I guess the science is only as good as the scientists. I don't think there is anything wrong with the model of blinded drug trials. It is the design, preparation, and execution of the experiments that I find problems with, especially in the last 25 years. I actually favor the investigations of the 1970s and 1980s. I believe that they were less biased by the desires of drug companies, and the selection of subjects more stringent in their diagnosis of MDD. It was closer to being pure research. Interestingly, the placebo rate was lower and the response rate was higher during that period of investigation.

Are the more recently approved antidepressants worthless?
