In reply to paradoxical reactions to drugs?, posted by sadienan on March 27, 2008, at 15:19:12

Well if any doctors or researchers knew why paradoxical reactions happened they would be richer than they already are. :-)

Here are my own semi-hypothetical reasonings:

1. The dopamine receptors are either over or under sensitized. That's why a prescription drug similar to cocaine (ritalin) will calm one person down and turn another into a maniac.

2. Adrenal insufficiency (hypoadrenalism, adrenal fatigue, low cortisol, reverse circadian cortisol pattern). Everything that happens with brain chemistry and mind medicines is ultimately orchestrated by cortisol and thyroid.

3. Thyroid out of balance. Perhaps lab results that appear normal, yet are not optimal for that person.

4. Heavy metal burden. Mercury and/or lead can throw everything out of whack to where nothing makes sense.
