    Serotonin (5-HT) causes anxiety, LSD and its derivatives may be treat it

    Erethism. Mad Hatter’s Syndrome. Help!

    my girlfriend’s health has declined rapidly over the last few months, particularly her cognition. Her symptoms match Erethism to a tee, from suicidal ideation to shyness to a ‘locked in her own mind’ sensation. She’s done a toe nail test which indeed did show high mercury. I’ve read the Mercury...

    Is Propranolol Unique Or Can Other Beta Blockers Be Used For PTSD, Bad Memories etc...?

    There are lots of potential applications for this lipophilic and non-selective beta blocker. Can any other beta blockers be used or is it special? Metoprolol seems to be similar (although more selective and less lipophilic). Could it probably be substituted and work as well?

    SSRI drugs cause depression/anxiety, blocking serotonin rapidly reverses the latter

    It is hard to come up with a more controversial statement in psychiatry than to say that the blockbuster "antidepressant" drugs not only actually cause depression - the very condition they are supposed to treat- but also anxiety (a separate mental disorder, according to DSM V) on top of that...

    Big Pharma - oral GABA doesn't work; Also Big Pharma - oral GABA works, can replace alcohol

    We are now living in an openly clown world, so I don't really expect many doctors to change their position based on contrarian evidence, but it is a stunning admission on behalf of medicine regardless. Namely, mainstream medicine and its partners in crime (often, literally) Big Pharma have spend...

    Anti-anxiety drugs cause brain damage, unemployment, and suicide...even if stopped

    Just a few minutes ago I posted about a study implicating serotonin (5-HT) and, by extension, SSRI drugs in brain atrophy and depression, especially in aging people. In clinical practice, while SSRI drugs are considered plenty "safe", anti-anxiety drugs such as the popular benzodiazepines (e.g...

    STUDY: Glycine may treat depression; MEDIA: Glycine may cause depression

    The level of misreporting in mainstream media is reaching criminal levels.
