    well, that can be a bit true for some meds. What can happen is that somebody in a very deep depression is not even able to commit suicide, but in the phase when they start to feel better they become able to plan and go for it.



    I do not think we should judge about people having deep depressions. It is a ugly place to be

    I've never understood why people with severe depression are given Meds that "could" cause homicidal or suicidal thoughts?

    First, very sad to hear whenever a person feels so despondent that the option is even considered.

    Regarding the question about why depression meds are ever prescribed if they might cause damaging thoughts, I guess it's a matter of the benefits outweighing the risks. Most patients feel better, at least after different meds are tried and the "right" one is found. Doctors, however, should closely monitor a patient during the initial period of taking the medication because of the risk.

    But in certain cases, the medication doesn't work, or the medication stops working, or the patient stops taking the medication for various reasons.

    A friend and I were discussing this after I told him about it.

    Drugs may have any number of dangerous side effects, including an increased risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior. For instance, some drugs used to treat other conditions, including some antidepressants, acne treatment and smoking cessation medications, have been linked to suicidal thoughts.

    (as njtom posted) Doctors and pharmacists have a responsibility to be aware and notify patients of any potential side effects of the medications they prescribe and dispense. Moreover, medical professionals and caregivers need to appropriately monitor and check in with the people under their care who are taking medications with these risks. Otherwise, these already vulnerable patients are at extreme risk of dying by suicide.

    The following are some of the brand names of drugs that have been linked to suicidal thoughts or behavior:

    Accutane (isotretinoin)
    Banzel (Rufinamide)
    Carbatrol, Equetro, Tegretol, Tegretol XR (carbamazepine)
    Celontin (methosuximide)
    Chantix (varenicline)
    Darvon and Darvocet (propoxyphene)
    Depakote, Depakote ER, Depakene (divalproex sodium)
    Depakene, Stavzor Extended Release Tablets (valproic acid)
    Dilantin Suspension (phenytoin)
    Felbatol (felbamate)
    Gabitril (tiagabine)
    Keppra (levetiracetam)
    Klonopin (clonazepam)
    Lamictal (lamotrigine)
    Mesantoin (mephenytoin)
    Mysoline (primidone)
    Neurontin (gabapentin)
    Paxil (paroxetine)
    Peganone (ethotoin)
    Prozac (fluoxetine)
    Topamax (topiramate)
    Tranxene (clorazepate)
    Tridione (trimethadione)
    Trileptal (oxcarbazepine)
    Vimpat (lacosamide)
    Zarontin (ethosuximide)
    Zonegran (zonisamide)

    We had a family friend, who went into a deep depression, commit murder-suicide while on antidepressants. He took his brother's life and then his own.

    Sad. I can't imagine the depression or whatever it is and mental state that someone is in to actually take their own life.

    Such a waste. You would think, though, that knowing their mother's condition, they would have made sure there was no gun around the house.
