Serotonin

Type: 
Consumer

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter compound critical to the nervous system. Sufferers of migraine and other headaches probably have altered serotonin processing, which results in blood vessel dilation, inflammation and resultant pain. Many medications that are effective in both preventing and aborting migraine and other vascular headaches modify serotonin actions.
