Deparoc - Paroxatine

My GP has prescribed the above for Mild to Moderate Depression - He said to see him again in 2 weeks time.

Ive taken 3 (20mg) tablets over the last 3 days and I feel terrible. Im tired, Im nauseous and my head feels fuzzy.

Initially I took it in the morning as prescribed but I need to work so switched to the following evening (ie I didnt take two in 24 hours!). But I still feel the same side effects.

The doctor said there would likely to be side effects but this feels too weird for me. Will they go away? I cant be like this for 2 weeks?

With ALL meds, the side-effects are the most annoying in the first week or so, as one's body gets used to the drug. This antidepressant belongs to a family of these drugs which can be very effective, but which can at first cause some mild nausea and a fuzzy head. The side-effects ought to fade and go away in the nexrt week or two. And generally, taking them at night should mean thatb the side-effects would be worst during the hours that you are asleep, which may help.

I have been using deparoc for the last 2weeks daily (20mg). It seems that it is not working for me, all the side effect I cant cope with it. The worst of all I feel more depressive as usual and my mind in like a roller coaster. before using this med I was fine, no nightmares, no servere depression, was sexual active, and now everything has changed. What is going on. The reason for being on this med is because of anxiety attacks and fobies, but no my whole life is changing and that is not me.

please help
