Fluoxetine hydrochloride is a psychotropic agent and one of the initial members of the anti-depressant class of drugs known as selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It is the active ingredient of Prozac®.
Fluoxetine hydrochloride has been used to study its effect on the binding ability of the radiopharmaceutical 123I-labeled 2-((2-((dimethylamino)methyl)phenyl)thio)-5-iodophenylamine ([123I]ADAM) to SERT (serotonin transporters) in mice. It has also been used for the chronic treatment of light deprived animals.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor; antidepressant.
