooner, although I will say it never actually helped the anxiety as much as the depression, was just a nice little edge off.

Good luck with it! It is my preferred antidepressant (although it makes me gain weight). Not too hard to wean off of it if necessary either, compared to others.
