Can barely stand?: I would follow the Doc's advice to take meds if I were you. Yes, postpartum depression can certainly cause physical symptoms. But the fact that you stated you could barely stand or function, so dizzy & weak abnormally indicate to me that you might need blood work and possibly other tests.
