Wellbutrin and Suicide

As with all antidepressants, there is an increased risk of suicidal behavior when taking Wellbutrin. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a special warning regarding the threat of suicidal thoughts and behaviors with antidepressant use in children and teenagers. Wellbutrin has not been approved for use in children and teenagers. However, it may be used off-label for these age groups.

Clinical studies have proved that there is an increased risk of suicidal behavior in children and teenagers who take Wellbutrin. According to one study, 4 percent of children and teens taking antidepressants such as Wellbutrin had suicidal thoughts or behavior, compared to 2 percent in children and teens who were not taking the drug.
