However, when the unpublished data is taken into account the difference between the effects of drug and placebo becomes clinically meaningless -- just a 1 or 2 point difference on a 30-point depression rating scale -- except for the most severely depressed patients.
I'd say that this part could be interpreted as "People resort to drugs against depression too lightly" That's what I thought when I read those words at least.

What sin has not been committed in the name of efficiency?
