only one rule - *evenually everything poops*

Posted by linkadge on June 23, 2004, at 16:44:53

I don't know of one person who has not experienced a decline in effectivness in their medications.

Sure, everyone at the beginning gets that rush, as if they will never be unhappy again but it always fades. It either moves to a complete relapse or just to a steady apathy.

You see the problem is that neurotransmitters are only half the battle. You can jolt them with as much neurotransmitter as you want, but eventually the circutry itself gets tired. Glutamate is the final destination excitory neuotransmitter and if you push that one too hard it gets angry and kills off the neuron (glutamate toxicity).

Sorry to seem like such a downer, but its true, even our best antidepressant ECT is notorious for pooping.
