These medicines are tools, and they need to be used correctly. I take an SSRI, citalapram, and it doesn't make me suicidal or murderous, it causes an excellent improvement in my mood. This is the case for almost everyone: that these medicines work well. We're only hearing about the outliers suffering bad outcomes.
Most people on antidepressants have good outcomes. The fact that some people have bad outcomes doesn't trump the positive outcomes in others. If it screws you up, quit taking it and blame your doctor for not figuring out you were a bad candidate for the particular drug. Prescribers need to take responsibility for monitoring their patients.
