The antidepressants seem to work differently on different people. They do have different side effects too. The only way to tell is to talk to your doctor about

a couple of weeks to go away. It isn't easy. But if you really want help, you should talk to the doctor about
I want to add that I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my first husband to lung cancer in 2000. I know it isn't easy and takes time and patience with yourself to get through this. Be good to yourself.
