Seroxat & SSRI User Group
The Seroxat User Group was set up by UK patients using the GlaxoSmithKline medication, Seroxat, to provide support and advice to users of the medication, and to their families and friends. We are a self-funding, non profit making group. Our web site contains information about the aims of the group, as well as research and articles on the effects of Seroxat.
Seroxat is a second generation SSRI (Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitor). SSRI’s work by inhibiting serotonin re-uptake transporters thereby increasing serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is a chemical which affects the mood. By boosting that chemical the patient should feel better. Seroxat’s original licence was to treat episodes of mild to moderate depression. It is now licensed for the short term treatment of symptoms of depressive illness.
