    How Buspirone Mixed with Melatonin to Make an Antidepressant

    In 2012, psychiatrists at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital discovered a novel antidepressant. It seemed to improve depression and cognition without causing any significant side effects.

Kelly-ji ,

Low dose with huge effect size

I have been a longtime fan of the Carlat Report. It is engaging, highly practical, succinct, and--CRUCIALLY--free of industry influence.

The podcast formulates an already delightful format into bite sized morsels that are packed with flavor and highly satisfying.

I enjoy both the longer segments as well the 60 second podcasts.

Fantastic job! Keep up the great work.
