Anti-Placebo Effect

Posted by Kathy on September 8, 1999, at 5:49:56

Does anyone have any thoughts on whether your mind can make an antidepressant drug NOT work? I have failed to respond to a multitude of drugs and my ex-therapist more or less implied that this was because of my belief that I don`t deserve to improve and fears about how my life would change if I did. On the one hand it makes sense that if there can be a placebo effect there can also be an anti-placebo effect--on the other hand surely negative thoughts and beliefs are an inherent part of depression so in a way it`s blaming the victim.
