Treatment works: Most side effects will be gone in a few weeks.
There are less expensive antidepressants which should be able to be adjusted so there are not bothersome side effects. I hope you won't give up on treatment because of one bad experience with medication.
Both medication, therapy or both can be effective treatment. Treatment does work
