Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
I am in recovery from alcohol and drugs, this year after 10 years of continuous sobriety, I believe that some of the scripts have a side effect of drug seeking behavior, ultimately I want to be narcotic free, and probably need to see a psychiatrist to get the anti psychotic right, worried about taking Paxil, Chantix, Buspar, all help with depression, but is that to much dopamine or serotonin, not sure which one, but couldn't that be too many different anti depressants in a day
