I personally don't think that doctors want to keep us sick.

For example, many doctors would prefer to not believe that a recreational drug (ketamine) could be useful for treatment resistant depression. However, because it is showing promise, doctors are looking into it. There is little / no money to be made here.

Depression is one of the costliest diseases to society in terms of both treatment, and its effect on worker productivity. If antibiotics cure 9/10 people with depression, then we're going to find out about it sooner or later.

There are trials of drugs like minocycline for depression. However, this drug has effects on inflammation as well as infection.

Another consideration is this. Probiotics are showing promise for depression treatment as well!

In other words, giving certain people an antibiotic (who don't have an infection) might actually kill off beneficial gut bacteria and make their condition worse. Just a thought.
