While some of the 100 may beed a slightly different BP Med...ALL will show a measurable drop in blood pressure with the proper med, dose and time.

I think the the issue here that "depression", "anxiety" and "bipolar disorder" are catch-all terms for a huge spectrum of similar disorders with different genetic, biochemical and psychological causes.

It's very convenient for psychiatry and the drug industry to lump them all in together as a handful of conditions, but there are very different things happening under the skin for different people.

Perhaps that would explain why even highly effective psych meds won't work for as large a proportion of people as a blood pressure med.
