as far as I know, there are no blood tests or brain scans for "high serotonin levels," etc. in psychiatry. Drugs are prescribed based on the labels/diagnosis the psychiatrist concludes best suits the patient's problems. Its not exactly scientific, honestly.

if you read the older psych literature, the prescribing habits were more drug-centered. the idea was to match the drug(s) to the problems, no matter the diagnosis.

my personal advice would be to minimize one's psych drug intake, when and if possible, and also to be selective about what psych drugs one consumes. I take abilify daily, and that's not ideal, but it helps me function w/o as many problems as other tranquilizers cause.

personally, id avoid tranquilizers -if- I could. I recommend that -most- people avoid the tranquilizers/antipsychotics, unless psychosis, mania, agitation, etc. are a problem. then, one might see more benefits than drawbacks.
