But children and adolescents in the study who were taking antidepressants were about 50 percent more likely than those not on the drugs to try to kill themselves. And they were about 15 times as likely as those not on the medications to complete the act, although the number of suicides was too small to draw definitive conclusions, the authors cautioned.
The problem here is that the depressed are more likely to commit suicide or other self destructive acts.
Those receiving anti-depressant medication are therefore deemed more depressed than others and therefore, more likely to commit suicide.
