SERATONIN SYNDROME! - treatment resistance - BPII

Posted by Garnet71 on January 24, 2009, at 9:22:51

Several of us have been complaining about cognitive and other symptoms. Doctors often call it treatment resistant depression or Bipolar II (which, btw, seem to be catch all diagnoses for when doctors can't figure out what is wrong with you). Maybe we have a mild version of seratonin syndrome? How does a doctor know we are deficient in seratonin when they prescribe SSRIs? Since they do not possibly know, maybe we have too much seratonin in our brains.

I haven't taken anti depressants for over a week, and my mind feels much more clear.

Just thinking out of the box...take a look into this for yourself.

From WIKI:

The symptoms are often described as a clinical triad of abnormalities:[3][4]

Cognitive effects: mental confusion, hypomania, hallucinations, agitation, headache, coma.
Autonomic effects: shivering, sweating, hyperthermia, hypertension, tachycardia, nausea, diarrhea.
Somatic effects: myoclonus (muscle twitching), hyperreflexia (manifested by clonus), tremor.
