Serotonin Receptor Modulators (SRM)

Serotonin receptor modulators are antidepressant medications that may relieve neuropathic pain. These drugs work to achieve chemical balance within the brain by increasing the levels of serotonin and norepinephrine available to transmit messages to other nerves.

Serotonin receptor modulators include:

  • Nefazodone (Dutonin®)
  • Trazodone (Desyrel®)
