Some medications have been linked to an increased risk for violent, even homicidal behavior. A recent study identified 31 drugs that are disproportionately linked with violent behavior.

Time Magazine lists the top ten offenders:

    1. Varenicline (Chantix): The number one violence-inducing drug on the list, this anti-smoking medication is 18 times more likely to be linked with violence when compared to other drugs
    2. Fluoxetine (Prozac): This drug was the first well-known SSRI antidepressant
    3. Paroxetine (Paxil): Another SSRI antidepressant, Paxil is also linked with severe withdrawal symptoms and a risk of birth defects
    4. Amphetamines: (Various): Used to treat ADHD
    5. Mefoquine (Lariam): A treatment for malaria which is often linked with reports of strange behavior
    6. Atomoxetine (Strattera): An ADHD drug that affects the neurotransmitter noradrenaline
    7. Triazolam (Halcion): This potentially addictive drug is used to treat insomnia
    8. Fluvoxamine (Luvox): Another SSRI antidepressant
    9. Venlafaxine (Effexor): An antidepressant also used to treat anxiety disorders
    10. Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq): An antidepressant which affects both serotonin and noradrenaline
