There is absolutely no reliable formula to predict which drug, like an antidepressant, will best suit which person. NONE of them have "the least" side effects in everyone - we vary in how we react, and one with few noticeable side-effects in one person may annoy another. Generally, it takes at least 2 weeks before the full effects start to be noticeable, because of how long it takes for the useful effects within the brain to become established.
However. with your type of concerns, do NOT rely on the opinion of a GP, but ask to see a good local specialist psychiatrist, for a full assessment, and then a discussion of the treatment options with someone who knows the meds and who will by then also know you well enough to provide useful advice.

Kate you need to do some extensive research online, learn about the medication available and the symptoms of your diseased state, then you need to see some doctors but make sure you see at least 7.....a number of opinons could help you make up your mind but then you may also be wearied in your counsel, either way its better than going to just one doctor and trusting them. because at the end of the age, who can you trust?
