(Attempted) Suicides by taking drugs — A national inquiry into suicide and attempted suicide, executed by the Ministry of Public Health and Environmental Hygiene shows that out of about five thousand responses in about 25 percent of the cases of suicide, against 75 percent of those of attempted suicide, drugs were involved. Mainly the following sort of drugs, single or in combination with each other were used, i.c. hypnotics, tranquillizers, antidepressants, neuroleptica and analgetics. Especially the hypnotics were much used. For reasons discuseed in this article it seems useful to prescribe only the non-toxic hypnotics.
