One study that found depression not caused by low levels of serotonin, the “happy hormone,” has become one of the most talked about and shared medical articles in recent months.

This finding sparked a wave of misinformation about antidepressant medications, many of which increase the amount of serotonin in the brain.

However, the research does not indicate that these medications are not effective or fail to help patients.

On the other hand, it has also raised some real questions about how people are treated for mental illness.
