If a certain meditation releases a lot of dopamine/serotonin, etc; is there a probability that overdoing it could down-regulate receptors in my brain?

If a certain meditation releases a lot of dopamine/serotonin, etc; is there a probability that overdoing it could down-regulate receptors in my brain?

Serontinergic: Receptors do down regulate when a medication is used, they up regulate when there is no seratonin. Down regulation of Dopamine receptors does occur in cases of abuse with cocaine, high dose amphetamine , etc, not with common medications for mood. Also people may have different levels of receptors without meds, thrill seekers needing more Dopamine release to feel a charge, . ...Read more

This blockade also affects all major neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin -- and in high doses, norepinephrine too. Dopamine effects are not in the exact same regions of the brain that other addictive substances affect, though. ...Read more

How do I increase acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin levels naturally?

How do I increase acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin levels naturally?

Think yours are low?: This is about the nervous system. What makes you think your "levels" are low? Neurotransmitters don't HAVE "levels". They don't just float around or circulate in blood. They're made in the terminal boutons of neurons, released into the synaptic cleft, & immediately either recycled & replaced or taken back up. Neurochemistry isn't just a New Age fad. REAL knowledge is power. Go arm yourself. ...Read more

Does latuda (lurasidone) block or create more dopamine and serotonin?

Does latuda (lurasidone) block or create more dopamine and serotonin?

Not exactly,...: Latuda (lurasidone) treats schizophrenia and bipolar depression, but its exact actions inside the brain is unknown. It may work by blocking certain dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain. That means it prevents dopamine and serotonin from attaching to those receptors, which are locations on brain cells that dopamine and serotonin would attach to if Latuda (lurasidone) molecules were not blocking those locations. ...Read more
