Hi Scott,

>But placebo responders will have been removed from this phase of the study by the end of 10 weeks.

I don't think people are either placebo responders or non-responders though. People may respond to one placebo but not another, depending on how effective them deem the treatment to be. For example, someone might respond to sham ECT but not a placebo tablet. People might get a 'better' placebo effect from a drug which cause more side effects, because they assume that it's more 'powerful' than a drug which causes milder side effects.

>This sort of procedure has been carried out in the past. Perhaps a taper could be performed over the course of two weeks rather than an abrupt continuation.

I agree. A taper would be very important.

Kind regards
