    Jim, this is an SSRI anti-depressant. Doctors have a tendency to tell patients that they will work within 2 - 4 weeks.

    In fact, some of them take 12 weeks to kick in properly.

    Don't lose hope. They're starting to work and the doc can up the dose to 100mg if necessary.

    You'll be fine.
