If I understand how the cones receive and send color signals to the brain properly, blue takes a lot of brain processing power as it magnifies the low blue cone number to blend it into the perceived image. This may be a way to filter out the blue to lighten the processing load on the brain. I'd love to hear the neuro-ophthalmologist's explanation.

As of Nov 15th, Due to high stress issues resulting in PTSD, docs put me on 3 meds. Clonazepam but only for 30 days ) .125 mgs twice daily (Doc presc. .25 mgs 2x daily but half a tablet is good) , citalopram (Celexa), an SSRI , and olanzapine (Zyprexa), an atypical anti-psychotic that usually causes weight gain before bed. I lost over 30 pounds since mid July. It just stopped the weight loss. Took me off the gabapentin. I am feeling better than I have in years.
This great feeling only lasted a month. Back to the same old PCS doldrums.
May 2014, I am off the olanzapine due to a 6 fold price increase. Back on 600 mgs of gabapentin before bed.
I am also taking L-Theanine to help with GABA regulation
