Our expert says:
With mos drugs, the first couple of weeks, as the body adjusts to the presence o this new active chemical, are when side-effects end to be at their worst. With this particular family of antidepresants, typical side-effects include an odd sort of headache ( a muzzy feeling ), a mild to moderate nausea, and a potential tiredness. These do improve. But taking new meds at night ( except when there are major reasons not to do so ) can be wise, so that these side-effects would arise while you were asleep, and with little or no troubling of you., and the tiredness, etc., might even be useful rather than troublesome, if arising at night.
Significant amounts of alcohol can exagerate the drowsiness etc., and can reduce the antidepressant benefits, so we uually adise against it's use
