Are Most People On Antidepressants On Here?

I'm wondering this because I am and some days I have to take Valium just to be able to function. When I read how others can't even get out of bed, don't shower etc I wonder if their meds aren't right for them or if this is something that happens while taking meds.

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Yes. I wish I would have never started them.
