  3. Serotonin reuptake inhibitor - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serotonin_reuptake_inhibitor

    A serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) is a type of drug which acts as a reuptake inhibitor of the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, or 5-HT) by blocking the action of the serotonin transporter (SERT). This in turn leads to increased extracellular concentrations of serotonin and, therefore, an increase in serotonergic neurotransmission.

  4. Serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serotonin–norepinephrine...

    Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) selectively inhibit the reuptake of serotonin and are a widely used group of antidepressants. With increased receptor selectivity compared to TCAs, undesired effects such as poor tolerability are avoided.

    Selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (sNRIs) are a class of drugs that have been marketed as antidepressants and are used for various mental disorders, mainly depression and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

  6. Serotonin–dopamine reuptake inhibitor - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serotonin-dopamine...

    Sertraline (Zoloft) is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), but, uniquely among most antidepressants, it shows relatively high ( nanomolar) affinity for the DAT as well. As such, it has been suggested that clinically it may weakly inhibit the reuptake of dopamine, particularly at high dosages.

    Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are a group of medications. They are usually called SSRIs. They are used to treat depression, anxiety disorders, and some other problems. In many countries, SSRIs are prescribed more often than any other type of antidepressant. Examples of common SSRIs are fluoxetine, paroxetine, citalopram, and escitalopram.

    A discontinuation syndrome can occur after stopping any antidepressant including selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) and tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs).

  9. Sertraline - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sertraline

    Sertraline is a selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor. It targets the sodium dependent serotonin transporter to inhibit the re-uptake of serotonin by neurons. This increases the concentration of serotonin in the synaptic cleft, meaning more is available to act on the post synaptic neurons resulting in antidepressant effects.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serotonin_antagonist_and...

    Serotonin antagonist and reuptake inhibitors (SARIs) are a class of drugs used mainly as antidepressants, but also as anxiolytics and hypnotics. They act by antagonizing serotonin receptors such as 5-HT 2A and inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin, norepinephrine, and/or dopamine. Additionally, most also antagonize α 1-adrenergic receptors.
