I am just playing the devil's advocate here as I often do. There is plenty of literature on the topic of how antidepressants fair in comparison to placebos.

There have been plenty of studies which try to determine the overal effect of the placebo by analyzing previous clinical trials and studies.

You can get an idea of the gravity of the placebo effect by typing in antidepressant + placebo into your favorite search engine.

I am not going to argue that antidepressants don't work, because that is impossble, but I can argue that placebos work as well as antidepressants in most clinical trials becuase that is fact based.
