in a word, No.

(we are NOT clinicians but I do have first hand experience).

You have Adolescence.

Major Depression is what I have, I'm 51 and have been battling it for 40 years. :(

A Hallmark of MI is duration. A few days is viewed as Normal, a Few Months or Years is a Symptom of something more serious.

If you've only been on your med for a week you probably haven't had time
for your body to get used to it properly.

It's a good sign that it is already easing the anxiety.
