What would happen to your brain?

when you love someone, your brain goes crazy with chemicals, right? so if you love someone too much, would your brain drown in chemicals?

The chemicals in your brain aren't like liquid potions. You're not going to drown from loving someone.

Your brain will only produce a limited amount of dopamine. I don't think anyone has ever had an overdose of their own dopamine before. You only have a limited amount of receptors in your brain that can receive and process it so we are pretty protected from ourselves.

It wouldn't happen like that. Negative and positive feedback would balance out the chemicals to maintain homeostasis.

Being in love stimulates the brain to stimulate the adrenal glands which gives you a sense of excitement and euphoria...enjoy it.

Love makes us crazy
For one thing, love causes serotonin levels in the brain to drop, which may lead people to obsess about their lover.
The levels of serotonin, a chemical produced by the body, are also low in people who have obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Next, it ramps up production of the stress hormone cortisol, leading to slightly higher blood pressure and possible loss of sleep.
Scientists at the University of London have found that when people look at their new lover, the neural circuits that are usually in charge of social judgment are suppressed.
All in all, love kind of leaves you obsessive, stressed, and blind!

Your brain controls how much dopamine is released. But drugs work by causing your brain to release overdoses of it. That's why you get "high".
