What kind of side effects are you having? Is the the first antidepressant you have ever taken? What dosage are you on and are you expected to increase your dosage anytime soon?
Granted some people do have some side effects when they start an antidepressant. It may be unable to sleep which could all depend on the med and what time your taking it, nausea, headache, unable to eat, jitters, or just an increase in being tired. Everyone is differant and reacts differantly to these medications. I am taking Effexor Xr and have been on it for a year and half; it is working very well for me. Also, with this one medication I dont have that zombied out feeling like I have had with some of the other SSRI's. Where you just feel flat and emotionaless. That is one of the worst feelings to have.
Anyhow, please do keep us updated and know we are here for you. If things get too bad for you with the medication though dont hesitate to call your doctor. K?
