How to Raise Serotonin Levels
Prozac, which belongs to the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) class antidepressants is supposedly effective in lowering the symptoms of serotonin deficiency. It is a widely prescribed antidepressant all over the world. However, it does not produce serotonin in the body, as against the common belief, but only collects the existing serotonin, so that it can be used more effectively. Long term use of SSRI class antidepressants actually decreases the levels of serotonin in the body.
