Serotonin modulators

What are serotonin modulators? 

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter. Atypical antipsychotics are thought to have some affinity for serotonin 5-HT receptors, for example clozapine, quetiapine, and olanzapine, among others. This suggests a potential for the use of serotonin-specific medications in the treatment of schizophrenia.

What is the evidence for serotonin modulators?

Low quality evidence is unable to determine any benefit of Ondansetron as an alternative to antipsychotics.
