> Did they happen to mention whether this drug is closer than 5 to 10 years away from FDA approval? It seems to me like all these promising drugs, like substance-P etc... never seem to materialize. They've been talking about some of these things for years and years. Reboxetine was in the UK years ago (at least 5) and they've been chasing FDA approval here in the US for, I think, about 3 years, maybe more. It's amazing how long some of this stuff takes.
Yes, it is ridiculous how there is no sense of expedition with the development and FDA approval of these new antidepressants. We need better treatments NOW, today...not five or ten years from now. FDA...what a crock.
