Thats a good point. There is evidence that some of these meds increase suicial tendancies in young children. They don't necessarily work in adults like they do in children.

For instance, benzo's in children can provoke excitation whereas adults the provoke inhibition. The same thing with antihistamines. The developing brain has different biochemical and structural makeups. Certain neurotransmitter systems develop before others and somtimes neurotransmitter systems play different roles over time.
