The problem with studies like this is that they are looking at the results of a group, not individuals. I guarantee you, there were individual people in those groups that did indeed experience suicidal stuff on whatever med. But that doesn't count, because they were only maybe, what, guessing, .1% of the entire group. They still would have ended up on the end of a rope, regardless the researchers said the group as a whole did not show suicidal stuff.
And who behind the scenes paid for the study? Who were the actual people in the back room organizing this thing and getting it going? Why did they do it?
You have to be suspicious. Of course they want to change the rules of the game and claim the meds are perfectly safe because this is the worst economy in our lifetime, they don't have any new big blockbuster drugs, and they need to increase sales! Take that black box warning off and watch sales go up.
Not making any judgements or accusations here, just sayin, I think there is more going on behind the scenes that is either not readily apparent in the study's final report or hidden completely from public view. For example the multiple failed trials of Paxil that the FDA ignored, only looking at the fewer amount of trials that fit their intentions.
