Are you experiencing any side effects from your depression meds? I have just recently started on meds and I am not sure if I am having side effects or something else. I don't want to keep running to the doctor if it isn't absolutely necessary. My out of pocket expenses are ridiculous.

I'm not, for a change.  What are you taking?

I would give your pharmacist a call.  They will know the whole work-up of side effects, and can tell you fairly accurately if what you're experiencing is normal.  Honestly, they're probably more knowledgeable about it than your doctor.  Doctors only know what the pharmaceutical salesperson tells them.
