Our expert says:
Discuss this with your psychiatrist ( I believe an initial diagnosis and decisions about treatment are always best made by a specialist psychiatrist rather than a GP ) or at the very least with your GP. The prescribing doc ought to have discussed with you IN FULL all likely side-effects of the meds he recommended, which in this case could indeed include restlessness , insomnia and palpitations. There are many alternative treatments ( you don't mention the diagnosis, presumably depression ? ) not so likely to produce these side effects.
Remember too that with any such med, side-effects are usually worst in the first few weeks as your body adjusts the the presence of the drug.
