I'll make this the last post along this thread involving antidepressant-induced suicides. It is off topic here.

> This would be an interesting use of statistics: Treat 500 people with Prozac and 500 people with placebo. In the active treatment arm, take the number n of non-responders as a group and determine the rate of treatment-emergent suicidal-ideation. Now, take the same number n of randomly chosen non-responders to placebo and compare the rates.

This is actually a pretty dumb idea. Not far off, but... never mind. I'll think about this some more. I'm sure with sufficient numbers, statistics with power can be teased out of trial data to unmask antidepressant-induced iatrogenic suicidal ideation. Someone smarter than me - or at least not so cognitively impaired by depression - should design a study to elucidate this. We know it's there. It's just a matter of using the right tools to produce the resolution necessary to prove it unequivocally.
