Detailed Answer:
Hello Nidalghanemhamdan,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic,
I have gone through your query and understand your concern towards the relief of a headache and anxiety.

I can say that it would usually take around 2 weeks for an antidepressant to start its response and it would be around 4-6wks to get its effective relief.

So, I would advise you to please be patient and continue the drugs as it has been only been 20 days since you have started.

It's highly recommended to maintain good compliance in order to get a good response.

Hope this information would help you
Feel free to ask any further questions
Thank you
