Well, my take and experience (15 years or so) is that over time and with experiments, YES, medications CAN and DO work.

When I first started on meds, a tiny dose of a Elavil and Ativan was tossed at me, and of course it did very little. Then the SSRIs where big, and I tried, and they did a little bit more, but not much. Then the SNRIs, first generation like Effexor, and did more, but still not enough. Then many combos, with my bipolar diagnosis, and mood stabilizers, and still no go. And, modern day, we are working with a new generation SNRI, Cymbalta, and a dash of older Prozac, plus Risperdal for mood stabilization and Topamax as well..oh and clonazepam, and I have really been seem to be doing fine.
Somedays better then others, but heythat is fine by me. It beats the bad old days where I didnt know what to expect one hour to the next!

I am currently rebuilding my life, and take care not to make too much stress, but handle stress like a normal person. When I overload with stress, I go lay down or have a bit of a nap with a clonazepam. But, I work really hard on it, and it does pay off.
Life is getting better, and that is what counts. Quite a bit of thanks to Science and Medications.

IMHO.
