Pure neuroscience research is extraordinarily valuable, but more so for those who will come after us. Can someone use what they learn from research papers to design a treatment? Of, course they can. Unfortunately, this is uncommon.

For example, I was interested in vortioxetine (which I'm on right now) because I had read it acts on serotonin 5-HT3 receptors, which was interesting to me because I had never tried anything else with an effect on those receptors.

Are you still taking vortioxetine?

I think scientists had been focusing on the ability of vortioxetine to antagonize 5-HT7 receptors. However, the drug does so many different things, that it is sort of like throwing as much crap at the the serotoninergic wall (serotonergic receptors and SERT), that some of it is bound to stick.

I hope that your incorporation of pure research to your treatment strategies yields a robust response. The combining of MAOI with TCA was also based to a great degree on the basic research performed in the late 1970s and 1980s.

Whatever works.
