Surprise Surprise: New Study Reveals Antidepressants Double the Risk of Suicide and Violence in Healthy Adults

New Study Reveals Antidepressants Double the Risk of Suicide and Violence in Healthy AdultsIts long been exposed that antidepressants at best don’t work and at worst cause serious damage.

Yet according to a new study conducted on healthy adults with no indication of mental issues, antidepressant drugs made by the money-making pharmaceutical-medico complex double the risk of suicide and violence.

Published in the ‘Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine‘, the study’s objective aimed “To quantify the risk of suicidality and violence when selective serotonin and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are given to adult healthy volunteers with no signs of a mental disorder.”

Precursors to suicidality and violence on antidepressants: systematic review of trials in adult healthy volunteers

Design Systematic review and meta-analysis.

Main outcome measure Harms related to suicidality, hostility, activation events, psychotic events and mood disturbances.

Setting Published trials identified by searching PubMed and Embase and clinical study reports obtained from the European and UK drug regulators.

Participants Double-blind, placebo-controlled trials in adult healthy volunteers that reported on suicidality or violence or precursor events to suicidality or violence.

Results A total of 5787 publications were screened and 130 trials fulfilled our inclusion criteria. The trials were generally uninformative; 97 trials did not report the randomisation method, 75 trials did not report any discontinuations and 63 trials did not report any adverse events or lack thereof.

Eleven of the 130 published trials and two of 29 clinical study reports we received from the regulatory agencies presented data for our meta-analysis.

Treatment of adult healthy volunteers with antidepressants doubled their risk of harms related to suicidality and violence, odds ratio 1.85 (95% confidence interval 1.11 to 3.08, p = 0.02, I2 = 18%). The number needed to treat to harm one healthy person was 16 (95% confidence interval 8 to 100; Mantel-Haenszel risk difference 0.06).

There can be little doubt that we underestimated the harms of antidepressants, as we only had access to the published articles for 11 of our 13 trials.

Conclusions Antidepressants double the occurrence of events in adult healthy volunteers that can lead to suicide and violence.
