It's a fine line between giving the meds a chance to work and being worried/wanting to change drugs.

Go straight to the docs if you are concerned. From personal experience and reading stories on here I think that GPs are pretty used to this problem, and there are many many anti-depressants available.

I would assume that they initially prescribe the cheapest/most commonly effective. This changes with time. 20 years ago, the drug of choice seemed to be Fluoxetine (Prozac) but these days it seems to be Citalopram (purely from personal experience).

Hopefully you have a sympathetic doc.

It will get better.

Session 3 with MIND

These hours seem to fly by and we don't actually seem to be dealing with anything.. We did more form filling and box ticking today and she suggested I may want to join some 'healthy mind' sessions beginning in Feb.
