  • I have been on antidepressants plus a mood stabilizers. Granted I never talked to God on a one on basis, but I am pretty sure folks can have spiritual experiences.

  • That's all subjective to the individual in touch with their spirituality.

  • It means that the person posting feels that antidepressants block receptors in the brain that are some how connected to perceiving a spiritual experience.
    It means they feel that no one should be on antidepressants because it blocks spirituality IN THEIR OPINION.
    There is no study that could have been conducted to come to this conclusion.
    In other words this is their own personal prejudice.

  • It means nothing. It wasn't worth the time it took you to read it. I am a very spiritual person, and I've been on antidepressants almost continuously for twenty years or more. It's just an uneducated generalization posted by someone who doesn't know what he or she is talking about. Don't give it another thought.

  • It means nothing except that your friend is an idiot that doesn't have enough sense to keep his idiocy to himself. That's it.
