The following is an email from Richard Goldfinch of the MHRA.

I asked the question

What constitutes a proper chemical balance of serotonin in the brain?

I have sent him a reply (see blue text at bottom)

Dear Mr Fiddaman

Our Reference FOI 06/396

Thank you for your letter of 4th December. I am writing to let you know that we are unable to provide the information you have requested.

Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) certain exemptions apply to the information we can make available. The information you have requested concerning the 'balance of serotonin in the brain' is subject to the exemption contained in the FOIA, namely Section 21 - 'information accessible to the applicant by other means.'

This type of information is published in the medical literature and you should contact your public library and request a literature search. To help you with this it may be useful to know that serotonin is also known by its chemical name '5-Hydroxytryptamine' and you need to look for review articles on the metabolism of this substance in the brain.

Dear Richard,

Let me rephrase my question.

Do the MHRA know 'What constitutes a proper chemical balance of serotonin in the brain?

Please answer yes or no.


Robert Fiddaman
