Undopaminergic is right.

Your doctor is right.

As an example, some anti-seizure medications can actually trigger seizures in patients who had previously been seizure-free for years. Doctors often want to find a substitute for Tegretol (carbamazepine) because it requires regular blood tests to detect the onset of agranuloctyosis. This reaction can be fatal.

I became suicidal at least 4 times after beginning treatment with a new drug. Unfortunately, having an "antidepressant" exacerbate depression is all to common.

Why did I use quotes?

A molecule doesn't know that it is an antidepressant. It doesn't know that it is a laxative. Once research scientists label a molecule something other than a molecule, its value as a tool becomes limited. For instance, Paxil was found to have value in treating anxiety disorders after it was approved by the FDA for only one indication - depression. Perhaps opposite sides of a single Paxil molecule binds to different receptors. Now, someone has to re-educate Paxil so that it knows it is an anxiolytic.

Stupid, I know. However, humans tend to label things in order to help them make sense of the world.
