Abstract: Osler and colleagues published a cohort study investigating antidepressant medication and suicidal behaviour and violent crime in patients and conscripts. They report an increased incidence rate for both events before and after treatment initiation when compared to the follow‐up period. They conclude that there is likely no causal effect of antidepressants on either of the two endpoints, because the rates between treated and untreated individuals did not differ substantially at each time‐point and the rates of both events did not increase in the antidepressant group after treatment initiation as compared to the pre‐treatment time period.
