I am no expert, but when I have changed meds in the same class I had no problem. You have changed to a different drug group "tetracyclic antidepressant" which I have never taken. My former GP discussed prescribing this med for me once, he claimed it to be very effective and having low sexual adverse effects. I seem to be the person that acquires all of the side effects listed on a medication, and that includes the rare ones too. All you can do is have some faith that it will help and hope for the best. It seems that anti depressant medication prescribing is like a trial and error formula. You may need to try several meds before you hit the one that's right for you. You may also have to accept mild side effects for your overall wellbeing. Best wishes!
