I think that psychiatrists are pulled this way and that by the latest study which comes out.

There was a recent study which suggested that polypharmacology was associated with a higher hospitalization readmission rate. I don't know if it was just a correlational study though.

Fewer drugs makes more sense in terms of side effects and toxicity, but I don't know about efficacy.

Its really hard to say.
