  1. You're not going to act on them; I'm the same way, I think about what exactly I don't want to think about. The very fact that your thinking what you DON'T want to think about, means that those thoughts are not your desires and you're not going to act on them. Make sense?
  2. Thanks for the input; definitely agree that things are way more complicated with crazy meds than they can seem on the surface. I mean, all SSRI'S have the same "main" mechanism of action, but someone can have no success with one and loads of success with another
  3. Does anyone know the mechanism behind AED's like Lamictal and hair loss?
  4. I can get behind that easily enough. Particularly the "religion is a result, not a cause", bit.
  5. I really didn't see anything inflammatory about it, I was being genuine And again, I'm an agnostic
  6. Wouldn't a bunch of people claiming something make a reputation? And the other one cites a report out of a scholarly journal where 48% reported an increase in fatigue; that is data Anyways I was just wondering if anyone had an answer pharmacologicaly speaking
  7. I'm not quite sure if you even know what we disagree on at this point...this is devolving
  8. I'm talking about SNRI'S being stimulating, not SSRI'S. I know SSRI'S can be stimulating through personal experience, Zoloft in particular. And it may just be me, but I thought Welbutrin was an NRI that acts as an antagonist at several naCh receptors?
  9. There are a lot of anecdotes http://www.depressionforums.org/forums/topic/95496-effexor-and-extreme-tiredness-and-some-trouble-sleeping/ http://www.depressionforums.org/forums/topic/53861-feel-like-a-zombie-on-effexor-xr/ http://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/f30/effexor-is-making-me-so-tired-190994/ http://www.crazymeds.us/CrazyTalk/index.php/topic/20563-avoid-fatigue-trouble-concentrating-etc/ http://www.drugwatch.com/effexor/ And that cites a study in which forty-eight percent of patients report increased fatigue. That's got to be a lot more than most SSRI'S, right?
  10. I spent 1-12th grade in Catholic school; I'm quite familiar with Christian theology thanks. And I'd say the majority of "mainstream" Christians still vote for the GOP (based of one or two ridiculous wedge issues), so their voting habits are certainly NOT helping LGBT rights, the homeless, the hungry, the disenfranchised etc etc You're Catholic, not protestant. The dogma is completely different. And if you say that moderate Christians (hell, moderate Catholics) vote conservatively, I'd like to see a link that supports your claim. Which I do believe you pulled out of your ass. I studied all Christian dogma rather thoroughly; wouldn't of graduated from that prep school otherise. Again, I wasn't looking for an argument. I was having an extremely unpleasant day, and wasn't thinking clearly when I made what I thought was a rather unassuming post... P.S. 75% of [white] Evangelical Christians voted for Romney according to Pew
  11. P.S. I thought my "a man of science can not be an atheist by the conventional definition" comment was innocent enough; Richard Dawkins himself said something similar on his facebook page. I was trying to be conciliatory to the opposing side of the aisle.

  13. Something I've always been curious about. Shouldn't the norepinephrine reuptake feature be stimulating? It seems like drugs such as Effexor get more complaints of severe fatigue than SSRI'S
  14. I do have a question for Christians though. It seems that many (I would say the more rational) believe that the Creation story is not to be taken literally. If so, and original sin is simply a fable, doesn't that negate the whole reason for J.C. coming to Earth to be sacrificed? Yes, your absolutely right. Science can't prove a negative. Science can't prove that there *isn't* a G-d. And that fact is what some people desperately cling to. But the scientific method requires EVIDENCE to prove or disprove a theory. You form a hypothesis, and research it. Currently, there is no scientific way to measure G-d. If you can give me some scientific evidence, I'll look at it. As it is, you have gotten the scientific method backwards. And as to "raw deals," I am a huge proponent of the "Shit Happens" school of thought. P.S. Oh, I'm a true atheist, baby. And you are blowing off a shitload of science. Do you not believe in any of it? Many (by no means all) scientists are atheists. But even the religious scientists believe in the scientific method. Do you think you understand scientific method better than thousands of scientists? Simmer down bro; how was I blowing off science?
