Serotonin (5-HT) For Pain Management

Serotonin (5-HT) For Pain Management

Has anyone tried serotonin (5-HT) for pain management? Serotonin is available on line and lots of information in the literature about serotonin playing role in pain modulation. If you have tried it would love to hear from you.

I have tried Kratom, poppy seed tea, CBD oil & MM. Still looking for alternative to pain meds

Thanks!
