Not a expert with this.. But as far as I am aware any meds which treat depression or anything like it you need to take for a few weeks for you to feel the full affect.

Hope you feel better soon

Antidepressants
For most anti-depressants it take on avg. 4-6 weeks.
Just give it some time, how long has you been on your anti-depressant(s).
What did the doctor give you?

I strongly dont believe in medicines but my mom was on medications and all it did was make her feel more depressed and very suicidle, now she is off them and doing much better, just be sure of what you are doing! Dont take my words for granted!
