I think Karen hit the nail on the head by saying "No it isn't like some giant fireworks, but you can expect suttle changes". It will take 4-6 weeks to reach full effectivity though so you have a little way to go yet. I think its great that you have finally found a med that suits you and that you are willing to give it a go. Congrats on that front.
Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
