Seroquel Serotonin Dopamine Receptor Blocker
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

I know serotonin and dopamine are the main "happy chemicals" in your brain. What is the difference in the feelings/types of happiness they cause?

It would be an interesting study, but you'd need many well trained homeopaths, & patients willing to have lp's with treatment. ...Read more
