Wondeful lecture on our meds I found- part of an brief review series on psychopharmacoloy

I took notes on this lecture series and found a wealth of great information…Now it goes med-student fast so I recommend pausing and rewinding a lot for most people.

Maybe watch the first lecture in the series to learn the ropes of all meds, but these are the main points

  • with powerful effects come great side effects
  • the brain will adapt in opposition to drugs (more or less receptors due to more or less of the chemical flowing through)
  • drugs have opposite effects upon withdrawals
