Default Re: First time to a psychiatrist..

With all anti-depressants there is the risk that suicidal thoughts will increase and/or intensify. I don't really know what triggers this from occurring, but it might steam from the realization that one is on medication to help with the depression. Most people who suffer from depression, myself included, never thought they had a problem to begin with. Consequently, the need for medication signifies a weakness of the individual on the meds. It seems to be a reciprocal effect, in which the meds are prescribed to help, but some people with depression don't see the drugs as helping, or rather needed agents.

With that in mind, my advice to you is that if you do experience increased or amplified suicidal thoughts that you tell someone, your therapist in particular, what you are feeling.

It was a beautiful letdown
I was trying so hard to fit in
Fit in, until I found out...
I don't belong here
