Vortioxetine is an atypical antidepressant with multimodal activity. It is a serotonin modulator and stimulator because although it has SERT inhibition properties, it is also a serotonin receptor agonist and antagonist.

It also exerts effects on norepinephrine, dopamine, glutamate, GABA, and the cholinergic system.
