Hello and welcome to my website which covers the good and bad effects of drugs that affect the brain (neuro-pharmacology), and especially drug interactions. I am an internationally acknowledged authority on the drug interaction called Serotonin Toxicity (ST), aka Serotonin Syndrome (SS). That requires me to be also expert in drug adverse reactions and interactions involving most drugs that affect the nervous system, especially: MAOIs, TCAs, SSRIs and SNRIs.

The site is all written and funded by me: I am Dr Ken Gillman, a ‘Clinical Neuro-pharmacologist’ and a retired clinical psychiatrist. I have published many scientific review papers about neuro-pharmacology in prestigious journals. Details are in my ‘Google Scholar’ profile which is public & in the ‘Publications’ menu:

This web site provides free information and expert critical analysis on many aspects of neuro-pharmacology. This illustrates that drugs do not necessarily do what pharmaceutical companies think, or claim, they do. So, there is discussion about the influences that distort and degrade the accuracy and standard of much of the science that we might read (see menu ‘Bias in science’).

Psychotropical could use some 'technical' assistance: see here if you might be able to help:


There is a little more information in ‘Philosophy and motivation’ about the website. But most important, if you think the information is good then do all you can to spread the word in forums, tweets, blogs, whatever!

Feedback is important. I encourage anyone with questions and comments to contact me.
