My theory is that things will stay impotent until they're able to differentiate between different types of depression, different types of anxiety.
For example, NE is awful for some types of depression. But until they identify subsets, they'll keep flinging medications at patients. Some of which may help, some of which may hurt, and some of which may miss the mark entirely. Once they identify different subsets and different causes, they can possibly identify additional approaches that might help and have less potential to hurt.
