Fact: Anti-Depressant Drugs No Better Than Placebo

If you’re amongst the millions who suffer from Depression, you’ve probably tried many treatments, both Conventional and natural. Have they helped you, made no difference, or made things worse? Perhaps you’re even wondering what to do now? Then this fact may interest you. More and more research is concluding that Conventional anti-depressant medications are at best useless or worse, dangerous. Indeed, a study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry reveals that antidepressant drugs work no better than other methods at relieving depression. Or, in the words of the Journal’s authors: “This trial of urban MDD patients failed to confirm that either active treatment was better than placebo.” Their lead researcher, Jacques P. Barber PhD, even admitted: “I was surprised by the results, they weren’t what I’d expected.” The results may also have caused Barber some embarrassment given that some of co-researchers have received funding from the pharmaceutical industry for the study. In trying to justify the ‘unexpected’ results, Barber also said: “receiving a placebo in a clinical trial is not the same as getting no treatment.” That’s because study participants in placebo groups have contact with health professionals who are asking about their symptoms and well-being
