The Drug Companies Won't Like This

Depression drugs don’t work, finds data review - Times Online Given the number of people on these drugs, it will be a major blow if everyone decides they don't work.
Millions of people taking commonly prescribed antidepressants such as Prozac and Seroxat might as well be taking a placebo, according to the first study to include unpublished evidence.

The new generation of antidepressant drugs work no better than a placebo for the majority of patients with mild or even severe depression, comprehensive research of clinical trials has found.
I see it more as an attempt in the War on (some) Drugs to get people off the "bad" drugs and on the "good" drugs - even if they don't work.
