Effects of Fluoxetine 20mg

I been on this drug for 2 weeks after a pretty serious depressive episode - I feel a bit better now (thankfully) but I'm a bit worried about some side effects

If you have any experience and advice I'd really appreciate it from those with experience with the drug treatment fluoxetine its brand name is Lovan my doctor said its an SRI.

One of my side effects I think  has been sleepiness. The doc says take it first thing in the morning and by 10am I'm ready to go back to bed !

There have been other side effects too - appreciate any replies
