Fluoxetine

I have recently been put on Fluoxetine for depression.  I took a couple of pills and then started to feel really light-headed, faint and shaky...I thought this could be side effects of the pills so stopped taking them, but my symptoms didn't improve. Felt the same for 3 days and then it went away so assumed I must have some sort of virus and it was just bad timing. I was just wondering if it was safe to start taking the pills again or should I go and see my doctor?

From what I understand, symptoms like that are normal for anti-depressents and could last from 4-6 weeks. Sometimes you have to wait it out because the symptoms could go away once your body gets used to the medication. If not you should still let your doctor/psychiatrist know your side effects just in case.
