>Perhaps you were grasping for the term psychosocialpharmacology

Psychological was the term I was grasping for.

Poignant biological lesson aside, you simply missed my point. When you take a medication, the action is accompanied by a psychological reaction that may be built on false assumptions. A popular reaction I witness is when a person starts taking an antidepressant and immediately claims relief. It takes most antidepressants weeks to take effect. Not taking into account your freakish metabolism, your reaction to that first dose of Wellbutrin XL could have been purely psychological-it could've been an anxiety response. That's why I urged you to take it a second time, which I think you did and did not experience the same 'flooding' sensation.

I've learned to never trust my first reaction to a drug-there may be psychological factors at play. I remember trying carbamazapine for the first time. I was sure it caused me to be depressed the first day I took it, so I swore it off. Sometime later I tried it again and stayed on it for a week without any mood disturbances. I must have been depressed the first time I took it, not depressed because of it.
