I was watching TV the other night, when a commercial came on for the medication Cymbalta. I wasn't paying that much attention, but my boyfriend chimed in and said, "Why would anyone take a pill for depression when one of the side effects is suicide?"

Indeed. Research shows that a small percent of depressed patients develop thoughts of suicide while taking drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which are the most commonly prescribed drug for depression.
