I am Kitt. I am wondering if the Dr. gave you 2 weeks off to adjust to the medications. If you feel you need more time perhaps your therapist and Dr could consult each other. Also you have patient's rights and if you need more time to adjust to the med than speak to your Dr. and explain your side effects.
It does take time and patience and we are from the Land of No Patience.
We want to feel better right now. I went through a lot of different drugs but we would go the 4-6 weeks to give the med a chance before trying next one.
Please try not to focus on the side effects unless you have an unusual reaction other than the ones given to you by the pharmacy when you start on the new med. It will just increase your anxiety and then it is hard to know if med is working.
Bless you. Keep posting.
