You must first take into consideration that every body is different.
The other thing you need to know it takes about 14 days to get into your system. Your doctor may need to fine tune it from there. You are over the hardest part. (the first 14 days)
Call your doctor and let him/her know what is happening. I know you are on the road to feeling better.

mindidorris; You have only been on the medication for 2 weeks. It takes time for your system to balance itself out. And it is hard to diagnose because obviously this is a symptom of your depression. I would say that if you are still irritable and crying in 2 more weeks then I would talk to your Dr. Just remember that you are on your way to getting better. And there are always people out there for you. There is never anything that cannot be fixed in your life. Good Luck to you and the support group is here for you.
