Antidepressant Warnings

JAMA. 2004;292(16):1946. doi:10.1001/jama.292.16.1946-d

An FDA advisory committee of independent experts recently voted 15 to 8 to add a “black box” warning to the packaging information of all antidepressants concerning the risk of increased suicidal tendencies in children and adolescents. Following review, the FDA stated that it “generally supports the recommendations” of the advisory committee (http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/news/2004/NEW01116.html).
