Episode 94: More questions posed, and more answers composed – Benzos, serotonin syndrome, big pressures and low doses

In episode 94, we get to yet more listener questions and provide vague, yet deep and thoughtful answers. We talk about the use of benzodiazepines, serotonin syndrome, buspirone, ‘urgent’ hypertension and pontificate even more on low doses. Mike and James realise that while low is often a good way to start, all their podcasts to date start of with high expectations yet end with not much more of an effect than placebo.
