@Deedoherty2 Yes. This happens.
@Deedoherty2 @YouTube "During the last 8 years I have met and worked with many people who were deeply suicidal. Some of these people have now, tragically, ended their own lives..
This has led me to explore extensively what is going on especially in the lead-up to suicides."
@Deedoherty2 A Deadly Aversion to Critical "A" Words?
"Why do suicide prevention initiatives continue to talk about ropes and balconies yet refuse to discuss a smoking gun called akathisia?" @AkathisiaRx @akathisiaalli (see thread!)

@Deedoherty2 @AkathisiaRx @akathisiaalli "There is no doubt that psychiatric medications can cause previously non suicidal patients to attempt to take their own lives. Most if not all psychiatric drug patient information leaflets carry this warning." Dr Ed White
@Deedoherty2 @AkathisiaRx @akathisiaalli "The medical and scientific professions persist in ignoring the potential contribution of psychiatric drugs to suicide"

@Deedoherty2 @AkathisiaRx @akathisiaalli Adverse drug effects #ADRs and #suicide
"As a UK campaigner on prescribed drug dependence, withdrawal and iatrogenic harm for the past five years, I am filled with dismay by the current approach to suicide prevention." Fiona French

@Deedoherty2 @AkathisiaRx @akathisiaalli "We need more honest conversations about psychiatric drugs and #suicide.
1997 was the year I became acquainted with akathisia except I didn’t know it at the time. #Akathisia wasn’t part of my vocabulary." Alyne Duthie
@Deedoherty2 @AkathisiaRx @akathisiaalli "A #paradoxical reaction or paradoxical effect is an effect of medical treatment, usually a drug, opposite to the effect which would normally be expected. An example of a paradoxical reaction is #suicidalideation caused by #antidepressants." @medsconsult bmj.com/content/366/bm…
@Deedoherty2 @AkathisiaRx @akathisiaalli @medsconsult "The recently published review ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31370036 is the first one of its kind to implicate certain medications as a cause of [#suicide &] violence due to pharmacogenetic polymorphisms and neurotransmitter disruption."
