I didn't try to read the underlying study and, for me, SSRI's didn't do much. But it makes sense that if you eliminate all the noise - sleep changes, appetite changes, feelings of guilty and so forth - and look only at symptoms unique to depression - depressive mood, suicidality - that the results would be different. What surprised me was how large the difference was.
