Started taking 20mg of fluoxetine just over 2 weeks ago. Feeling so unmotivated and just want to sleep all the time. Not even because I’m particularly tired, just because I don’t want to be here. Is this normal in the beginning? Should I stick it out?

Yes, it could be called "normal" or at least not unexpected in some users during this initial period. Side effects generally resolve within two weeks or so but if this fatigue persists much longer be sure and let your doctor know.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better soon.
