   Before starting you on anti-depressants you need to be evaluated by your doctor. This is to look for the cause of your symptoms. Sometimes hormonal imbaXXXXX XXXXXke hypothyroid can cause symptoms like yours. Depending on the cause you would need to be started on medicine. So, I would advise you to consult your doctor for an evaluation and blood tests like thyroid function test etc for proper diagnosis and treatment.
