if you're not able to get to class or work after taking the medication for months, then there is a problem.
However, it does
take some time for the medication to take effect. When you're put on Lexapro
or similar anti-depressants, you should have an experimental time limit of up to 6 months, to guage whether you are responding well to the Lexapro. Even after a month, you're still adjusting to the medication.
