Listen now | Tom and Stuart argue about psychedelics, the Bayesian brain, and mental illness
One thing that jumps out to me when you talked about the research: six weeks is not a long time. I have not been on Lexapro in a long while, but it's not uncommon for me to start an antidepressant and be told that I might not see results for eight weeks. A lot of drugs - Lamictal for example - are potentially unsafe to even take at a clinical dosage at six weeks. Stepping up dosages is very common with anti-depressants so I am not really convinced six weeks is nearly long enough to show much of anything.
