What’s the Harm in Taking an Antidepressant?

We know that all drugs have side effects. That’s just part of the deal right? But is it really possible that an antidepressant can cause a sane person to act like a cold-blooded criminal?
The day before my flight, I had received an email from a man who I would choose to invite on stage with me that day. His name is David Carmichael and he wrote:
“I took the life of my 11-year-old son Ian on July 31, 2004 in a Paxil-induced state of psychosis and was charged with first degree murder. I was judged to be “not criminally responsible on account of a mental disorder” in September 2005 and received an absolute discharge from the forensic psychiatric system (in Ontario, Canada) in December 2009. I’ve been off all prescription drugs since September 2010. Prior to our family tragedy, I was a physical active sports consultant with no history of violence or mental illness.”
He told an audience of clinicians and patients, that day, about how it is that a normal citizen, prescribed a seemingly safe medication for work-related stress, goes on to commit a heinous act of violence against his beloved child. This academic classroom was heaving with grief when he finished his description of events.
This must be rare, right?  Totally anomalous?  ……………. Wrong.

Thank you so much for posting this.
Do you know anything about depression and spirituality? Going from baalat teshuva to nothing?

In reply:
In my humble opinion and years of experience:

First treat the symptoms of Depression – Jewishly (to clear the mind). See new post.
Then delve into why one chooses to become a Baalas Teshuva.
From going deep into the motivations of such a decision, therein lies the root of the problem that (I estimate) causes the depression. [This could be a form a guilt in not living up to one’s decisions; or guilt caused by the dichotomy between the “ideal” of one’s decision/attempts, and the “reality” of trying to live up to this “ideal.” It all goes back to the “why” of one’s choices.
