Fluoxetine Suicidal Ideation Causes and Reviews


Suicide is the tenth most common cause of death in the United States. People may consider suicide when they are hopeless and can't see any other solution to their problems. Often it's related to serious depression, alcohol or substance abuse, or a major stressful event.

People who have the highest risk of suicide are white men. But women and teens report more suicide attempts. If someone talks about suicide, you should take it seriously. Urge them to get help from their doctor or the emergency room, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). It is available 24/7.

Therapy and medicines can help most people who have suicidal thoughts. Treating mental illnesses and substance abuse can reduce the risk of suicide.

I was on 20 mg from age 13-18 and it completely stunted my pubertal growth. I didnt grow an inch AND I hit puberty very late. I have very very short legs, arms, and fingers. This medicine is garbage. It also caused gonadal atrophy, so now I can barley have sex with girls. Its very embarassing to talk about but its the truth so I need to get it out there. This drug has destroyed my body...
