One of the few clues we had was that NE reuptake inhibitors were THERAPEUTIC for melancholic depression, so it's ironic that while non-selective NE reuptake inhibitors (TCA's) have real efficacy for this disorder, selective ones like reboxetine and Strattera can worsen or induce such symptoms. Not only is it a black box, it's a black box whose output hardly seems to be amenable to conjecture yet.

I doubt scientists are going to make any real progress with psychotropics except by accident. I mean that for the foreseeable future (the next hundred years or so).
