Fluoxetine Decreases The Risk Of Suicidal Thoughts In Adults, While In Children No Change Was Noted

The Los Angeles Times (2/7, Roan) “Booster Shots” blog reports that a review published online Feb. 6 in the Archives of General Psychiatry “suggests there is no reason to believe that antidepressants influence suicidal thinking in kids.” For the study, researchers examined “data from 41 clinical trials involving more than 9,000 adults and children. The adults were taking either the antidepressant fluoxetine or venlafaxine. The children were taking fluoxetine.” Notably, the study revealed “adults had a decreased risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviors while taking an antidepressant,” while “among children, medications neither increased nor decreased suicidal thoughts or behavior.”
