Swollen Feet And Ankles Due to Medication

Sad i'm fed up. I've recently changed my intidepressant medication, and now have more side effects than I had with the old ones. The main one is swollen ankles and feet. The other is vivid dreams every time I go to sleep. This sounds silly but it gets to me after a while. The only side effect I had with the old ones was lack of interest in sex. What should I do? Should I stay on the new ones, or go back to the old ones and have no sex life? I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions. Cheers

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Continue with new one because these side effects usually fade away with time. If problem persists then you can change it to another category.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
