> Cindy - I am so sorry for your tragedy.

I don't know if prozac has unique risks for suicide, but I think that the period following initiation of any antidepressant is a high risk time, because people who were extremely apathetic and lacked any initiative or energy sometimes start to have more energy and initiative, but before they feel better or more hopeful. The combo created the increased risk--they may still feel suicidal but are more "awake" and "alive" to act on those feelings.

Have you had a chance to speak with other survivors for support?
