> Can we die from this? Please tell me? Like if I have surgery?

I have not encountered in the literature report of SRIs by themselves causing fatality presumably from bleeding tendencies. Please be aware that bleeding tendencies from SRIs that I mentioned in previous post were from anecdotal reports. On the contrary, in a study done in England regarding the potential for SSRI-induced gastrointestinal bleeding, the conclusion was that, when compared to other drugs, SSRIs were no more likely to cause gastrointestinal bleeding than the other drugs.

On a related note (a positive one), in one study, it was suggested that SSRIs may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) in patients with depression via serotonin-mediated platelet effects (decreases platelet activation). Platelet activation (or release) is known to be increased in patients with depression and is suspected to play a role in these patients' higher risk of CHD.
