In brief: See your doctor

Antidepressant medications often take several weeks before the even begin to start working.
If it has been less than 4 weeks, consider staying on it to see if it is effective after 4 weeks. Any worsening of symptoms, or if it has been longer than 4 weeks, would warrant a visit to your prescribing doctor.
