I don't understand why you chose this Wiki entry to support your views. What does it say that you feel is important?
I am sure that drugs used to treat depression can make depression worse and lead to the precipitation of suicidality. One thing that you have not addressed, however, is the frequency with which this occurs. I don't happen to have any statistics to present. Perhaps you do. What is the ratio of lives saved to lives lost? I have reacted badly to a few antidepressants. However, I still opt to continue drug trials because the illness is so horrific. It is easy for people to call for the recall of antidepressants when they themselves are not in a state of severe depression. Lots of different drugs used for other indications have serious side effects that include fatality. How does one judge whether or not such a drug should be made available?

The measure of success lies only in how high one feels he must
climb to get there.
