> 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.

Of course, all of us post our own opinions.

I'm not saying across the board -- I'm just saying from what I know current psychiatric practice, when I request medication changes, its noted there should be a period of time before one can appreciate any difference, and there is a period of time when side effects from a particular medication will dissipate over time, things that I have experienced, and also things that I have questioned too.
