    HI Rachel, I started setraline and my symptoms prob started to improve aboutwk 6 I think and they say it can take longer for others. I am going back to get my dose increased as my issues are creeping back. Its good that you can spend time with family and not be alone. I wish you well and hope it settles soon for you but never be afraid to revisit your doc to check about dosages and timeframes etc. Even call the surgery.

      Thing were slowly improving I think and I remember going for a 6 week check actually and stating that it had improved but not completely and was told to give it longer. I've made an appointment for tomorrow about my upping my dose. I would either give it a few more weeks or go back and question your doc and I have also heard that when you up your dose it can be a similar time frame to see the extra improvements. Let us know how things go smile
