A new article from CEPUK:

 

New study: antidepressants significantly raise the risk of suicide in the treatment of depression for adults


 

Quote

 

The study found that approximately 1 in every 200 people who start treatment will attempt suicide due to the pharmacologic effects of the drug. This number is significant given around 7.4 million people were prescribed antidepressants in England alone last year, and given international estimates which suggest around 1 in 20 suicide attempts will end in death.

 

 

 

 

CEPUK state that this is a "new study", but it's presented as a letter to the editor in the journal of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics. 

 

The full letter in the journal is here:

I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice, but simply information based on my own experience, as well as other members who have survived these drugs.
