"[This study] confirms that the full degree of harm of antidepressants is not reported," says Joanna Moncrieff, a psychiatrist and researcher at University College London who was not involved in the study.
"This is obviously important in the debate about school shootings in the States and in other places where the perpetrators are frequently taking antidepressants," Moncrieff says.
Taken together with other research that raises questions about the pros and cons of this class of drugs-including studies that suggest antidepressants are only marginally better than placebos-some experts say it is time to reevaluate. "My view is that we really don't have good enough evidence that antidepressants are effective and we have increasing evidence that they can be harmful," Moncrieff says.

Joanna Moncrieff, a senior lecturer of psychiatry at University College London in England, said this is the first analysis that links antidepressants to increased aggression in children.
"Doctors should be more cautious about prescribing to everyone and to young people especially, and regulators should put a warning on drug labels about aggressive behavior as well as suicide," said Moncrieff, who wrote an accompanying editorial in the journal.
Moncrieff and Sharma agreed that the data from these drug trials need to be made publicly available, so independent researchers can assess the true risks of antidepressants.
However, Moncrieff said even that may not be enough to gain a complete understanding.
"Drug company information, even that supplied to regulators, is not reliable," she said.

Some of the more noteworthy examples are Dr. Daniel Carlat's work in fighting the corrupting influence of Big Pharma on psychiatric research and education, Robert Whitaker's "Anatomy of an Epidemic", Elliot Valenstein's "Blaming the Brain", and Joanna Moncrieff's "The Myth of the Chemical Cure".
All this appears to constitute a movement to reevaluate our biological orientation, and consider a model of treatment that conforms more with our clinical reality, less with the pharmaceutical industry's ad copy. But what do we call such a movement? Dr. Moncrieff is the co-founder of the Critical Psychiatry Network in Great Britain, a collective of mental health providers who are united in addressing these issues and publically advocating for reforms, especially regarding the policies of the UK's National Health Service.
