20 types of Serotonin

Hey,
For all of you trying medications, my doc recently told me that there are about 20 types of serotonin and each antidepressant effects different types, so sometimes you just have to keep trying different medications until you find the right one. It took me over 2 years to find the right combination. just a thought

Sorry there is only one type of serotonin but several types of serotonin receptors.

Re: 20 types of Serotonin

That might explain why I've been on 8 different antidepressants.
