Preventing serotonin syndrome in patients that require the use of multiple serotonergic drags to treat various conditions can be challenging.
Additionally, the authors proposed that, based on the findings, methanolic extract of Asparagus racemosus probably attenuates anxiety behaviour through modulation of the amygdalar serotonergic and norepinephrinergic systems.
The objective of the trial was to assess the proportion of subjects reporting at least one of nine common potential serotonergic adverse events (headache, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, dry mouth, diarrhea, vomiting, insomnia, and/or anxiety) from baseline to the end of treatment.
In the literature on the etiology of OAB, the importance of low serotonergic function is particularly emphasized for urinary system physiology and OAB pathophysiology as well as for many psychiatric conditions such as depression and anxiety (24).
The animals treated with this extract showed increased head twitches similar to the positive control drug, indicating an increase in serotonergic activity in vivo.
3] antagonists such as ondansetron were avoided because a proposed mechanism of action for calcitonin is via the serotonergic system (4).

Research has indicated that pedophiles may have a serotonergic dysfunction, most likely caused by the decreased activity of the presynaptic serotonergic neuron and hypersensitivity of the serotonin-2 postsynaptic receptors.
