No.  If you were to inject just 5-HT (serotonin) systemically, it won't
cross the blood-brain barrier to any significant degree.  The level of 5-HT
in the brain would remain unchanged even after injecting a large dose of
serotonin peripherally.  Unless you injected serotonin into the ventricles
(intracerebroventicular), then it might be possible.   Also the comment
about a reuptake compound doesn't really make all that much sense.  I'm not
to sure what you mean.
