Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
I'm highly educated and very successful, and I was never suicidal until.....Two weeks after being prescribed Prozac for insomnia I felt worthless and hopeless. The urge to commit suicide was as strong as breathing; I shot myself in the chest. Never did my doctor or pharmacist mention suicide as a potential side effect. I survived physically after months in the hospital, but mentally I am a wreck now...remembering the attempt and aftermath are a horror, especially the guilt I feel for putting my family through such an ordeal.
From this study (4 months ago):
Recently added Lyrica and a Robaxin (muscle relaxer) for the strain to the sacral ligament.
