I'm glad that you decided to take care of yourself
you need to be patient though because it takes a few weeks for the meds to reach the full effects. You also may have side effects but they usually go away after a week or two.
The meds will surely help with the symptoms and make you feel better but it's also important to start a therapy along with the meds. It's the best way to understand the causes of your depression and to really heal it.
Keep us posted on how you are doing, we do care.
