Description: A well-rounded team of experts demonstrates why flawed adverse event reporting and labeling have contributed to a suicide epidemic worldwide, putting patients and pharmaceutical companies at increased risk. After offering an overview of the current landscape and weaknesses in key programs, the team provides potential solutions, including:
  • Intervention trials using prospective and systematic measurement of suicidality that more clearly delineate the relationship between suicidal adverse events and medication treatment;
  • Consistent and systematic assessment that provide more meaningful data within a study, as well as across studies, improving pooled analyses;
  • Understanding that decreasing false positives and debunking false notions of risk are as important as knowing about risks that exist; and
  • Including suicidal subjects in trials to increase generalizability and avoid unnecessary exclusions.
