  • I think the conclusion of the article was not that there is no harm in taking SSRI medication. I believe it was to show that a patient may have better results if they participated in CBT and built an ongoing relationship with a therapist than if they simply used drugs to treat their depression. The great part of the drugs effectiveness seems to come from the patients belief that it will work. If the patient believed that CBT would work then they would get similar results as if they took the drugs, perhaps better results because they would be working through the causes of the depression and simply medicating the symptoms.
