This is actually one of the side effects of the drug.
Are you taking it on the days prescribed? Are you taking it at exactly the same time for each dose? Those are things that can affect how well the medication works.
I would wait about four more days and then contact the doctor.

Some medications can take several months to "kick in" but this shouldn't be the case here.
