Check the archive of this forum as these issues have ben discussed many, many times. The SSRI family ( prozac etc ) have less side-effects than the older drugs, but these may include, eg, mild nausea, etc. There are excellent generic equivalents available, significantly cheaper, for Prozac, and Cipramil, I haven't yet checked on the others --- you could ask your local pharmacist to check on these
