Often times, with antidepressants you'll feel worse before you feel better. The first couple of weeks are usually the hardest as far as negative side effects go, but if it persists for much longer, you may want to talk to your doctor about trying something different.
Things also got worse for me with sertraline, and I eventually switched medications. Good luck to you!
