Drugs That Focus On Neurotransmitter In The Brain.

Is anyone taking a anti-epileptic drug that focuses on neurotransmitters in the brain as thier one of the main pathways that calm electrical activity in the brain. Or any drugs that just focus primarily on neurotransmitters.

cbd. cbd interacts with the serotonin 1A receptor as an agonist in these key brain areas, which is likely a cause of its anxiolytic and anti-depressant effects. in simple terms, it will relax the stress, anxiety, and depression receptors (with other stuff).
