Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors

Other names: SSRIs

What are Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors block or delay the re-absorption of the neurotransmitter, serotonin, by the original (presynaptic) nerves it was released from. This effect increases the levels of serotonin in the synapses.

Serotonin is found more in areas of the brain that regulates mood. Low levels of serotonin in the synapses in these areas cause mood disorders such as depression. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are used to treat depression, stress and anxiety and panic disorder. Certain selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors may be used to treat other conditions such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia and so on.
