Therapeutic Class: SSRI
Fluoxetine is an SSRI. Fluoxetine increases serotonin levels within the central nervous system by preventing the re-uptake of serotonin at the level of the presynaptic neuron. This allows serotonin to accumulate in the synaptic cleft and affect the post-synaptic neuron. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter responsible for facilitating social interactions, general awareness, coping mechanism, and adaptability. SSRI drugs commonly are prescribed for humans as a part of the treatment of depression, anxiety disorders, compulsive disorders, and difficulty managing aggression. Fluoxetine must be administered for four to eight weeks before the full effect on serotonin levels is realized.
