I've been taking fluoxetine (prozac) for several years now, also tried zoloft and some other mental health meds (mostly for anxiety) before that.
OP it's really important to know that most antidepressants reach their full effect at 1-2 months. Even though some people claim to feel better within a few days of taking them, some don't and get discouraged. Just know that it can take several weeks to reach your new normal.
Other important stuff:
-idk if you're suicidal but some people are at greater risk of self harm or suicide in the first weeks/months because they get some energy back but their mood doesn't get any better - this is a well known side effect and you need to look out for it if you continue to take them.
-there are so many kinds of antidepressants which will work differently on everyone. If you get unbearable side effects from what you're taking, go to your doctor ASAP for them to change it and/or taper it off for you. Don't do it alone because sometimes the withdrawal can have harmful side effects too. I tried to taper off myself once by reducing the doses or extending the periods between them but it was too much and I felt like hell.
-in general, don't get discouraged if it takes a while to find the medication that works. I'm lucky I have a really good GP who listened to me and was willing to make changes, but also noticed when they were working and encouraged me to stick it out and stay on them.
-as much as it might sound ideal to be off meds, tbh this can be hard to achieve for lots of people. I've accepted that my meds are a crutch that keeps me functioning on a day to day basis, but the energy and progress I've gained since being on them isn't something to ignore. I think I would need really good therapy, coping techniques, etc. to fully come off them and I've promised myself not to try life without them until I really get all my shit sorted.
Best of luck OP and let us know how it goes.
