Another study with high placebo affect. This is company press release:
Do you know why they had put a higher dose of placebo?
And seem like i heard this before with Lumateperone Schizophrenia.
If a placebo is basically equal to nothing, then the dose of it should not really matter as long as each group got same number of pills.
Whatever the dose, the placebo group surpassed the lumateperone group in effectiveness in 1 of the 2 bipolar depression trials. Psychiatric disorders can vary without treatment sometimes.
Placebo effect at its best.
