Re: Side affects to antidepressants.
The big thing with antidepressants is they take close to six weeks before you feel the true effect of the med. The problem is the side effects tend to start right away but in most cases will lessen in time. Depends on the med depends on the side effect as there are some common ones but some drugs are more prone to certain side effects. There has been a big movement of late to not allow teenagers access to antidepressants as they are going through puberty and maturing their brain chemicals are constantly changing which makes it difficult to find the right drug to solve or at least lessen the core issue of depression. If you believe that your behavior is continuely on a downward slide then contact your doctor and let them know for the simple answer may be your on the wrong drug as not all drugs will work for everyone so there is a period where you seem to try out all sorts of meds before finding the right one for your brain, some people get lucky right off the bat where as others the process takes awhile.
