ABSTRACT
The article reports on the alert issued by New Zealand's Medsafe to healthcare professionals about an increased risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviours in antiepileptic drug recipients. Medsafe issued the alert after an analysis by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which revealed that risk of suicidal ideation or behavior is almost double in people receiving antiepileptics, and advise people taking antiepileptic drugs to consult their physicians before making changes to their drug regimen
