I have an unsubstantiated theory, that antidepressants themselves can be condusive to this type of behavior.

Before I ever took an AD, I never obsessed so much with drugs, neurotransmitters, bla bla bla.

Its when I took an antidepressant all of this behavior started.

It was the same with my mother. When she first started a TCA back 20 years ago, she started buying all of these books on drugs, started memorizing all of the names of the TCA's etc, started hording benzodiazapines etc.

After she started lithium, she just stopped caring about all of that.

I think its a deceptive path to take. For a short while I thought I could determine my fate by which drugs I took, but then I realized the more time I spent obsessing about drugs, the less time I spent doing the things that were *actually* going to improve the quality of my life.

In short, I think some drugs can actually create a psudo drug seeking behavior.
