I agree with using empirical evidence but that's what is confusing. I honestly don't find the evidence too compelling. Consider the use of SSRIs in children and adolescents. Clinical data appear to show little to no benefit beyond placebo:

And even in adults on closer inspection evidence appears to be lacking or at the least is pretty weak:

Given such weak evidence why are these drugs so popular with prescribers?
