10 my a day a week to see effects?

I was told by the psychiatrist it would take a week to kick in.

It's 2 am and I'm bubbling over at discovering this forum but really tired. The one week delay also doesn't match what people say about it.

So what gives? Is it going to get more noticeable?
I spent a pretty unproductive morning watching hamsters...and still misplacing my stuff

Stimulants are noticeable right away. It could be too low of a dose.

I was told to keep at 10mg per day for a week and then up to 10 mg 2x per day after that.

Its not supposed to take a week to kick in, at least not for the instant release versions. Very weird that your psychatrist would say that...
