> At 2.5 mg would zyprexa boost or reduce levels of dopamine? I have heard contradictory reports about this.

all anti-psychotics decrease dopamine...period. Thats why they have the dopamine "antagonism" mechanism built into them. Dopamine antagonism is the main thing that combats psychosis. Zyprexa doesnt increase serotonin either. Blocking dopamine is blocking your ability to experience pleasure.

> at 2.5 mg it would boost serotonin, right? would need a serotoninergic antidepressant to do that (prozac, effexor, MAOIs, etc.).


> Ace.........
