Re: new study finds no D2 dopamine abnormality in SP Relapse

I'm not sure Relapse...but I've read studies implicating/showing that the newer antipsychotics basically lower dopamine and seratonin. So if your base med works to increase the levels of these to produce some kind of stability for you (like Nardil for me) then it seems logical that something like Seroquel could inhibit or decrease the effects of the AD. I'm not sure though...i'm still a newbie and learning about the pharm stuff. I wish I could just "hang out" with a pharmacologist working on this stuff for awhile lol...it's fascinating. I hope one of the resident biochem knowledgeable people here speaks up on this...I need to know how to approach this shift downward that Seroquel seems to be giving my moods.


> That is really interesting information. I have struggled with anxiety/depression 4ever. Recently I was put on 200mg of Seroquel for sleep. Is that strategy counterproductive to my lithium/Zoloft combo?
> Thanks
