The thing I've never understood is WHY AD's have such a high rate of placebo response. I would think most depressed people would be more like me, NOT expecting the drug to work, an anti-placebo response, That's the nature of depression, and unfortunately for me has always proved true.

The trouble with all the studies of course, is that there are probably many types of depression, some psychologically caused, some physiologically caused, some a combination. The studies act like they're all the same, no wonder they get such mixed results. It's like putting people with a cough into one study, without differentiating whether they've got TB, asthma, pertussis, allergies, lung cancer or the common cold. Cecilia
