It will be interesting to see if vilazodone (Viibryd), a serotonin reuptake inhibitor and 5-HT1a receptor agonist, possesses a reduced risk of a dysphoric reaction. If 5-HT1a stimulation does not prevent tardive dysphoria, perhaps to attack it from the other angle using pindolol as a 5-HT1a autoreceptor antagonist might work. I need to think about these two opposing effects on neurotransmission more to be able to predict which of the two angles makes more sense.

> Got a nasty migraine yesterday so I reached for the old trusty Axert (almotriptan). Got curious after I saw this post about drugs that affect serotonin receptor subtypes so I looked up the Axert info and discovered that it is a "potent 5-HT1B/1D serotonin agonist". I guess this class of headache drugs don't have beneficial mood effects or I probably would have heard about it by now.


I'm afraid that I don't know much about those serotonin receptors. Currently, I don't know of any antidepressant that works on them. However, lithium does target the 5-HT1b receptor, and thus modulates the serotonin system.

Linkadge is the best resource for describing the properties of various receptors.
