Wellbutrin started to increase my energy level within the first couple of weeks, so depending on your type of depression, that may help you. For me, anxiety was a primary issue, so the increase in energy that left me "wired" was not a good thing. Now, I'm taking a combo of Wellbutrin and Lexapro and starting to feel better.
In general, I think it can start to work anywhere from like two weeks to two months. Other people may notice a difference in you before you notice it in yourself.
