From Medscape Psychiatry: “This latest meta-analysis [the Cipriani study] claims to have found something different—that antidepressants are effective. In fact, its results are basically the same as in prior analyses, confirming that almost all antidepressants are ineffective or at least not in a clinically meaningfully way, when examined as a whole compared with placebo. In other words, the only thing this study confirms is that prior studies were right when they reported that antidepressants ‘don’t work.'”
