Talk w/your doctor: I'm glad your depression is better. That's good news! To address any problems with your antidepressants themselves, it's best to talk with the doctor who's working with and prescribing for you. I don't know what medications you're on, and it's possible doses could be adjusted or medications changed if need be.

More serotonin: Ssris increase the amount of serotonin in the synapes between the neurons in your brain. This increase in serotonin helps depressive symptoms, showing an effect in 2-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks for full effect. Short term side effects include mild nausea and headaches for a few days to a week, while more long term side effects include increased appetite and decreased libido and delayed ejaculation for men.
Mostly reversible: Most of the adverse effects with anti-depressants are felt to be reversible, as in resolve when you stop the medication.
Depends: It depends on which antidepressant, and which side effect. Often the side effects are noticeable before the benefits, so it is important to have a good relationship with your doctor so you can ask questions and stick it through until the benefits kick in.
SE, how soon?: Most antidepressants are known to cause some uncomfortable, usual non-lethal although very uncomfortable. SE are more frequent at the early stage, usually the first week. Less frequently there is total intolerance, and an alternative SSRI could be more tolerable. Late side effects are less frequent.See 1 more doctor answer
Can someone be on antidepressants his whole life? Can this actually happen? Long term side effects?
Very much so: Some people have mood disorders that are "temporary" and are fine with just short term medications. Other people do require long term, even life long antidepressant therapy. It basically has similar effects as short term therapy. You should always feel comfortable reviewing with your psychiatrist possibly stopping or decreasing medications. Again every person is different. Best of luck.
Not a rare problem: Most antidepressant meds have adverse event potential, but since various meds have somewhat differing profiles, might propose consideration for a different drug. Discuss your reactions with your doctor and make some decisions.
Are there any antidepressants that are 1) non sedating and 2) without risk of side effects that include seizure disorder? If so, which ones?
Yes & no: Ssri type antidepressants which are the most specific for the commonest biochemical defect in depression, low serotonin, are least likely amongst antidepressants to cause sedation, other than wellbutrin (bupropion) which rarely has sedative properties. All antidepressants have risk of induction or provocation of seizures--especially wellbutrin (bupropion) and tetracylic antidepressants. Ssris are the least likely cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Rather quickly: Side effects are usually quick to appear within days or weeks but sexual side effects are usually later.
Disorientation: The word confusion is attempting to describe a disconnect between thoughts and understanding that can lead to a feeling of disorientation. It also involves at time a lack of awareness of the time, place and situation that you are present dealing with. Some antidepressants may lead to this feeling.See 1 more doctor answer
