For example, I was interested in vortioxetine (which I'm on right now) because I had read it acts on serotonin 5-HT3 receptors, which was interesting to me because I had never tried anything else with an effect on those receptors.

Yes (I mentioned above that I'm on it right now).

I was excited about that receptor, until I tried lurasidone, which turned out not to do much, if anything.

Yes. The agonism at serotonin 5-HT1A is interesting too. It's my understanding that vortioxetine has a more "full" agonism than most other agents active at this receptor.

Apparently, the actions at all these receptors allows vortioxetine to work at lower levels of serotonin transporter (SERT) occupancy than other SERT inhibitors.
