I don't recall the details of what I said last time, but I would indeed say that ALL side-effects tend to improve after a week or two. But some people do indeed experience extra bad dreams while on some ADs, and then theyr GOP should have the good sense to change them to a different AD, preferebly to try one of a slightly different mode of action, and see if this doesn't help the depression but without the bad dreams.
I have never heard of a GP who only knows 2 AD drugs, and even facd with your problems, insists that you must take either on or the other, and no other. That's ridiculous.
Especially as you are feeling suh despair, URGENTLY arrange to see a good local PSYCHIATRIST, a genuien specialist in these problems, who will re-assess you and make a wiser and less narrowly limited choice of treatments, which may well include CBT counselling as well as a different AD.
