I beg to differ lifetime

I would completely argue against that opinion. We live in a society of accountability. It is not the responsability of the patient to find out weather or not a drug has the potential to induce sucidial thoughts or feelings, especially if a drug company knows of such possabilities. The same thing goes for vitamins, if a company knew their product was dangerous, then it would be their repsonsability to make people *fully* aware)

If a drug company has known for a while that their drug can and does induce such feelings within a subset of people, then it is the drug companies responsability to make the patient fully aware of such issues.

Its not as if a plummer can come into your home, install a broken toilate and say, sorry Lady, you should have researched me more fully.

I couldn't disagree more. I agree with Devastated mother, in that the warnings are simply insufficant, period. More has to be done.

(Ie in Brittain, doctors have been told NOT to prescribe such drugs to anyone under the age of 18. Now that is the kind of action should be in motion, IMHO, thank you very much)
