New Warning Labels On Antidepressants

It took a lot of debate and some pleading from parents for this to happen but starting today, you're going to see a black box warning label on antidepressants sold in the U.S. That means Prozac, Wellbutrin, Celexa, Paxil and Zoloft will all warn that two out of 100 young people who are taking antidepressants are more likely to think about or try suicide because of the medication.

The FDA ordered drug makers to switch to the black box warning labels, which are reserved for the most dangerous drugs on the market.
