Figure 1. From: Early discontinuation of antidepressant treatment and suicide risk among persons aged 50 and over: a population-based register study.

The probability of surviving (i.e. not of dying by suicide) is shown in . For the men aged 50 years and over, little difference was seen in the probability of suicide over time between the two groups. In women, however, those who did not refill a second prescription were less likely to die by suicide (i.e. greater survival) than women who did. When only examining those who had a history of psychiatric hospitalization, discontinuation of treatment was associated with a higher probability of suicide. This applied to both men and women. This finding, however, did not reach statistical significance when adjusting for stratifying covariates in either gender (table not shown).
