Dose when serotonin is high?
    #2708624 - 05/21/04 12:09 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

My girlfriend has high serotonin and used to take medecine for it, but not anymore. She want's to take mushrooms for her first time, but is skeptical because she thinks that her high level of serotonin will make her have a bad experience.

What do you guys think? I'm sorta clusless when it comes to psychology... I have yet to take classes.

I don't think there is such a thing as high serotonin or low serotonin levels. Serotonin levels very a huge amount.
Assuming she does have high serotonin, what exactly is the downfall of this? What problems could occur?
Perhaps it does exist and I just haven't heard of it. But since the levels very so much, I doubt they can say whos serotonin levels are too high and whos are too low.


Oh, I'm sure there will be no problem. It doesn't even make any sense how having a large amount of serotonin would cause a bad experience.

apparently there's a depression that is the result from her serotonin. She explains to me there's depression medecine that lowers serotonin and there's medecine that also does vice versa... ....

Yeah I assume that having large amounts of serotonin could lead to depression (as when levels drop it will feel more overwhelming? to person that has alot of serotonin instead of one who doesnt).

I dont still see how this could lead to bad experience, though I wouldnt take a shitload of shrooms first as she could be more sensitive? Or something.

Dont trust me I dont know for sure :smile:

serotonin isn't just a chemical in your brain that makes you happy. from what I understand, it allows you to feel emotions (and controls a whole lot of other shit, like diet, sleep, etc). I figure too little makes you apathetic, never a good feeling. Too much could probably make you overly sensitive, and prone to mood swings.

serotonin regulates your whole perception and consioness from what i understand. Dopamine would be hte feel good chemical.

aerotonin regulate sleep, moods, and emotinal state including depression.

too little makes you depressed to much makes you more social, talktive, empthitatic (sp?) ect. high serotonin is hardly a problem, i'm guessing she has low levels and takes a ssri to INCREASE serotonin levels not deplete them.

you get higher levels of serotonin when you fall in love or similar situations, if it actually were a problem your brain would down grade recptors to correct the situation, no drugs needed.

I have depression and when I have dosed when I have taken medication, I've taken up to 10 fresh shrooms, and NOTHING. since I've been taking shrooms, without meds, I trip lke crazy on three or four. It is true that meds can halt the trip....
