Well, just to play the devils advokate:

>Friend #1: Same family and social circle as >before Paxil. There were mprovements in his >social life that kicked in after his depression >improved.

Depression resolved on its own, or due to the system of reassurance provided by a caring physician plus placebo effect.

>Friend #2: Given the same life circumstances, >she is calmer and more balanced on meds. She's >gone on and off enough to clearly know the >difference.

She's gone on and off enought to know she's addicted.

>Same friends, same family, same doctor, same >job. Different drug.

Different drug = new placebo with a less burdonsom side effect profile.

>Her husband and kids were always good. She said >had a good life and was chronically depressed >and anxious for no apparent reason. Enter Prozac.

Again. Enters a system of support.

>At least for these folks, it's not coincidence.

Theres no way to proove either way. The placebo effect is very strong. So strong, that study designers look for good ways to downplay their effects. I watched a show. Its funny to see how people will swear by their placebo's!
