The point has been made that if active placebos were used, they would equal existing AD's in effectiveness.

The problem is that many 'nocebos' that have been used were anticholinergic agents, which probably have antidepressant effects in their own right.

Another problem is that depression itself is a clinical term, and implies nothing about the etiology of the syndrome.

Helay's name was mentioned somewhere up the thread. He is not a skeptic about whether or not AD's are better than placebo. But he does observe that SSRI's are more effective for treating premature ejaculation than depression.
