GlaxoSmithKline's Seroxat

On the patient information leaflet for Seroxat (2006), it states:

Seroxat should not be used for children and adolescents under 18 years because it has not been proven to be an effective medicine for this age group. Also, patients under 18 have an increased risk of side-effects such as suicidal thoughts and harming themselves when they take Seroxat. If your doctor has prescribed Seroxat for you (or your child) and you want to discuss this, please go back to your doctor.

Now just a few points here.

1. Why is there an increased risk of suicidal thoughts and/or self harm?

2. What causes these increased risks?

3. If your doctor has prescribed your child Seroxat, why?

It seems totally bizarre to me
