Hi Ed.

> Using the 'bar' on the right hand side of the page scroll down to page 165. Have a look at how the efficacy of paroxetine (Paxil/Seroxat) compares to placebo. The results of various trials are presented in a table. As you can see, paroxetine is only slightly more effective than placebo. The MDD studies were especially disappointing.

And how do YOU interpret all of this?

We know these drug do work - and work well - do we not? It's just here on Psycho-Babble that medications in general look disappointing in the context of a very treatment-resistant population - one that does not equate with the general population. Something must be wrong with the studies that were *chosen* to look at.

Don't be so disappointed.

- Scott
