UsikFark: Some people will look at their lives and realize they don't like who they are and others don't like who they are. Antidepressants and therapy might turn that around, but what if they don't feel better after a year? Five years?
the801: A more detailed article about this study says "To measure suicide attempts, the researchers used records of overdose with mind-altering drugs, such as marijuana, amphetamines, tranquilizers and Ecstasy." and "For the study, Lu and colleagues used the Mental Health Research Network to collect medical claims data from 11 U.S. health plans from 2000 to 2010."so, um, yeah... wider availability of more potent marijuana compared to last century, kids being handed adderall like candy, meth moves into the suburbs...
the801: buckler:That does sound like a dubious connection, but Adderall has nothing to do with depression.it has to do with kids who are trying to get high overdosing on amphetamines and ending up in an emergency room, which this study seems to count as a suicide attempt.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: What if you're not exactly suicidal, but wish the end would come soon?
grumpyguru: Then you're probably suicidal, but just too pussy to do it. Recommend take a couple nine mils to your nearest gun free zone and start shooting for police assistance with your problem.
Shedim: Is it actually ironic that a lot of antidepressants have suicidal ideation as an adverse effect, or just an "amusing" coincidence?/obviously not very amusing if you have depression...
Darth_Lukecash: One day I woke up and the firt thought I had in my head was: I'm gonna Kill myself today.
Darth_Lukecash: That happened to me. I was taking cymbalta for serious depressaion. One day I woke up and the firt thought I had in my head was: I'm gonna Kill myself today. It was a clear, no conflicting emotion thought. Integrally had to stop and think, where did that come from. Called my doc right away.
