Antidepressants are supposed to mitigate the effects of depression and bring a sense of normalcy back to the lives of people suffering from the debilitating effects of depression. Unfortunately, there is good reason to believe that many drugs created for the expressed purposes of treating depression might actually expedite one of depression's most dire consequences—suicide.

Patients under the age of 25 are at greatest risk of having more suicidal thoughts (suicidal ideation) as a result of taking antidepressants. Generally, the suicide risk does not increase significantly for older patients.

All antidepressants have the propensity to increase the risk of suicide, regardless of whether they are Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) or if they are Serotonin-norepipnephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRI).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning about the risk of inciting suicidal thoughts in young adults in connection with antidepressant use.

A certain study has demonstrated that young people taking Prozac, a SSRI antidepressant, are twice as likely to suicidal thoughts as are young people not taking an antidepressant (but who also suffer from the symptoms of depression).

Although the increased risk is pretty slight, it should still be a significant cause for concern. One suicide is one too many. Our attorneys believe that it is outrageous that drugs that are supposed to steer people away from suicide might actually cause it.

Furthermore, many antidepressants also the propensity to cause birth defects.
