I also have a related question to this entire Topic.
It is my understanding that many of the AD's work by inhibiting the re-uptake of certain select
chemicals produced in our Brain. I will use this example, since this is a medication I was on for many years..Zoloft
Definitions of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor on the Web:
an antidepressant drug that acts by blocking the reuptake of serotonin so that more serotonin is available to act on receptors in the brain
My question is this.....if our brain naturally gets rid of the serotonin, and we interfere with that by causing it's uptake to be slowed...how can this be healthy ?????
Is there not a good REASON that our bodies are designed to dispel this and other mood altering chemicals? Is this not upsetting the natural balance that was intended to exist in our brains?
Im sure this question has been poised before, but I have always wondered about it, so I thought I would ask.
