I disagree with you on only two points.

> If they help, no matter what subjective "name" is given to someone's symptoms, then those meds are not redundant. If they do not help, no matter what the name, then they are redundant.

Would we want to say that, globally, Wellbutrin and Effexor are redundant just because they didn't work for SLS?

> The best evidence on lamictal suggests it can "delay" a relapse.

Perhaps when used in a rapid cycling bipolar disorder. I am not sure, though. I am sure, however, that a great many people, including me, experience an acute antidepressant effect, often within the first week. This early response will often disappear, but return several weeks later.
