  1. Mike, most of the anti-depressants have depression as a side affect. The problem is the various chemical imbalances that are occurring and the way your body reacts to the medication that seeks to change those imbalances. That is why the first week or two are low dose and monitored, then reassessed to see if another medication is better suited.
