Welcome to the depression forum. I am so glad that you have joined us.
It takes antidepressants a good four to six weeks to reach their full effect, so yes I would stick with it. If the side effects become real bothersome, I would consult with the doctor to see if this is the right medication for you. It took me quite a few different tries before they come up with the right med for me. The side effects were always intolerable. But it sounds like the cipralex is working well for you already.
Best wishes and keep posting.
