Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve been depressed for a long time. How long until an anti-depressant begins working?

This is a great question as many folks starting psychiatric care have been depressed for some time. They are eager to feel better. Typically anti-depressants begin working between 4-8 weeks. But, everyone is different and some patients feel better more quickly. Also, non medication interventions can have an immediate effect. This could include working on sleep hygiene, diet and exercise. We strive to combine multiple modalities: medications, personal interventions, brief supportive therapy, and others.

I struggle with poor attention and think I have ADHD. Can you help?
