"and the placebo response overall appears to have increased over time"
Perhaps, but what magnitide are we talking about. There are no numbers. It could have increased an average of 2% for all I know.
In one sense I can see drug responces in the past as being stronger since the TCA's are more effective drugs.
I would need some numbers that show how the placebo response has increased significantly.
Placebo response could have been lower in the past too due the the weaker "establishement" of AD's in the past.
