(1) In reading about things related to CH, especially serotonin and lsd, the thought arose as to exactly "what is a serotonin psychosis, anyway?". The literature seems to refer to it but does not go into details, at least what I have been reading.

(2) Are serotonin psychosis and lsd psychosis related, and if so, how?

(3) Can high doses of Imitrex trigger a serotonin-type psychosis, or is there a different type of psyschosis related to triptans?


Footnote: During my divorce last year, my ex-wife's surgeon friend suggested that my use of Imitrex could induce a psychosis, but did not explain what she meant. We did not persue it at the time as there was litigation involved. It is now complete and I was just cleaning up loose ends.
