Advice & Tips: I was put on this in high school after my boyfriend at the time told the school counselors (at his all boys and my all girls Catholic schools) that I was thinking about suicide. I was also in therapy for most of my life with several different professions just in this period of time. I can't recall when I did this but it was about 2 years after starting treatment that I tried to kill myself on the last months worth of antidepressants before I had to get a refill script. Needless to say I was completely taken off the meds. My parents never knew that I was still determined to end my life.
