my grandaughter is on prozac, wellbutrin and a sleeping pill to help her sleep at night. She has recently also started cutting and ssaid she would rather be dead. I was wondering if the medication could be causing the suicidal thoughts.

The negative thoughts could be part of her depression and increased by the the medications. If she learns that these meds can cause negative thoughts, it might be helpful to her. In any case she should contact her Dr immediately and tell her what is happening. If you're helping her through this hard period you coudl explain to her that these terrible impulses can be a side effect of the medication. But she should get medical attention right away. best of health to us all, PG

When I started Wellbutrin it increased suicidal thoughts but when I started the medication I new that this was a side effect that came with antidepressants so I kept reminding myself how much I loved my family and that help me get through it but that side effect is a rough one and you should contact the doctor soon and you will never know if thats just a side effect or how the person really feel. Get help. It took Wellbutrin 6 to 8 weeks to work for me and it did great job on my depression.
I hope she feels better, hang in there
