Thanks Lar, yes very compelling. Wow, a 49% increase in sucide rates in the Netherlands
while SSRI prescriptions for youths decreased
by approximately 22% in both the United States and the Netherlands.

Results:
SSRI prescriptions for youths decreased
by approximately 22% in both
the United States and the Netherlands after
the warnings were issued. In the Netherlands,
the youth suicide rate increased
by 49% between 2003 and 2005 and
shows a significant inverse association
with SSRI prescriptions. In the United
States, youth suicide rates increased by
14% between 2003 and 2004, which is the
largest year-to-year change in suicide
rates in this population since the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention began
systematically collecting suicide data in
1979.

Conclusions:
In both the United States
and the Netherlands, SSRI prescriptions
for children and adolescents decreased
after U.S. and European regulatory agencies
issued warnings about a possible suicide
risk with antidepressant use in pediatric
patients, and these decreases were
associated with increases in suicide rates
in children and adolescents.
