Everyone's different: If there was one answer to this question, everyone would be given the same antidepressant! Instead we choose antidepressants to minimize the side effects most likely to disturb that specific patient.

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.
That depends: Does the individual have typical or atypical depressive symptoms? I think you might have been the person who had difficulty on Lexapro - that often has less side effects for people. However, just because you had significant side effects on one selective serotonergic reuptake inhibitor does not necessarily mean that you won't be able to tolerate others.
