yes, that sounds like a reasonable explanation. What many antidepressants do is not to raise the total amount of a neurotransmitter chemical like Serotonin within the body, but make the amounts that are there ( and it's incredibly minute quantities at specific sites in the brain and between nerve endings, that mater ) more available and more effective. Temporarily a relative increase in the amount of serotonin available at specific sites might temporarily increase some of one's sense of anxiety, as one's brain and system adjusts to this, and in the longer term promoting greater stability.
