Stimulants like adderal and caffeine are known for slowing adrenal function and have long term affects on it's function, IBD's do this too and are one cause of the fatigue.

You are right, this does feel like a nice hot cup of serotonin. I just read a little on it and I don't see that anything I am doing, taking, or eating would increase the levels. Any thoughts?? My body temperature is much lower than it was before CD. As for sleep, not much of a difference (7 - 8 hours a night).
I also read about some serious cardiac effects of seratonin syndrome, but as long as I feel this way I wouldn't care. Everything just feels nice and even my job doesn't stress me out as much ... And I thought I was just learning to handle it better. Thanks Sno. I am wondering if my disease is really quiet and I am not under stress from any inflammation. I don't have any other CD symptons (prasie God!) except that I got 3 nasty abscesses in the same place that came with 2 setons. So I can't tell if my disease is in remission. I haven't had an abscess since May, so maybe the 6MP is really doing some good?? Maybe its because I was low on vitamin D for so long and now I'm in the normal range?? I don't know, so I will go have another mug of hot chocolate and enjoy the mellow feeling!
