Our expert says:
This is something you need to discuss with your psychiatrist ( always the best place to start treating a significant condition, though a GP can valuably carry on once the diagnosis has been confirmed and the treatment chosen ).
ALL antidepressants can have this annoying side-effect in SOME people, but none do it in everyone, so it is a skilled job to select the one AD best suited to your particular chemistry.
All antidepressants take around 2 weeks or more to produce their full effect, so though early progress such as you report might be maintained, IF you remained on an effective drug, don't be discouraged if your mood dips a bit before it improves again more lastingly.
If a real depression has been properly diagnosed, one usually needs to remain on the right drug around 9 months to improve the chances of the benefits lasting.
