Sometimes, peoples' brains produce too much, or not enough, of one chemical, causing an imbalance. The imbalance can be corrected with these medications. Depression is a real thing. Imagine just being sad for years, with no real reason. Nothing happened to cause such sadness, you just are. And then you sit there for days trying to figure out why you feel so hopeless, what could possibly be the root of the problem, but you can't think of anything, and that makes you feel worse.
Or having something happen and you want to be happy, and you know you should be happy because it's a good thing that happened, but you just can't. You try and try, but the more you try, the more hopeless you feel.
You wake up in the morning, and you can't find a single reason to get out of bed. Food tastes bland and colors are dull.
All anyone ever says to you is "why are you so miserable, cheer up", or "You should smile more" and you hear these things and you want so badly to be able to just flip off the despair like a switch, but you can't, because your serotonin levels are too low, which is causing the imbalance.
Medication can raise the level of your serotonin your brain produces, making it possible to feel again.

And when you're Bi-Polar, your dopamine and seratonin levels can't regulate, so you go through massive mood swings.

I thought only girls had oxytocin and guys have tryptophan
#53 - lexieisdabomb (12/04/2013) [-]
Pretty sure oxytocin is a hormone released by the posterior pituitary gland during childbirth to contract the uterine muscles until the baby is born. It doesn't make you feel emotions of "love" for another human. My anatomy/physiology professors nailed this into our heads because it's a perfect example of positive feedback loops in the body. Just sayin'.

Don't forget endocannabinoids!
User avatar #22 - TheMather ONLINE (12/04/2013) [+] (1 reply)
I'd say I might have reduced serotonin levels and elevated noradrenaline/adrenaline levels. That would match both my diet and how I feel like **** , but like I should fight back rather than let myself be defeated.
Well, either that or my life just sucks and I'm coping like a champ.

so what might one call Noradrenaline spikes?
