While browsing through a number of suicide prevention and drug safety websites, I came across your site and was very impressed by the information you have listed on your Resources page. At DrugWatch.com, we aim to educate the public about prescription and over-the-counter medications that can cause serious side effects.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, at least half of all Americans take prescription drugs. Unfortunately, many medications intended to help a patient can cause harm or life-threatening side effects such as depression and suicidal thoughts. As an example, in May 2000, BJ Stupak, the son of a congressman, tragically committed suicide after taking Accutane to treat his severe acne, with no prior history of mental illness.

I noticed that you have suicide prevention resources listed at hessmentalhealth.com and thought you might be interested in including a link to our site. Please let me know if you are interested. With your help, we can keep the public informed about important drug information and potentially dangerous medications. Thanks again!

Sincerely,

Hi Jeff,
Thank you for your email. I’m so glad to learn about DrugWatch.com! Your site is great and I would love to include a link from our site. You are providing a great service! I would also like to include part of your email in my blog, with your permission, as an introduction to DrugWatch.

People underestimate the harm medication can cause when not taken appropriately. I see people in the Emergency Department who overdose on Tylenol PM when stressed out and don’t realize what they are doing to their liver, thinking an over the counter medication is totally safe. Thank you for this opportunity to better keep people informed!

Thanks again!
Julia

Hi Julia,
First of all let me thank you for deciding to feature our site, we really appreciate it.

Drugwatch.com features information on medications as well as warns against the dangers of drug side effects. One drug that has been put on alert is accutane, in some cases resulting in severe depression that has lead to suicide prompting many of its users to file accutane lawsuits. For more information on medication risks and side effects visit Drugwatch.com.

Thanks so much for your support and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

Best Regards,
-Jeff
