False

This theory, called Dales principle, is largely discredited. Many neurones make one small molecule neurotransmitter and one peptide neurotransmitter. However, in practical terms it is often useful to consider neurones as only making one neurotransmitter. For example, serotinergic neurones make serotonin.
