Market Synopsis of global serotonin syndrome market: Market scenario:
Serotonin syndrome is a group of symptoms such as high body temperature, agitation, increased reflexes, tremor, sweating, dilated pupils, diarrhoea etc. due to use of serotonergic drugs. Serious complications such as seizures and extensive muscle breakdown may occur which may lead to death. The 1984, Libby Zion case is an example of death from serotonin syndrome. Serotonin syndrome is typically caused by synergistic effect of two or more serotonergic drugs which generally include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI), monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), amphetamines etc. Other drugs with a high propensity of causing serotonin syndrome are dextromethorphan, buspirone, L-tryptophan, St. John's wort, metoclopramide, ondansetron etc. There is no laboratory test to confirm the diagnosis of serotonin syndrome.

The treatment for serotonin syndrome consists of discontinuing medications contributing to the condition. For serious cases, other treatments for managing associated symptoms may be used. For serious cases with a threat to life gastrointestinal decontamination using activated charcoal is performed. Sedatives such as benzodiazepines are used for agitated patients. High fever is a common symptom of serotonin syndrome which reaches extremely high temperatures greater than forty centigrade. To control hyperthermia cooling measures may be needed. Serotonin antagonist such as cyproheptadine may be needed.

The serotonin syndrome market restraints are the low number of cases and equally low number of fatalities associated with the syndrome with less than 1% cases consuming serotonin syndrome causing drugs developing the diseases. Mild symptoms occur in about 15% of SSRI overdoses.

Considering all these factors, the serotonin syndrome market is expected to reach $ 400 million by the end of 2023, this market is projected to growing at a CAGR of ~ 2.3 % during 2017-2023.
