Don’t be shy in telling your doctor about any side effects. There are often ways to manage them.
For example, taking your antidepressant with food can help with nausea. If you’re having sexual problems, your doctor may change your medicine or add another one.
If you feel fatigued, try taking your medicine 1 to 2 hours before bedtime. If the antidepressant causes insomnia, take it in the morning. Many side effects go away on their own after a few weeks.
