TLDR
It is hypothesized, that in women, the use of female sex steroids leads to a downregulation of 5-HT2C receptors that contributes to atypical depressive symptoms and premenstrual dysphoria and therapeutic response to 5- HT2 antagonists/agonists may be used as a diagnostic tool to dissect subgroups of depression.
