What Is More Effective, Meds Or Talk Therapy?

To me, psychotherapy is just as important when it comes to the treatment of mental illness as psychiatric medications are. But at the same time, I think that more often than not, the meds are more effective for treating those with mental illness because so many people who go into talk therapy won't do much to help themselves.

For those who do what they can to help improve their lives while seeking counseling, therapy can be just as effective as meds. But it's so much harder for shrinks to help people with psychotherapy for people who won't do much to help themselves.
