How can you cure love sickness?

Answer

Some scientists have tried medications typically used to treat mental health ailments, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, to treat lovesickness. In addition, increasing the body's supply of neural chemicals dopamine and oxytocin is helpful in defeating lovesickness. Also successful are attempts to treat lovesickness as a type of post-traumatic stress disorder and using therapy designed to replace bad memories.

Psychologists are increasingly taking lovesickness seriously as a mental disorder worthy of treatment. Lovesickness occurs when one is rejected by a lover or suffers unrequited love. Symptoms of lovesickness overlap with those of psychiatric disorders, such as mania, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Antidepressants and other drugs that boost serotonin in the body are already known to minimize extreme emotions and romantic bonds, so they are considered strong possibilities for the chemical treatment of lovesickness. Oxytocin and dopamine are both vital in the mental formation of emotional bonds. When a person is in love, levels of these chemicals are boosted. Since the mind requires them for proper emotional function, psychologists recommend that lovesick people should find a new source for dopamine and oxytocin. Exercise boosts dopamine levels, and social interaction increases oxytocin levels, so both are recommended for those seeking a cure for lovesickness.
