Previously anxiogenic and depressive behaviors exhibited by MSG treated rats were also related to an abnormal functioning of serotonergic system [26].
However, some of the tested drugs, such as buspirone, are non-selective agonists of 5-HT receptors; therefore, caution is required when interpreting the outcomes from these studies based on exclusive changes in the serotonergic system.
Several data of our study may suggest that the serotonergic system have secondary participation in the actions of TA in the FST since: (a) TA did not synergize with the serotonin selective reuptake inhibitor, FLX, to enhance their antidepressant-like actions in mice; (b) TA increases the turnover rate of 5-HT in contrast with FLX, which induces a reduction in the turnover rate of 5-HT in the whole brain of mice.

We have used what is known as neuroendocrine techniques to show that it is principally the serotonergic system in the brain that is seriously impaired by alcohol.
However this only held true at lower doses whilst higher doses resulted in fewer head twitches suggesting that the effects on the serotonergic system are more complex than previously thought.
Side effects are comparable to other antidepressants that affect the serotonergic system, and there is a hint that this drug causes less weight gain and sexual dysfunction.
