Hi.  I have recently heard that studies are being conducted where
psilocybin is being testing in the treatment of obsessive compulsive
disorder.  This has made me curious because I have experimented with
mushrooms and it has also raised a question in my mind.

>From what I know about OCD it is usually treated with pro-serotonin
drugs like Luvox.  Now, mushrooms from what little I know about them
are sort of anti-serotonin and when you are on a SSRI it will
completely block their effects.  So what I'm getting at is... well now
I'm confused.  Uh, why do both seem to put OCD symptoms in remission?
