Answer: 
The serotonin syndrome is "Hyperserotonergic state" which is due to some drugs that increase serotonin levels in the brain like the Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors(Antidepressants). It is a side effect of these drugs. The symptoms include, shivering, muscle rigidity, euphoria, drowsiness. References:: http://www.antidepressantsfacts.com/serotonin-syndrome-ADF.htm
