Doctors raise alarm about women’s safety in domestic violence study

Some partners of men participating in a trial of an SSRI to reduce their violence have complained of increased abuse

Doctors advocating for women experiencing domestic violence have called for a moratorium on a world-first trial of an antidepressant to reduce offences among men with a history of impulsivity and violence. 

It has been claimed that at least three current or former partners of men enrolled in the ReINVEST trial underway in NSW have reported increased violence since it began.
