|Abstract:||Conducted a meta-analysis of data from 17 double-blind clinical controlled trials in patients with major depressive disorder comparing fluoxetine (n = 1,765) with a tricyclic antidepressant (n = 731) or placebo (n = 569), or both. Multiple data sources were searched to identify patients with suicidal acts. Suicidal ideation was assessed with Item 3 of the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression, which systematically rates suicidality. Improvement was defined as a decrease from baseline at the last visit during the treatment. The pooled incidence of improvement of suicidal ideation was 72.2% for fluoxetine, 54.8% for placebo, and 69.8% for tricyclic antidepressants. Data do not show that fluoxetine is associated with an increased risk of suicidal acts or emergence of substantial suicidal thoughts among depressed patients.
