Antidepressant side effects

Today at the neurologist's:

Doctor:  So at that dosage, nortriptyline can have some antidepressant side effects.  You're not noticing any, are you?
Me:  (confused)  What would that even mean?  Would I feel, like, extra happy?
Doctor:  Well, no, it wouldn't make you happier, unless you already had a mood disorder.
Me:  (confused stare)
Doctor:  (confused stare)  So... no, then.

I'm still unsure what an antidepressant side effect is.  But if I've been more pleasant than usual please let me know; I should probably report it to my doctor immediately.
