"Announcing your plans is a good way to hear god laugh." - Al Swearingen

"The government today told the makers of 10 popular antidepressants to add to their labels the warning that people who take them should be monitored for suicidal behavior."

Holy Frelling Crap, people. Yes, by all means, let's put a warning on the bottles:

PEOPLE WHO ARE DEPRESSED SHOULD BE MONITORED FOR POSSIBLE SUICIDE ATTEMPTS.

IN OTHER NEWS, FIRE IS HOT, AND WATER IS WET.


Goddamn these people piss me off.

Some clarification: I like anti-depressants, when necessary. They can be a real life-saver. What is ticking me off, possibly beyond rational measure, is the illogic here. Depressed people are likely to attempt suicide. Depressed people take anti-depressants.

And these FDA people are now thinking it's the anti-depressants that are causing the suicide attempts?
