Objective:  To measure changes in suicidal behaviours during 6 months of treatment with antidepressants.

Objective:  To investigate the possible impact of the increased use of antidepressants on suicide rates in the Italian region of Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG).
Poor response to antidepressants predicts new suicidal ideas and behavior in depressed outpatients
TLDR
When the analyses are restricted to the occurrence of suicidal ideas or attempts, the link between antidepressants and suicide risk might be more adequately explained by a poor response to antidepressant treatment rather than by a direct trigger-effect. Expand
Response to intravenous antidepressant treatment by suicidal vs. nonsuicidal depressed patients.
TLDR
Being suicidal may limit response to treatment in depressed major affective disorder patients, independent of diagnosis or overall symptomatic severity. Expand
Predictors of suicidality in depressive spectrum disorders in the general population: results of the Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study
TLDR
Features of depression were the most important determinants of suicidality in a depressive spectrum cohort, and these findings could be helpful in identifying those who need more intense treatment strategies in order to prevent suicideality and eventually suicide. Expand
Clinical correlates of the worsening or emergence of suicidal ideation during SSRI treatment of depression: an examination of citalopram in the STAR*D study.
TLDR
It is clinically important to understand risk factors, maintain careful surveillance and treat as vigorously as necessary to attain remission, and more detailed and validated measures of SI are needed. Expand
Assessment and treatment of suicide risk in
Completed suicide and suicide attempts are major issues in the management of bipolar disorders. There is evidence that suicide rates among these patients are more than 20-fold higher than the generalExpand
Assessment and treatment of suicide risk in bipolar disorders
TLDR
An extensive understanding of the psychosocial circumstances and the psychopathology of bipolar patients (including temperament) may help clinicians describe the clinical picture accurately and prevent suicidal behavior in these patients. Expand
Persistence and resolution of suicidal ideation during treatment of depression in patients with significant suicidality at the beginning of treatment: the CRESCEND study.
TLDR
Close monitoring for suicidal ideation may be needed beyond the initial weeks of treatment and even after a response to antidepressants is observed. Expand
Impact of antidepressants on the risk of suicide in patients with depression in real-life conditions: a decision analysis model
TLDR
Sensitivity analyses showed that persistence in taking ADT would be the main characteristic influencing the effectiveness of ADT on suicide risk, and public health decisions that contribute directly or indirectly to reducing the number of patients with depression who are effectively administered ADT may paradoxically induce a rise in thenumber of suicides. Expand
Genome-Wide Association Study of Antidepressant Treatment-Emergent Suicidal Ideation
TLDR
The data suggest that a combination of genetic markers might indeed be used to identify patients at risk for TESI, and need to be interpreted carefully owing to the small numbers in both cohorts. Expand

Temporal changes in suicide rates for persons treated and not treated with antidepressants in Denmark during 1995–1999
TLDR
To compare the temporal changes in suicide rate among patients treated with antidepressants with the change insuicide rate among persons who have not been treated with antidepressant during 1995–1999, a large number of patients were not treated with drugs at all during this period. Expand
Suicidality in pediatric patients treated with antidepressant drugs.
TLDR
Use of antidepressant drugs in pediatric patients is associated with a modestly increased risk of suicidality, and a meta-analysis was conducted to obtain overall suicidity risk estimates. Expand
Suicide risk during antidepressant treatment.
TLDR
The authors used population-based data to evaluate the risk of suicide death and serious suicide attempt in relation to initiation of antidepressant treatment and found a significant increase in risk of suicidal activity after starting treatment with newer antidepressant drugs is not indicated. Expand
Suicide rates in clinical trials of SSRIs, other antidepressants, and placebo: analysis of FDA reports.
TLDR
Findings fail to support either an overall difference in suicide risk between antidepressant- and placebo-treated depressed subjects in controlled trials or a difference between SSRIs and either other types of antidepressants or placebo. Expand
Suicidal behaviour in Te Rau Hinengaro: the New Zealand Mental Health Survey.
TLDR
Risks of making a suicide plan or attempt were associated with mental disorder and sociodemographic disadvantage, and major depression was the specific disorder most strongly associated with suicidal ideation, plan and attempt. Expand
Patterns and predictors of remission, response and recovery in major depression treated with fluoxetine or nortriptyline.
TLDR
The pattern of remission, response and recovery in patients with major depression who were randomised for treatment with fluoxetine ornortriptyline is described and traditional beliefs that selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressant have comparable efficacy are challenged. Expand
Six months of treatment for depression: outcome and predictors of the course of illness.
TLDR
Depression is a recurring and chronic disorder and personality factors such as a high harm avoidance score and schizoid traits were associated with a worse outcome, but demographic features, depression characteristics, depression subtypes, and comorbidity were not. Expand
Generalizability of antidepressant efficacy trials: differences between depressed psychiatric outpatients who would or would not qualify for an efficacy trial.
TLDR
Patients who would be excluded because of comorbidity or suicidality were a more chronically ill group with more previous episodes, greater psychosocial impairment, and more personality pathology. Expand
