selective serotonin

« Back to Glossary Index

Selective serotonin (also known as 5-HT) is a type of neurotransmitter found in the brain. It is involved in many processes, including mood regulation, appetite, sleep, and memory. Low levels of serotonin can lead to depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are a type of antidepressant medication that work by increasing the levels of serotonin in the brain. SSRIs are commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. Common SSRIs include fluoxetine, sertraline, and paroxetine. Side effects of SSRIs can include nausea, insomnia, headache, and drowsiness. It is important to talk to your doctor about any potential side effects before taking an SSRI.
