Change her doctor immediatly when a person talks about suicide everyone including the doctor should take this in the most serious manner. The doctor that she sees should be fired that joke was not even funny. I have not heard of that medication being used to treat bipolar depakote or lithium but never fluoxetine. Suicide may be one of the side effect of that medication and to continue taking it may cause serious problems to the point where she acts on that thought.
