FDA Warning re AED's

Hi. Just wondering if anyone else happened to see the 1/31/08 FDA report about a whole slew of antiepileptic medications which their studies have shown to potentially increase the risk of suicide among those taking them. My husband heard it on the radio and told me, and I did a search online and found it posted on 2/1/08. Both of my drugs are on that list!! (Tegretol and Lamictal.) The FDA said they're going to add this warning soon to all (14?) drugs. What in the heck are people like us--who suffer depression on top of epilepsy (like I do)--supposed to do?? This is frustrating and scary.
