    Maternal SSRI/SNRI use leads to offspring addiction/withdrawal

    After being told for decades that SSRI/SNRI drugs are safe for usage during pregnancy, now the truth finally starts to come out. Well, technically it has been out for a long time considering the skyrocketing autism rates and the strong causal link between serotonin and autism. However, up until...

    SSRI drugs decrease androgens / progestogens, increase estrogens

    As hard as it is to believe, this is the actual title of the study - i.e. SSRI drugs are bonafide endocrine disruptors. As it turns out, all of the six most-prescribed SSRI drugs the study looked at behaved not only as inhibitors of gonadal androgen synthesis (e.g. testosterone, DHT), but also...

    Children anti-depressants, 231,791 prescriptions UK in 2020

    Western nations are really destroying themselves at this rate, kids at 5 years of age and up getting prescribed SSRI’s, the medical establishment needs to reeled in ASAP. COVID was the excuse used to justify this, it’s driven by profit margins for big pharma, the parents must be stupid, it’s...

    Serotonin puts the brakes on libido, by lowering dopamine

    Nothing really surprising, as far as Peatarians are concerned, in the findings of this study. I am only posting it here as it is one of the few that officially acknowledge that serotonergic drugs cause sexual dysfunction - i.e. something mainstream medicine has vehemently denied for decades. As...

    Upregulated serotonin synthesis may be a biomarker for breast cancer

    Once again, the available evidence contradicts the popular myth promoted by public health agencies that serotonin is the "happiness hormone". One only needs to talk to a person on serotonergic (SSRI) drugs for a few minutes to realize just how "happy" those people are as a result of their...

    Depression fades away when serotonin levels drop

    A very, very inconvenient study for mainstream medicine and its Big Pharma goons. The so-called "serotonin hypothesis" is slowly crumbling and the results from the most recent studies are so unequivocal that the fraud about serotonin as the "happiness hormone" may go down in history as one of...

    Many people may suffer from chronic serotonin syndrome

    A very interesting article, which calls out the widespread usage of serotonergic drugs (usually SSRI), and argues that their widespread use may have created an "epidemic" of a chronic, milder version of the (in)famous serotonin syndrome (SS). Currently, mainstream medicine does not recognize...

    Serotonin and oxytocin promote gullibility, trainability, and servility

    A great study, which while done with horses, will probably raise questions (unfortunately only in people with already-low serotonin) of whether the relentless promotion of serotonin (5-HT) as the "happiness hormone" and oxytocin as the "love and connection hormone" has any evidence in support...

    Feeling meh? Do this to get rid of apathy!

    Some of us might know that serotonin is involved in mental and emotional suppression and lowering it or increasing the dopamine to serotonin ratio can be very helpful for re-igniting motivation, drive, enjoyment, etc. Feeling meh? Do this to get rid of apathy! Towards the end of the article, I...

    Anti-Peat SSRIs used to treat Covid-19?

    I don't necessarily agree with this but I do feel it's important to bring in opposing viewpoints. I recently watched a 60 minutes episode where they found an old drug called fluvoxamine that could be used to treat sepsis. This led them to look into its efficacy for treatment for Covid-19. The...

    SSRI withdrawal - Acetylcholine

    I need further resources to aid in me reducing my SSRI doseage. I've been plagued with them for about 2 years now and only got on them because of misdiagnosis and other health issues i.e SLEEP APNEA. My cognition and libido are destroyed and i find myself having to use a milligram scale in order...

    Serotonin promotes (futile) patience and (false) faith in future rewards

    This study alone explains so much of the pathological behavior seen in humans living in developed countries. Namely, the vast majority of them are willing to break their backs working and "delaying gratification" in the hopes that one day they will "make it" and all of their efforts will be...

    Serotonin (and SSRI drugs) can cause anxiety and PTSD

    Yet another great study exposing just how much of a "happy hormone" serotonin really is. As usual, the popular press article does everything possible to avoid pointing the finger at serotonin and even engages in misdirection. For example, it says that SERT is the main target of drugs like...

    Seeking Advice: Rheumatoid Arthritis And IBS/Anxiety

    I'm looking for advice to help both my sister and mother with their longstanding health issues. My mother is in her mid-50s and has been suffering from severe Rheumatoid Arthritis for as long as I can remember. She told me she has been on Prednisone for the majority of my life (I'm 31). She was...

    Anti-Psychotic Endocrine Disturbance Counters? + Some Back Story

    TLDR; Olanzapine (Zyprexa) is meant to majorly disturb the endocrine system, increase prolactin, lower testosterone etc. Is there a way to mitigate this? HCG? Pregnenolone? Not using the medication is not a possibility for this stage - at least until I stabilize. The dosage will be low - 2.5mg...

    SSRI Drugs Increase Violent Behavior And Promote Recidivism

    Despite decades of animal research demonstrating how elevated serotonin in general, and SSRI drugs in particular, turn animals into homicidal, vicious creatures, (and are actually the cause of depression and not the cure for it) mainstream medicine continues to deny that such scary effects are...

    SSRI Drugs, Not Depression, Destroy Empathy

    Yet another medical myth gets busted today. A common dogma in psychiatry is that one of the core symptoms of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) is lack of empathy. In other words, while such patients are perfectly in tune with their own suffering and negative emotions, they are...
