Does anyone know about the so called borna virus that infects the human brain? They say it is a major cause of depression and other mood disorders. They said the majority of depressed individuals lack the antibody for the virus. It can cause other emotional problems such as anxiety, lack of concentration, poor memory and other psychiatric problems.

Amantadine is the drug used to eliminate the virus. Doctors have used it to cure their patients. The drug doesn't have a patent anymore so the drug companies stopped their research on the borna virus phenomenon.

I'm just wondering if anyone has ever been on Amantadine or heard of the virus.

Very interesting indeed. It seems they did away with the research for no apparent reason at all, perhaps because if this were true, a lot of medications by drug companies could be rendered useless, if was indeed what most patients had. Like one big money pot conspiracy.

I don't usually believe in conspiracies but as far as medical science goes, you can never be too sure of anything lol.
Yea just imagine the amount of money the drug companies would lose if they somehow found a cure to depression. Antidepressants make billions in profit for these companies. This sounds far-fetched but it wouldn't be unreasonable for the drug companies to be purposely infecting people with the virus. Lol talk about conspiracy theory.
