Help with anti depressant

I'm 23 year old who was diagnosed with depression in April this year. My doctor gave me bupron 150mg. And at recent visit, the dosage was increased to bupron 300mg. Im getting increased headaches and sleeping a lot after the dosage was increased. Should I consult my doctor again or is this normal?

You must keep regular follow ups with your prescribing doctor, and report any side effects you experience during your treatment. The doctor can provide remedies, and replace your current medication, if need be.

Good Luck.
