Anti-depressants research depressing

The manufacturers tried to avoid publishing it, but a recent study stamps a big question mark on the thousands of anti-depressant prescriptions made daily.

A review of clinical trials of new generation antidepressant drugs, including Prozac and Aropax, found they were no more effective than a placebo, or sugar tablet, for most people with depression. The study included results that manufacturers had chosen not to publish, as well as data reported in scientific journals…

Kind of depressing.

    its so difficult for research to be published (or even funded) if the results or hypothesis is likely to lead to less people buying the product of the company doing the funding. hard in this world to get a non-biased view of things!
