I agree that the preception of a drug can dramatically affect its use. How many people are on a particular drug these days because their doctor told them it worked better?
There are a lot of unsubstantiated opinions out there that frame the way doctors approach drugs.
How do you get people on drugs? The more people who simply try the drug, the more people who will continue taking it. As long as a drug is better than nothing, and widely distributed, it could become sucessfull.
I think that moclobemide is probably not prescribed that much, because it just seems like the "odd one out", with all of the SSRI's about.
Prozac has a name for itself.
