    The FDA specifically advised:

    Anyone who starts being treated with antidepressant medicines, particularly those being treated for depression, should be watched closely for worsening of depression and for increased suicidal thinking or behavior.
    Close observation of adults may be especially important when antidepressant medications are started for the first time or when doses for their antidepressant medications have been changed.
    Adults whose symptoms worsen while being treated with antidepressants, including an increase in suicidal thinking or behavior, should be evaluated by their health care professional.
    In 2004, a warning was issued regarding antidepressant medication use in children and adolescents. This warning was later expanded to include young adults (ages 18 to 24). There was concern that antidepressants might increase the risk of suicide in these age groups (this risk was not found in those older than 24).
    Have you ever seen the warnings when these anti-depressants are advertised on television? I want to know if these mass shooters are on these anti-depressants.

    There has to be a reason why these things happen. I do not trust these meds.

    Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold didn't commit the Columbine murders until after they went off their anti-depressants.

    He may not have lived in Aurora. The news reports say "Denver-area apartment". A quick facebook search in Denver brought up 5 guys, all white (except one, who I can't ascertain because his profile photo is a whale).

    Interesting that both were on them . . .

    Depression and anxiety are common symptoms when withdrawing from antidepressants. When depression is a withdrawal symptom, it’s often worse than the original depression that led to drug treatment in the first place. Unfortunately, many people mistake this withdrawal symptom for a return of their depressive illness and resume medication, creating a vicious circle.

    The morons on CNN: "He was wearing a gas mask! Durr, of course he was dressed like Bane!"

    No s**t. What mass murderer in their right mind - so to speak - would use gas-based weaponry without a gas mask?

    I would like to state that this is a horrific tragedy where many innocent people lost their lives and many more were injured. My thoughts and condolences go out to the victims and their family, friends and loved ones.

    I also wish to state that anyone who uses this type of tragedy for political or religious attack has my deepest disrespect. The act of this person was not driven by political or religious ideology of any kind. There is no belief from any political belief or party, nor of any mainstream religion that advocates this action or believes in its legitimacy. To use this to attack a belief or ideology that is opposite is despicable.

    I would also like to state that someone who for whatever reason is willing to kill so many, gun laws will not deter them from doing so. If a person is willing to kill indiscriminately, obtaining the firearms legally would not be a factor preventing them from their horrific actions. To think this, one would use the logic that this person who committed such violent acts would sit around and think, if only I could legally obtain guns I would go dozens but since I can't, I will just have to go on being a law abiding citizen.

    Sadly, just another horrific act that will alter our security in malls and cinema complexes, and ultimately make the world less enjoyable to be in. I am still planning on taking my sons to see this movie this weekend. I plan on an enjoyable day. I can only hope my sons will understand the nature of the tragedy and not feel threatened by something that has brought them so much enjoyment in the past.
