OK, he's wise to build up the Venlor dose gradually, which usually makes it easier for you to tolerate it. Some people have few or no side-effects on almost any specific antidepressant, so one tries them ans sees how they work for you.
When one does experience side-effects from any drug, they generally reduce over the first couple of weks, as your body gets used to it.
I'm surprised your doc hasn't heard of or considered Agomelatine, which would be worth trying, and usually lacks the side-effects bothering you.
