Serotonin counts are NEVER part of regular, expert, management of any psych condition, so I wonder who you are seeing, and who recommended this odd procedure. ONLY consider the views of a fully qualified psychiatrist in such matters, and probably consider getting more than one opinion if one of them wants to take this test seriouslt.
In the diagnosis or to monitor a patient after the removal of a carcinoid tumour which would have been producing excessively high levels of such substances, it might be considered. Effective serotonin levels will vary according to how they are measured, where and when they are measured, and are not used in assessing psych conditions.
