I was diagnosed with major depression and social anxiety disorder about 6 weeks ago. I have been taking antidepressants since then, but my mood keeps changing. Sometimes I feel so happy, that I laugh and talk a lot with my family. Then a few hours later I am so depressed that I want to cry, and I don't want to see or talk to anyone. Sometimes I get so depressed that I want to kill myself. I think that the antidepressants are making me worse. So I decided to stop taking them. Could the antidepressants be making my depression worse? Or are they just not working for me?
