As I side, I do remember that Rebif included a warning regarding increased Suicide risks. I would be surprised that those numbers would be included in any numbers by the manufacturers, as well.
Depression and Suicide
Rebif® (interferon beta-1a) should be used with caution in patients with depression, a condition that is common in people with multiple sclerosis. Depression, suicidal ideation, and suicide attempts have been reported to occur with increased frequency in patients receiving
interferon compounds, including Rebif®.
In addition, there have been postmarketing reports of suicide in patients treated with Rebif®. Patients should be advised to report immediately any symptoms of depression and/or suicidal ideation to the prescribing physician. If a patient develops depression, cessation of treatment
with Rebif® should be considered.
