Antidepressant drugs quadruple risk of suicides, research shows

The very first week you start taking antidepressant drugs, your risk of committing suicide quadruples. Antidepressants have long been accused of actually causing suicides and violent behavior, and now research is proving it.

It may be news to you and me, but it's not news to antidepressant drug manufacturers: they've known about the increased suicide risk for years, but they chose to suppress that information and hide it from public view. It's no secret why: if the truth got out about how dangerous the drug side effects are from antidepressant drugs, the public might call for their removal by the FDA, and that would hurt pharmaceutical profits. So instead of risking a drop in revenues, they just bury the research data and pretend that antidepressants are perfectly safe.

Don't forget that the high school students who went on a shooting rampage in Colombine were on antidepressant drugs. So was Phil Hartman's wife when she murdered the actor. Time and time again, the most outrageous acts of violence in our nation are frequently linked to people who use SSRIs (antidepressant drugs).

The drugs analyzed in this study included Paxil, Prozac, Elavil and one other antidepressant. Astoundingly, one newspaper reporter -- probably bought off by the pharmaceutical companies -- actually reported this same story with the headline, "No increased risk of suicides from antidepressants" and went on to explain that since all the SSRI drugs had equal risk, there was "no increased risk." How's that for bad journalism and sloppy math? In reality, all the antidepressants increased risk of suicide by 400% compared to people who show the same symptoms of depression but who weren't taking the drugs. It's a huge study, too: records of 3 million patients were scrutinized to reach these conclusions.

So here's the question of the day: if these drugs cause people to commit suicide and commit violent acts against others, why does the FDA continue to approve their sale? If the FDA is really protecting the public, shouldn't these drugs be recalled or at least strictly limited?

Of course they should. But once again, the FDA seems far more interested in protecting drug company profits rather than protecting the public health. And so these drugs continue to be prescribed by the millions, and patients continue to commit suicide and commit acts of violence against others. It's all 100% approved by the FDA. Isn't modern medicine amazing?
