The suicidal thoughts are only in the first few weeks when your body has to adjust to the foreign substance in your body, this also has other side effects.

In the end it is better though

I think what you meant to say is that you're more likely to commit suicide in the first few weeks because the medication improves motivation before it improves overall mood. So you're still depressed at first but more likely to act on those feelings. The moar you know eh buddy.

Another reason is that some anti-depressants will numb down all your emotions. Good for people who are depressed from over-emotion (feeling everything too strongly) but no good for people who are already numb

I don't think I agree with that sweetheart. It's certainly not the reason for the increased suicide risk. Thanks for sharing though

Zoloft. I have a few friends on it, and am on it myself, and we're all situations of overly-emotional. There was a couple in Collie (Western Australia, couple of hours away from where I live) who were also prescribed Zoloft and they decided to murder their housemate "because they felt like it".

Overly emotional =/= Depression
I'm sure growing up is hard
