      Thanks for commenting, @edward1. I have some friends who found that it takes a while for their mood to start responding to these medications, but I hope your doc will help you figure out whether it’s the right option or not. Is this the first one you’ve tried? I’ve heard it can take a few tries of different meds to find the right fit. Really glad you’re looking for solutions! – Nina, ProstateCancer.net Team
