“But his discussion of suicidality and the Black Box warning is where Rothschild’s bias shines. It’s hard for me to imagine anyone that prescribes SSRIs hasn’t seen akathisia – agitation with aggression. It’s not common, but it’s not rare either. He does what most people do, get lost in semantics, but basically is lobbying against our knowing about something that is very real. They could easily say the truth. It is an unusual reaction that is quite frightening to patients and can lead to lethality. But Rothschild takes the it-doesn’t-happen road. That seems so un-medical to me, particularly in an official, “evidence-based” guideline book. This whole presentation reeks of drug promotion don’t-worry-about-it rhetoric instead of responsible information giving.”
