User :   Does Mirtazapine in any way help beat a lie detector test - I'm not taking it - my husband, a physician is looking into it.
Doctor :   hello
User :   hi
Doctor :   i am Dr here
User :   does my question make sense?
Doctor :   how can i help you?
User :   my husband will be taking a lie detector test in the near future and what medications could be used to beat the test? Is Mirtazapine one of them?
Doctor :   may i know his age please ?
User :   58
Doctor :   the said medication is a anti depressant
User :   yes but it's other affects are what I am questioning
Doctor :   and in no way it will help in avoiding the test as the parameter used are not affected by this medication
User :   ok thank you - what medications could be used - perhaps an "alpha" blocker? i might not have that right
Doctor :   lie detector is an instrument that measures and records several physiological indices such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity
Doctor :   well its all about keeping calm
Doctor :   thats the only way
User :   atenanol?
User :   so certainly there are medications that help keep calm?
Doctor :   the medications have other side effects that can be caught
User :   so those side effects can be picked up by examiner of test?
Doctor :   breathing exercise will help
User :   well i'm not wanting him to beat the test - I'm wanting him to be honest
User :   i need to find out what tricks a physician like himself could use which would invalidate the test results
Doctor :   well i can assure you that NO MEDICATIONS can be of any use
User :   because of the side effects?
Doctor :   yes
User :   ok - well I appreciate your help. thank you very much
