Fluoxetine is an ST (5-hydroxytryptamine/serotonin/5-HT reuptake) inhibitor. This is a racemic mixture and both R and S enantiomers which are reported to inhibit 5-HT uptake in synaptosomal preparations of rat cerebral cortex. Additionally, Fluoxetine is also noted to increase extracellular levels of 5-HT in several areas of the rat brain as a result of reuptake inhibition. This increase in availability of 5-HT is reported to lead to a decrease in synthesis and turnover of 5-HT.
