I agree that you should find out as much as you can about the study before you start, and also involve your doctor in the decision. I'm currently involved in a trial using Reboxetine. The only placebo factor was that for one week, you'd possibly be getting one, but for the rest of the study you'd definitely get Reboxetine. That combined with the fact that I'd been waiting and waiting for Reboxetine to be released in the U.S., and that I have no health insurance, made it a worthwhile risk to me, particularly since my alternative was to begin the mix-and-match routine. Although I haven't found Reboxetine to be the Holy Grail I'd hoped it would be, it hasn't left me completely without relief, or with unendurable side-effects, plus I've had enough blood tests, EEGs, and soon an MRI, so that if there's anything else horribly wrong with me, we'd find it out, all without my having to finance it.
