Antidepressant drug trials, etc[edit]

User:Nils nilsen - it is clear that you are a fan of the book, but the content you are trying to add here and here and here is not OK.

A problem with using scales like this is that they do not measure quality of life or end points that really matters such as better relationships or being able to get back to work.[1]Peter Gotzsche, professor of research methodology and co founder of the Cochrane collaboration has pointed out that all research on antidepressants is done by withdrawing patients from their previous drug cold turkey, and after a week puting half of them back on a similar drug, and letting the rest, the placebo group, continue in cold turkey withdrawal. With this biased design, the drug group scores 3 points better on the HAM-D scale. However, a few days later, the placebo group reaches the same level, despite being in cold turkey withdrawal. The smallest change that patients or doctors can perceive on the HAM-D scale is 6.

Antidepressants and the Placebo Effect[edit]

Antidepressants and the Placebo Effect

Effect of antidepressants exaggerated due to buried data[edit]

I came across this article [1] and found the graph very interesting. The graph is from an article in the The Wall Street Journal and is sourced to the New England Journal of Medicine. What I find particularly interesting is that the second medicine on the list, Zoloft, is the most prescribed Antidepressant in the US, and the third one on the list, Remeron, is considered one of the most efficacious Antidepressants according to a meta-analysis published in 2009. I'd like to get thoughts on how this info can be incorporated and where. -- Somedifferentstuff (talk) 18:21, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
