Antidepressants are supposed to make you feel better, right? Think again.

According to a study published in the journal BMJ, the antidepressant Paxil has been linked to suicidal thoughts and actions. The researchers examined the medical records of more than 250 adolescent patients who had been suffering from depression. They found that patients who were prescribed the popular antidepressant were more likely to have suicidal tendencies, but that’s not all. They also found that women were more likely to experience these side effects. Go figure, right?

So, for those already on the medication, the question becomes, “Should I stop taking Paxil?” The answer – which may surprise you – is no.
