NOEL G, APRIL 4, 2016 Caffeine may exacerbate anxiety.Many antidepressants in the SSRI and SNRI classes increase serotonin levels in the blood, which shortens the lifespan. Drugs that lower serotonin have the opposite effect. Anti-serotonin drugs include cyproheptadine, which improves depressive symptoms and also lowers adrenaline. Outside the United States, doctors prescribe tianeptine to treat depression.Other substances that lower anxiety include the hormone progesterone, as well as amino acids L-theanine, L-lysine, and taurine. Thyroid hormone may decrease symptoms of anxiety.Lisuride has some serotonin-like effects and may cause serotonin syndrome when combined alongside similar drugs.11. Silbergeld EK, Hruska RE.
