Within the next few days you'll feel it working. For me it felt like a switch got flipped in my brain and I was able to tackle the anxiety.
Just to dispel some expectations. You will still have anxiety. You may still have panic attacks as you tackle anxious situations. The medication alone will not "cure" you. Does it help you tackle anxious situations better? Absolutely. But you still have to tackle them. Therapy has helped me in amazing ways in conjunction with medication to tackle each of my fears in a repetitive way so that I no longer fear it.
The medication gives you focus and relieves some of the horrible feelings. Doesn't make them go away. You have to do that on your own.
And even though you're on day 9, keep counting. I stopped counting around 15 because the count no longer mattered. I was out and about and gradually reclaiming my territory.
Good luck! Hopefully your brain will flip that switch soon
