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

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

The research, however, does not point out that these drugs are not effective or fail to help patients.

On the other hand, it also provoked some genuine questions about how people treat mental illness.
