hi linkadge,
this reminds me. I took a quiz today at a site about GABA, DOPAMINE, and all that good stuff.
At the end, I was evaluated and it said I would benefit from High dopamine, high GABA and of course serotonin-raising meds can you list any here that fit this description??? PLEASE
I see my doc tomorrow and will be having a long chat about my current med cocktail.
Thanks so much!
Kristen
