The truth comes out – some antidepressants make people suicidal


Decades ago, I saw first-hand evidence that paroxetine can trigger suicidal behavior in depressed people. But the drug companies, specifically paroxetine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline, did their best to hush it up. But the pressure is on now to force an official retraction of Study 329, released in 2001, which covered up abnormally high suicide rates in depressed teenagers taking paroxetine.

Better late than never, I suppose. Then again, I think that if someone is bound and determined to kill themselves, they should be allowed to do it. They just shouldn’t be pushed over the edge by a drug that is supposed to be helping them.
