I agree that the MAOIs and TCAs were more effective. Think of it, both classes of those medications were discovered by ACCIDENT. Doctors recognized that they were making patients feel better.

Because of their success, researchers proposed the monoamine hypothesis which caused them (IMHO) to get tunnel vision on monoamine based drugs. But, the monoamine hypothesis is very incomplete (at best) and completely incorrect (at worst).

Medicine in the past was more based on getting patients better. Now it's just about money. Useless arrays of me-too drugs are not helping patients.
