I had a question concerning anti depressants. I myself had a very bad experience with them, becoming suicidal, cutting etc (before the anti depressants I was NOT suicidal at all.) I just talked to my significant others mother and she just told me of a lady she worked with hung herself this past week...she was not a depressed person in general but recently she lost her mother and needed help coping with the lose. Before she got on anti depressants she was not suicidal, her family blames the anti depressants for their loss because she turned into a totally different person when she was on them. My question is how are these anti depressants approved if suicidal thought is a side effect?
I don't think that this is an antidepressant related suicide.
