Hi Friend, Your fear about side effect is quite genuine due to the symptoms that may appears after taking medicines. If you notice such symptom kindly inform your treating doctor to advice on the change of medicines. Just be aware that medicines are just one part of any psychic treatments and mostly they help in suppressing or controlling the emotion. Still you need to work at mental level to remove source for such anxious or depressive thoughts. Moreover there may be side effects due to various factors like body condition, existing alignments, food habits, lifestyle etc So in parallel, you need to follow certain self or guided behavioral therapies, changes in lifestyle, Dietary, exercises along with counseling.
