Not quick to judge. Been following this one a long time. Not an outright judgement. Opinion and intuition, no right or wrong. As for doctors, especially the ones in psych units, my faith is on the low side.

Medication starts and stops have trails as receptors become used to and not used to being manipulated by a particular medication, to make a very brief summary.

I do not believe the psychotropic timeline has a month or more as a yardstick globally across all drug groups. Antidepressants, yes. Antipsychotics, no. Most clinical studies show that zyprexa, risperdal, clozapine, and abilify show therapeutic effects within one week, when they work. Not uncommonly, hours or days. Could it take longer? Sure. I'm not holding my breath on it though.

Just opinion though.
