In brief: Hard to tell

I would talk to your psychiatrist if you feel the antidepressants aren't working or if you would like to supplement them with some therapy to figure out what it is that is bothering you.
However, don't feel discouraged if things should be okay and you still find yourself unhappy, transitioning into good things like a new job or new relationship can also lead to stress and anxiety.
