Brief Answer:
Wait a month

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your response.
I have read your message.
I think I should tell you that it takes 6 months for Antidepressants to take full effect.
So I think it is appropriate time to just wait in case the effects are completed.
The tiredness and drowsiness is frequently a part of depression.
I think you should wait for another month.
If symptoms persist adding another medicine will help.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information contained in this message will be able to help you find the best solution for your problem. Best of luck. Dr Mittal.
