That's a great perspective. Prior to the 1950s, there were no true antidepressants. Amphetamines and cocaine had been used in the past. Chlorpromazine (Thorazine), the first antipsychotic, was first introduced in 1952 in France. The first antidepressant approved for depression was iproniazid, a MAOI, in 1958. Imipramine, the first tricyclic, was introduced in 1959. MAOIs and TCAs. That was it. SSRIs didn't emerge in the United States until the approval of fluoxetine in 1987.

I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
