Kramer: medication regimens changing comment

"The second is a more global comment about psychopharm: regimens always are changing because people are always changing. It may be unrealistic to hope that there's some magic combination of meds that will work forever. We don't understand this entirely, but it's clear (particularly with SSRI's)that the body adapts to meds in ways that aren't always helpful."

My question:

Do you feel enough research is being spent trying to understand how the body adapts to our psychotropic medications after prolonged administration?

For drugs of abuse like cocaine and speed, I can dig up a zillion studies looking at every iota of detail of how these substances cause long term physiological adaptations. But for our psychiatric medicines: next to zilch.
