Last week I mentioned that my doctor had prescribed an anti-depressant that I’ve begun taking. A week in and I’ve noticed some side effects.
Now… I won’t go into the details of these side effects. But I can’t help wondering, how long do they last?
I know the true effects of the medication won’t necessarily be noticeable for four to six weeks. At that point, you might actually catch me with a smile on my face. In the meantime, I’m dealing with some physical stuff that I’m pretty sure is being caused by the medication.
Sure, I could ask my doctor, but I thought I’d take it to the internet first. Do these side effects only last temporarily, while my body adjusts to taking this medication regularly? Or is this something I have to just deal with for the life of the medication?
