Everyone's different, and it's possible that your particular chemistry reacts this way to antidepressants. However, there are several different "families" of antidepressants, and working with your doctor to find one is the best way to go. Also, your doctor may be able to prescribe another medication with the antidepressants that will balance this effect out.
