You are right to be worried about your mood swings and your thoughts. Talk to the doctor who is prescribing your medication. It could be that the diagnosis of depression is not totally accurate and/or the medication you are on is not adequately treating you. I also recommend that you see a counselor/therapist to get a better assessment and to help you manage your symptoms. Therapy can help you develop the skills to better manage your symptoms and your life.
