Statement from Antidepressant Company on David Carmichael’s Case

Mr. Carmichael's case is clearly a tragedy, but medicines like [this] are an important option for treating depression. 


Patient safety is our priority and there is no scientific evidence that [this medication] causes homicidal, psychotic, or violent behavior. 


We continue to monitor [its] safety and make our research available. It is important that patients do not change how they take their medicine or stop taking it altogether, without speaking to their doctor.
