This right here gives excellent insight into why Love Potions in the HP universe are such a problem. Magic, Chemistry, who cares. A dose of such powerful feelings and chemicals causes major issues in the person taking them, and horrible setbacks once taken away. Just look at what the love potion did to Ron. And this pretty much explains why.
