Dear people who are confused why antidepressants have suicide as a side effect,
Please realize that one of the symptoms of depression is a lack of energy to do anything (including kill yourself). Sometimes antidepressants give a person their energy back before they remove suicidal thoughts, so they actually have the energy to complete a suicide attempt. This doesn't make them a less valid medication, it just means that a close watch and therapy should also happen.
Sincerely, someone who loves psychology.
