So this 2nd messenger system is inhibitory downstream after the serotonin binds to the post-synaptic receptor.

As depression is independently associated with negative pregnancy outcomes, determining the extent to which observed associations between antidepressant use and specific adverse outcomes reflects a causative relationship has been difficult in some cases.
