Neurotransmiters in our brain, something we need to be sane, to function properly…good read to learn a bit more about your’s brain functioning!
Currently, because of concomitant depression disorder, I am taking venlafaxine (Effexor XR), which have helped me to get out of the cave and start functioning.
This drug is not an SSRI antidepressant, but SNRI, so, as they claim, in higher doses he is working on norepinephrine and dopamine receptors, and not just on the serotonin, as the usual SSRI’s do.
As you can see from the picture, Effexor is covering all of the three neurotransmitters, but only in high dosages, which I take now ( 300 mg a day).
Also, it was the only pill that made me feel human after a long time.
All the others were just like giving me water drops.
I am not making a commercial here, I have friends on other antidepressants that suit them perfectly.
We are just not all the same.
What do you think about this? Antidepressants, your experiences and thoughts?
