Technically cyprohepdatine does block serotonin. It is a serotonin antagonist (meaning it blocks the actions of serotonin at certain serotonin receptors).

I know of no serotonin antagonists that block all serotonin receptors. Also, you wouldn't want to block serotonin at all receptors as you would mess up many systems in your body.

A few things that might help.

Zinc - increases the reuptake of serotonin (opposite to an SSRI)

Vitamin B2 - helps synthesize monoamine oxidase which metabolizes serotonin into other products

Theanine (in green tea) apparently reduces serotonin

Tyrosine - will reduce the absorption of tryptophan and (in theory) reduce serotonin

Melatonin - can reduce serotonin

Feverfew (herbal treatment for migraines) can reduce serotonin
