Dr. Jari Tiihonen and his colleagues,University of Kuopio and Niuvanniemi Hospital in Kuopio, Finland said, "most important risk factor for suicidal behavior" anyway the risk involved in taking antidepressents in uncertain,"it has not been possible to demonstrate that the use of antidepressant medication decreases the risk of suicide,"they added.

The research included 7,466 males and 7,924 females,among whom 602 suicides, 7,136 suicide attempts required hospital attention and during follow-up 1,583 deaths were recorded. 9 percent risk of complete suicide was low in people on any kind of antidepressants.

Reasons for increase in nonfatal suicidal methods is explained by, "by a decrease in the incidence of violent and more fatal methods of suicide attempts, such as hanging and shooting."
