I've heard that ssri's in particular are not good for some people because not all depressions are serotonin based. If that's the case, then there's a surge in the wrong neurotransmitter system, resulting in disinhibition, impulsivity, anger, suicidality....Some people respond better to tricyclics, or Norep/dop antidepressants, because it doesn't selectively blast one system

I also in general agree that the quick acting antidepressants give the person the oomph necessary to off themselves. It takes time to to restructure the depressive thinking- another good reason for combo meds&therapy....
