Suicide and antidepressants 

Until future studies definitively clarify the nature of the relationship between antidepressants and suicide, the recommendation is to strictly comply with the approved indications, ensure close follow-up, and avoid uncontrolled and indiscriminate use of these drugs, which may put these patients under risk. Psychotherapy still remains the elective option in the case of mild and moderate depression, both in children and in adults.
