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

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.

Actually I think your experience supports the results of the study, antidepressants BY THEMSELVES seem to do very little. (I'm not sure if I buy the results of the study, but your experience actually supports rather than refutes it) You've got Cymbalta, Prozac, Risperdal, Topamax, and Clonazepam on board. You're not exactly a poster child for the benefits of monotherapy.

But I'm glad you're better. Sorry it took a while.
