25% of the population has a gene marker on chromosome 22 that contribute to the metabolization of SSRI drugs very quickly, resulting in short lived beneficial results. Traditional medical practitioners typically stay within the mg dosage range of psychiatric medications, but for those who are rapid metabolizers, in an ideal world, they would be able to be prescribed higher dosages of the prescription drug.

They simply have a variation of the gene CYP2D6 or Cytochrome P450 that prevents them from obtaining positive lasting results from prescribed medications.
Some individuals choose to seek alternative methods to attain happiness. Ketamine protocols for depression can be followed as one example.

It is for these reasons that therapeutically assisted ibogaine is very helpful in the process of an individual achieving happiness. The plant medicine works on the deepest level of the psyche coupled with complementary counseling to facilitate the process.
