> Given a Zyprexa, minus the noradrenergic alpha-1 antagonism (which for some may induce sedation), and the dopamine antagonism (potential for tardive dyskinesia), would you retract your statement? I.e. a clean medicine that blocks the Serotonin 5-ht2a and 5-ht2c receptors, thus relieving a lot of anxiety and side effects from the current generation of antidepressants?

Hey John,

Nah, I wouldn't retract my statement. I agree 5-HT2 antagonism reduces anxiety, I am not sure it improves mood directly. Other 5-HT2 antagonist are not antidepressants per say.

Although, this is just my opinion and I could very well be completely wrong! You are very well informed/intelligent, and I enjoy reading all of your posts.
