SSRI vs Psychedelics
I’m researching effects of psychedelic drugs on depression and I’m a bit confused with how exactly psychedelics achieve their effects as compared to traditional SSRI’s. Obviously these two different types of drugs yield very different responses. However, my understanding is that they both fundamentally work by increasing serotonin in the brain. What is the key distinction between psychedelics and SSRI’s that leads to such different effects on the brain?
