Why do people buy depression pills when the pills "May cause thoughts of suicide" and many many other side effects?

Because there's a better chance that the pills will help them!

Because they are really desperate and haven't thought of seeing a therapist/physiatrist instead.

Those side affects dont happen for everyone and they have to try different medicine before they find the right one for them.
And also for a lot of people with depression its truly a chemical embalance(like bipolar) so seeing a psychiatrist wont help them.
They try the drugs because they want to feel better and enjoy life.

because the pharmaceutical companies have sold people on the idea that by taking a pill you can fix things...and in some instances they do work but sometimes the cure is worse than the affliction

Because when people are SOO depressed they get put on antidepressants. Then, the antidepressants start giving them energy because they are less depressed. However, the slight increase in energy is sometimes enough thSt they now have the energy to carry out suicide ( whereas before they may not have been able to get out of bed) but they have not been on the medication long enough to pass the point of not feeling suicidal. It is a small percentage of people who go through this suicidal phase on their way to feeling a lot better and the small risk is way better than a lifetime of severe depression.

The possible risks are worth taking, pale in comparison to living with the pain and suffering of depression. It's the chance most are willing to take, because the meds help so many,
