  • Hmm it’s interesting that you quote “206 suicide attempts in people taking antidepressants, versus 28 suicide attempts in people taking placebo” and yet fail to mention that the placebo group was about 1/3 the size of the treatment group. So comparing raw numbers isn’t appropriate, unless you’re aiming for shock value. Without going back through each individual study contained in these meta analyses, it’s impossible to draw conclusions because you don’t know the demographics of each patient population studied.
