In brief: Not usually

The most common side effects are sedation and wt gain.
Often people with depression have trouble sleeping so the sedation may be a good thing. Wt gain is a bigger problem. Careful attention to diet may help or you may need to talk to your psychiatrist about another antidepressant.
