Not interested in topic of PhD

I am currently taking a PhD in something I'm not interested in. I am really upset that I made the wrong decision about the topic but I love the city where I am. I'm not sure how hard the decision will be to change. Should I start looking for other PhD's here. I also moved away from home and I am worried that I am still in the settling in period, it's been 5months already. I know for sure that I would love to be researching another topic and I also have many thoughts about doing medicine. I got a great opportunity here and funding and I'm afraid I won't get the funding or place here again. Should I stick with the PhD for 4 years as a means to an end, but I am really unhappy with the topic and already loosing motivation.
