All SSRIs have the potential to cause suicidal thoughts. That’s why, during each visit, the last of the mandatory questions is, “Do you have suicidal thoughts?” You do not say what other medications you take. Some meds cannot be taken with SSRIs if you are over 40 because of P53 (ask your doc what this means). In fact, before you see your doc, make up a list of questions you need answered. You can do your own list or find a list online. If your doc can’t or won’t give you complete information, find another doc.
