Our expert says:
I hope in time drigs will be developed that are far more narrowly targeted to specific brain sites and systems. As it is, they impact on particular individual or combinations of active brain chemicals, none of whoch have just one effect. SO, just as none of our problem conditions have only one single symptoms, neither do any of the drugs used to treat them. What may usefully stimulate mood, may unhelpfully also stimulate appetite, and so on.
And while a fai range of the effects and impact of an individual drug get studied when they are preparing evidence to get them registered for use, its uncommon ( the work is difficult, expensive, and rarely profitable to anyone potentially sponsoring them ) for there to be proper studies done of the effects of any combination of such meds, let alone of combining 2, 3, or more. Individual docs may accumulate personal experience of particular combinations, and may thus favour them and be more informative on them than the scientific literature or broader professional / expert opinion.
Appetite suppression as an unwanted side-effect occurs, but isn't generally called for, and meds used in treating obesity would only add to the complicated and unpredictable chemical soup one might induce.
Kitty says thanks for the scratches, and would offer to reciprocate, but she has noticed that Humans don't appreciate the involvement of claws.
