If you ask people for their knowledge, they're going to share their knowledge!! If you just want information, then go to Wikipedia or google! Part of the knowledge (and more importantly wisdom) you will gain here (if you stick around long enough) is the understanding (that I personally gained over two decades of living with mental illness) is that the mechanism of a drug gives a **very limited** indication of the efficacy of the drug for a particular individual.

Drugs that look good on paper often do *not* translate well to the efficacy of that drug for a particular individual. If you want information, go to google. If you want wisdom then have some respect and listen to what people are saying.

Treat your disorder based on what the symptoms are, not what you believe the underlying cause to be. Scientists are only barely scratching the surface when it comes to how these drugs work.

Neurotransmitter deficiency was a theory that is decades old. Modern theories are much, much, much more comprehensive and complicated (since the brain is extraordinarily complicated).

The drugs are likely acting on a level that we haven't fully elucidated. This includes brain growth factors, neuroprotection, inflammation, intercellular / intracellular actions, gene modification, HPA axis, circadian rythm, protein synthesis, the list goes on...

If you think this is about high or low serotonin, you are still thinking the earth is flat.
