What are neurotransmitters?
Neurotransmitters are signal molecules in your brain, and therefore have an incredible effect on your day to day activities, energy, and feelings. Prescription anti-depressants increase or decrease their levels artificially, and yet come with undesirable side effects. Side effects may include sexual dysfunction, fatigue, weight gain and even suicidal thoughts. Many people use different substances or activities (smoking, drinking alcohol, illegal drugs, compulsive eating, sugar cravings, gambling) to alter the levels of neurotransmitters so they feel normal.
