    I think this is an excellent point. The label on the disorder might narrow down treatment options, but why try random drugs to see what works? Neurotransmitter levels, etc, can easily be measured to see what's off-balance and needs to be corrected. Maybe then people who are suffering can get help much faster, and before trying half a dozen random drugs and concluding that they can't be helped.
