University of Hull team concluded the drugs [anti-depressants] actively help only a small group of the most severely depressed.
I didn't know I was that severely depressed. O wait, it's just the placebo effect I'm experiencing. Don't these people understand I don't care how it works as long as it does? On the other hand the guy from the British Pharmaceutical Industry has got a point, these meds were tested and approved all over the world, so they must have shown some benefits other than just the placebo effect.
In the end all it comes down to is that anti-depressants aren't miracle drugs. Thanks BBC, I couldn't have figured that out by myself.
The title of this blog is borrowed from a The Verve song, which apparently was inspired by Richard Ashcroft's father dying of cancer. I love it and it's always had the most profound effect on me. Being vulnerable with 'flu and sleep-deprivation is perhaps not the best time to be thinking about it, though.
Now the drugs don't work
They just make you worse
But I know I'll see your face again
