Hi. I'm doing an essay on how certain antidepressants can lead to Suicide. I have experianced this and I was wondering if anyone else has. I would like to know what exactly happened. Thank you for your help.

User avatar Hi Ryansgirl,
Here is a web link with a wealth of information regarding FDA's black box warnings, different antidepressants including the companies that manufacture the medications, etc.
I hope you find this somewhat helpful.

Thanks for the URL it helped a lot. I was on Prozac and I had to take myself off of it without my doctors consent. After I had been off of them, he said it was okay.
