Anxiety medicines don’t work overnight. You may need to take an anxiety medicine for 4-8 weeks before you get a sense of how it’s working for you. You’ll probably see the full benefits of the medicines after 3 months.
We prescribe and ship one month of medicine at a time.
How long will I need to take anxiety medicines?
Most people stay on anxiety medicines for 12 months the first time they take them. If your anxiety returns, then one option is to stay on anxiety medicines lifelong.
