It didn't help me, but I have TRD (whatever that really means!) ... but it really seems to be helping my sister. Two weeks isn't long; I think she was on it 4-6 wks before it kicked in (am pretty sure she's at 20mg too). So, like the others say, just try to be patient a little while longer -- it is supposed to be a pretty good one.
