Anti-Depressant Blamed For Woman’s Suicide—Investigation Launched into the Drug

After a mother of two committed suicide because of being increasingly dependent on an anti-depressant, an investigation has been started into the drug.
Last year, on October 25, Yvonne Woodley, 42, was discovered by her husband Kevin hanging in the loft of the family home in Solihull, West Midlands. Before six months of her death, her Citalopram’s dosage was increased by six GPs she consulted. The drug had a reversed affect. It made her more disturbed and she often used to express her wish to die.
