> However, even if we're talking strictly about the objective here, the classical monoaminergic theories are bunk according to today's neuroscience.

If all the monoaminergic theories are bunk, then is there any sort of guesses out there, or what?

Are MAOI's considered any better, in general, then other classes of drugs?

My psychiatrist told me a couple weeks ago that there is a new theory floating around about how antidepressants only help for a little while in many people, and then peter out. The new theory is that possibly it is better to treat with a mild amount of mood stabilizer, and let the brain try to balance it's chemistry on its own. Of course, this begs all kinds of questions, like what happens when people are in a serious crisis, or have intractable anxiety, or whatever.
