Some antidepressants, ( ADs ) do, especially in the firs couple of weeks before their benefits may be obvious, potentially cause some nausea / naarheid ; some, though less so, may make one feel mildly sedated or unsteady in the same period of adjustment. Not knowing what the pill is, I don't know the significance o the dosage, but i's not unusual, if someone feels troubled by side-effects in the first week or 2, to lower the dose and let them adjust to it, before raising i to a normal dose after a week or so. ADs take around 2 weeks to dhow their likely full benefits, so before then, it's hard to judge whether they are working or not.
And though a placebo, a sugar pill does actually help a surprisingly large number of genuinely depressed people, and they can even cause side-effects if one is expecting these, I doubt that your friend is receiving sugar pills. That is, if in your question you meant suiker and not sieker !
