Got questions about how all of the meds we discuss on this site work in your brain? Look it up on the drug pages! OK, not all of the pages have that section, plus that part is far from the easiest to understand.

Recent stuff we've dug up regarding methods of action (pharmacodynamics) when putting people under knife and giving rats brain scans, or is it the other way around?

N.b. this isn't the place to ask about which drug is best for your specific condition. This board is all about what the drugs do in general.
