Antidepressant Use In Children

Last week, the FDA announced that children who take antidepressants face an increased risk of suicide, but some doctors dispute the claim. What do you think?

  • “That's why I give my kid St. John's Wort. At least it's not gonna make my kid kill himself, even if it doesn't work for shit.”

  • “As a despised father, I believe suicide is just a smokescreen for America's real problem—patricide.”

  • “Kids with depression see through all the bullshit that everyone else accepts. The Prozac just gives them the clarity of mind to follow through with what they need to do.”

  • “Conversely, I read that kids placed on depressants are spontaneously bursting into joyful choreographed song-and-dance routines in town squares nationwide.”

  • “What do people expect with kids being fed the Yu-Gi-Oh! and the Dragonball Z and the whole Japanese cultural imperative to save face through ritualistic seppuku?”

  • “Goddamn little brats! They want something to kill themselves about? I'll give them something to kill themselves about.”
