A correlation was found between decreased binding and behavioural improvement in eight out of nine dogs. The 5-HT(2A) receptor binding index was significantly reduced after citalopram hydrobromide treatment in all cortical regions but not in the subcortical area. None of the dogs displayed alterations in perfusion on the post-treatment scans.

Citalopram is a selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor that has demonstrated antidepressant efficacy in numerous controlled clinical trials. Additional studies have shown that the drug benefits patients with other illnesses that are related in some way to serotonergic dysfunction, including anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, premenstrual dysphoria, alcohol dependence and the behavioural disturbances of dementia. This paper reviews the full spectrum of citalopram's clinical efficacy, as well as its safety and tolerability, in a range of patients.

Behavioural aspects of about 150 patients are described, and include a variable degree of mental retardation, impulsivity, distractibility, instability of mood and stereotypies. In general, patients with RTS are described as sociable and friendly. Information about brain pathology is virtually absent. In about half of the cases, the syndrome is caused by a mutation or deletion of the CREB-binding protein (CBP) gene (16p13.3). The case report deals with an adult male who was referred for impulsivity and temper outbursts. A provisional diagnosis of atypical depression was made, and treatment with citalopram resulted in a remarkable amelioration of his mood and behaviour that persisted for more than 2 years (last observation).

Many new guidelines and studies of interest to the geriatric population have emerged in the areas of falls and fracture prevention, cardiovascular care, depression, and Alzheimer disease. Some of these guidelines and studies translate to immediate changes that should be made to clinical practice; others are new areas of controversy.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common anxiety disorder, which often causes significant impairment of the affected individual's social, occupational or interpersonal functioning. Previous reports suggest that the disorder may be treated with the tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine, and also with the more recently introduced selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, sertraline and paroxetine. The present 24-week open pilot study was designed to examine the efficacy, appropriate dose range, side-effects and clinical usefulness of citalopram in OCD. A total of 29 OCD patients were included in the study, of whom 76% showed alleviation of symptoms as evaluated by various self- and observer-rated scales, such as the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale. In most cases the citalopram doses used were in most cases 40 or 60 mg daily, and the treatment was well tolerated. The most commonly experienced adverse events during the study were nausea, vomiting, increased dreaming and decreased sleep. Diminished sexual desire and orgasmic dysfunction were also reported. Despite having the limitations of an open study, our results suggest that citalopram may be effective in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are used as treatment for generalized and specific social phobias (social anxiety disorders). The efficacy of citalopram, an SSRI, for the treatment of social anxiety disorders has not yet been fully evaluated. These cases suggest that citalopram may be an effective treatment for social anxiety disorder (social phobia). These cases are consistent with two other published reports with citalopram from outside the US. Randomized controlled studies are warranted.

At baseline, GAD patients reported significantly impaired quality of life compared with the general population. During the 12-week open-label treatment period, treatment responders reported significant improvements in HRQoL on all dimensions of the SF-36 (p < 0.001) and on-the-job productivity (p < 0.001), whereas sick leave decreased but did not reach statistical significance. After randomization, relapsed patients reported significantly lower QoL than non-relapsed patients on all 4 SF-36 mental health dimensions (p < 0.001). Relapsed patients reported slightly lower on-the-job productivity than non-relapsed patients and scored lower on the work efficacy and work satisfaction VAS scales.

Escitalopram is the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) most recently approved for use in the United States. It is structurally related to citalopram, but is felt to have a more tolerable side-effect profile than its parent compound. Side effects are not generally serious and include headache, diarrhea, and nausea. While hyponatremia and the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) have been associated with treatment with other SSRIs, there has only been one case of escitalopram-induced SIADH reported in the literature to date. We now report another case of a patient who developed SIADH after being treated with escitalopram for 4 weeks. The patient's hyponatremia improved following the discontinuation of escitalopram. Clinicians should be aware of this uncommon but significant side effect of SSRIs and monitor high-risk patients for the development of SIADH.

The effect of extended anti-depressant treatment on weight has been poorly investigated. Also unknown is whether different compounds have differential effects. The aim of the present study was to assess changes in weight in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) patients treated for 2.5 years with clomipramine or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

Taken together, our data demonstrate that p11 levels are regulated by BDNF in vitro and in vivo and that the antidepressant-like effect of BDNF in two well-established behavioral models requires p11. These data support a role for p11 in the antidepressant activity of neurotrophins.

The role of serotonin in stress and anxiety, particularly in social environments, is not well understood. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are useful for patients that experience social anxiety; however, their mechanism of action has not been fully characterized. Dopamine is known to operate in different temporal modes (fast phasic, intermediate, and tonic changes). We hypothesized that serotonin may also operate in temporal modes in the context of social stress. We used wireless voltammetry (4 Hz) to investigate changes in extracellular ventral striatal serotonin and dopamine during a test of repeated social interactions between two rats. Test rats (electrode-implanted; n = 5) and counter rats (n = 6) were placed in separate sections of a partitioned box. The partitions were raised to allow interactions for 10 min; four sessions were repeated at 10-min intervals. In the first session, serotonin increased gradually, then peaked at approximately the end of the interaction, and decreased rapidly between sessions. This slow phasic increase in serotonin diminished gradually (but significantly) in subsequent interactions. Test rats received active, one-sided contacts (chasing, walking-over, and occasional attacking behavior) from counter rats. Changes in contact times were not correlated with changes in phasic serotonin increases. Dopamine levels did not increase. Citalopram caused significant suppression of slow phasic increases, caused tonic increases in basal serotonin concentrations, and caused active (chasing, all grooming), but not aggressive behavior in test rats. These findings implied that the slow phasic serotonin increase in the ventral striatum induced adaptation to social stress caused by a counter rat; moreover, the tonic increase in serotonin promoted the adaptive change and caused socially dominant behavior.

59 patients have been selected among the patients affected by PE observed at the outpatient department of Urology and Andrology of the "Paolo Giaccone" University Policlinic Hospital of Palermo. Diagnosis was confirmed unequivocally in all patients, who were suitable for drug treatment and accepted to participate in the study. They were divided in 2 groups: one receiving Dapoxetine (41 patients), another (18 patients) receiving Citalopram. Patients were followed up by telephone at monthly intervals, in order to compare compliance, efficacy and side effects:

The OBX rats treated with citalopram (OBX-CTP) have the same 5-HT synthesis rates as the sham-operated rats treated with citalopram (Sham-CTP). The OBX-CTP rats, relative to the OBX rats treated with saline (OBX-SAL), showed a reduction in the majority of the terminal brain structures, suggesting a normalization of 5-HT synthesis in the OBX-CTP rats following treatment. The OBX-SAL rats have significantly greater synthesis than the Sham-SAL rats in a majority of the terminal structures, but lower rates in the dorsal raphe. A few structures in the OBX-CTP group have lower synthesis than in the Sham-SAL group (e.g., dorsal raphe, hippocampus, amygdala). The data suggest that receptors in some brain areas are likely still responsive to the elevated levels of the extracellular 5-HT produced by citalopram.

The in vitro autoradiographic technique was used to characterize the distribution of serotonin 5-HT1 and 5-HT2 receptors and uptake sites in 11 cortical areas of frontal, parietal, and occipital lobes in the rhesus monkey; 5-HT1 receptors were labeled with [3H]5-HT; 5-HT2 receptors were labeled with [3H]ketanserin; and 5-HT uptake sites were labeled with [3H]citalopram. Five-HT1 and 5-HT2 receptors and 5-HT uptake sites were found in every cortical area examined with the absolute concentration of 5-HT1 receptors higher than that of 5-HT2 receptors in all areas. In eight regions of prefrontal and parietal as well as in prestriate cortex, 5-HT1 and 5-HT2 receptors had complementary distribution profiles: 5-HT1 receptors were concentrated in layers I and II and the upper strata of layer III, while 5-HT2 receptors had their highest concentration throughout layers III and IV. Only the primary motor and visual cortex had receptor distributions different from that described above. Thus, in the primary visual cortex, both 5-HT1 and 5-HT2 receptors were found in high concentration in sublayer IVc beta, though the density of 5-HT1 receptor was also high in other subdivisions of layer IV and in layers III, V, and VI. In the primary motor cortex, both receptor subtypes were concentrated in layers I and II and the upper strata of layer III. The pattern of distribution of serotonin uptake sites did not match the patterns of distribution of either 5-HT1 or 5-HT2 receptors alone; rather it approximated the combined patterns of distribution of both receptor subtypes. The complementary patterns of distribution of 5-HT1 and 5-HT2 receptors in most areas of the monkey cerebral cortex suggest that these two receptor subtypes may make differential contributions to cortical functions.

The clinical efficacy of current antidepressant therapies is unsatisfactory; antidepressants induce a variety of unwanted effects, and, moreover, their therapeutic mechanism is not clearly understood. Thus, a search for better and safer agents is continuously in progress. Recently, studies have demonstrated that zinc and magnesium possess antidepressant properties. Zinc and magnesium exhibit antidepressant-like activity in a variety of tests and models in laboratory animals. They are active in forced swim and tail suspension tests in mice and rats, and, furthermore, they enhance the activity of conventional antidepressants (e.g., imipramine and citalopram). Zinc demonstrates activity in the olfactory bulbectomy, chronic mild and chronic unpredictable stress models in rats, while magnesium is active in stress-induced depression-like behavior in mice. Clinical studies demonstrate that the efficacy of pharmacotherapy is enhanced by supplementation with zinc and magnesium. The antidepressant mechanisms of zinc and magnesium are discussed in the context of glutamate, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) hypotheses. All the available data indicate the importance of zinc and magnesium homeostasis in the psychopathology and therapy of affective disorders.

The case reported here involves an 81-year-old Caucasian woman whose past ocular history was unremarkable except for high hyperopia and cataract. The patient developed ocular symptoms 2 days after starting duloxetine, a serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) and was diagnosed with acute ACG. The elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) was successfully lowered with medical treatment, and the patient was advised to discontinue duloxetine. She subsequently underwent laser iridotomy in both eyes, and her IOP remained adequately controlled. A score of 6 was obtained using the Naranjo adverse drug reaction probability scale, suggesting duloxetine as the probable cause of the attack of ACG in this patient.

The study presented here shows that GC-MS with ion trap detection can be used for screening post mortem blood. The method described was used to simultaneously screen for unknowns, identify basic drugs present and semi-quantitate 14 drugs commonly encountered in coroner's toxicology (i.e. was used to determine whether the drugs were present in sub-therapeutic, therapeutic or greater than therapeutic amounts). The equipment used included a Varian Saturn 2000 GC-MS operating in full scan mode, a CP-3800 GC, a CP-8400 autosampler and Saturn GC-MS workstation Version 5.5 software. Post mortem blood samples were extracted using a standard liquid-liquid procedure; diethylether followed by back extraction into 0.1 M HCl. Standard curves for the 14 drugs which were semi-quantitated (amitriptyline, citalopram, clozapine, cocaine, cyclizine, diazepam, dihydrocodeine, dothiepin, methadone, mirtazapine, procyclidine, sertraline, tramadol, venlafaxine) were prepared covering the concentration range 0-1.0 ug/mL. The procedure buy lexapro is in routine use for coroners toxicology; semi-quantitation has been used (i) to speed-up the through put of cases where drugs are an incidental finding and (ii) for cases where the amount of sample submitted for analysis was too small to allow for screening, identification and quantitation on separate sample volumes.

Depression and behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) have a significant impact on the worsening of dementia because they increase the cognitive and functional decline and they have a significant impact on the vital prognosis. Physicians should be particularly careful in the use of antidepressants in the elderly, particularly in the frail elderly. Indeed, most studies have included patients aged at least 65 years without frailty criteria, but rarely those aged over 75 years and/or frail. As they are used in clinical practice, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, which initially appeared to have low risks, have been associated with many and dangerous adverse effects, particularly in elderly subjects. At present, there is a lack of data to assess the benefit-risk ratio of antidepressants in the treatment of depression and BPSD in patients with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. Among the drugs frequently used in studies in order to evaluate these indications, citalopram and moclobemide are those associated with a low risk of adverse events and a significant effectiveness on depression signs and behavioural and BPSD. It is necessary to assess the effectiveness and adverse buy lexapro effects of antidepressants in demented elderly subjects through several studies.

Many medications in common clinical use consist of "mirror image" isomers that differ only in the direction in which they rotate plane-polarized light. These stereoisomers exist as mixtures of "right" and "left" handed molecules that are the product of chemical syntheses. However, the biochemical milieu of the human body is a highly stereospecific environment where the fit of medication and receptor may depend on the shape of the molecule in 3-dimensional space. Recent advances in chemistry have allowed the more buy lexapro ready preparation of single isomers of various drugs that were previously available only as racemic mixtures. For those compounds in which the isomers differ in stereospecificity, this separation into single isomers can result in significant changes in potency, tolerability, and efficacy. This article reviews some basic information about stereochemistry and describes the development of a new single isomer antidepressant, escitalopram, which is one of the components of the widely used selective serotonin uptake inhibitor citalopram.

The aim of the study was to optimize psychopharmacotherapy in a big psychiatric hospital. It was conducted in Moscow Alekseev psychiatric hospital No 1, using a method of comparison of standard psychotropic treatment and medication strategy suggested by the expert group. An analysis of the treatment of 966 patients with different mental disorders revealed that 78.3% were in need of neuroleptic assignment that buy lexapro was in line with routine practice. The expert's conclusions were postulated as follows: a need in phenothyazines is significantly lower than that observed in practice. Xantens and tyoxantens (chlorprothixene, flupentixol, zuclopenthixol, zuclopenthixol decanoate, zuclopenthixol acetate), benzamides (sulpiride) and such atypical antipsychotics as risperidone, olanzapine and quentiapine are underused in the treatment. Comparing to usual practice, more patients (35.8%) need antidepressants treatment. Thymoleptics should be assigned in greater daily doses. Selective inhibitors of serotonin reuptake (paroxetine, fluoxetine, citalopram, sertraline), reversible MAO A inhibitors (pyrazidolum), "double-action" drugs (mirtazapine, milnacipran) are recommended for wider usage. Less patients (33.4%) are in need of tranquilizers, though a number of medications used is consistent with a recommended one. Normothymics may be assigned to essentially less part of the patients and 18% of them need nootropics that is consistent with routine practice.

Citalopram (CIT), 1-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-1-(4-fluorophenyl)-5-phthalancarbonitrile, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, is one of the most widely used antidepressants for the treatment of anxiety, obsessional, and control disorders. The degradation of the pharmaceutical CIT hydrogen bromide in buy lexapro water was investigated in the dark and in a growth chamber outfitted with fluorescent lamps simulating the ultraviolet output of sunlight at 25 degrees C. No significant degradation could be detected in dark controls in any aqueous solution investigated over a period of 30 d. Citalopram degraded less than 0.5% at pH 5 and pH 7 during the 30-d exposure period under simulated sunlight. However, at pH 9, CIT moderately degraded, with a half-life of 65 d via a pseudo-first order kinetic model. Degradation was faster in synthetic humic water (half-life, 24 d) and in natural waters (half-lives, 14 and 43 d) than in pH 9 buffer, indicating photosensitization by humic acid or other materials in water. Two photoproducts were detected over the irradiation period, and their structures were identified as N-desmethylcitalopram (DCIT) produced by N-demethylation as a major product and CIT N-oxide by N-oxygenation as a minor product by liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry. The DCIT appeared to be hydrolytically and photolytically stable in aqueous environments. In conclusion, CIT and DCIT were relatively stable in various solutions including natural waters. However, they may dissipate from the aqueous phase to some extent, possibly because of adsorption in real environments where soils and sediments exist.

Between December 2002 Biaxin And Alcohol and March 2005, we recruited 24 subjects aged >or=20 years with DSM-IV kleptomania of >or=1 year's duration. We excluded subjects with organic mental disorders, psychoses, substance or alcohol abuse, suicidal risk, bipolar I or II disorder, anorexia nervosa, or antisocial personality disorder and subjects requiring other psychotropic medications. Our primary outcome measure was theft episodes per week. A responder was defined as a subject having a > 50% decrease in theft episodes per week and a Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement scale score of "much improved" or "very much improved." Escitalopram was started at 10 mg/day and increased as necessary and tolerated after week 4 to 20 mg/day. At the end of week 7, responders were randomly assigned to a 1-week taper followed by 16 weeks of placebo or to continuation of treatment for 17 weeks at their week 7 escitalopram dose.

Escitalopram or citalopram doses nearly saturated SERT in previous monkey studies Levaquin Generic Name which examined serotonin sensitivity of receptor radioligands. PET-measured cross-species differential effects of SSRI on cortical serotonin concentration may thus be related to SSRI dose. Future monkey studies using SSRI doses inducing clinically relevant SERT occupancy may further illuminate the delayed onset of SSRI therapeutic effects.

A 29-year old female with a history of depression was found dead in a hotel room. The death scene investigation found empty pill bottles and an empty liter bottle of wine. Metaxalone, a centrally acting muscle relaxant, along with citalopram, ethanol, and chlorpheniramine were identified in the postmortem samples and quantitated by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The concentration of metaxalone in femoral vein blood was 39 mg/L. The heart blood concentration was 54 mg/L. Femoral vein blood concentrations of citalopram and chlorpheniramine were 0.77 mg/L and 0.04 mg/L, respectively. Ethanol levels were 0.13 g/dL in vitreous and 0.08 g/dL Benicar Equivalent Drug in heart blood. Other tissue samples were also analyzed. The authors consider the metaxalone concentrations toxic and potentially fatal. The citalopram concentrations were lower than those reported in fatal cases for this drug alone. Death was ascribed to polydrug abuse/overdose with metaxalone a major contributor. This represents the first reported case to our knowledge in which a metaxalone overdose significantly contributed to death.

Present pharmacotherapy of major depression is, in principle, based on enhancement of central monoaminergic neurotransmission. Clinical studies utilizing depletion experiments indicate that antidepressants which primarily enhance serotonergic or noradrenergic central activity, i.e. serotonin or nor-adrenaline reuptake inhibitors, largely work by two separate neuronal pathways. Duricef Capsules However, experimental studies have shown that noradrenaline may regulate serotonergic neurotransmission both at the serotonin cell body and nerve-terminal level. We therefore investigated the effects of the selective NRI reboxetine on serotonergic neuronal activity and extracellular levels of transmitter in the nerve-terminal area. In vivo electrophysiological experiments showed that low doses of reboxetine significantly enhance the firing rate of serotonergic neurons in the dorsal raphe nucleus of anaesthetized rats. Also, in the medial prefrontal cortex reboxetine (3 mg/kg s.c.) enhanced, whereas citalopram (3 mg/kg s.c.) reduced, extracellular concentrations of serotonin measured by means of microdialysis in awake rats, using a low dose of citalopram (0,5 micro M) in the perfusion solution. Local administration of reboxetine only induced an increase in cortical serotonin levels at very high concentrations (1000 micro M). Hence, NRIs may cause a secondary enhancement of central serotonergic activity by a mechanism separate from 5-HT reuptake inhibition; an effect that may contribute to their clinical antidepressant efficacy.

Twelve patients, comprising eight females and four males, entered the study. One female patient withdrew during the first week of side effects, eleven patients completed the trial. The patients ranged from 26 to 77 years of age, with the mean age for males and females being 52.3 and 45.1 years, respectively. Five patients were taking sertraline (mean dose = 130 mg/day) and 4 were taking citalopram (mean dose = 50 mg/day), two were on fluvoxamine (150 mg/day) and one patient was on 40 mg of paroxetine. The women took a mean daily dose of 40.6 microg of T3 for a mean duration of 3.75 weeks, while the men were on a mean daily dose of 43.8 mug of T3 for 3.5 weeks. T3 augmentation was associated with a statistically significant drop (p < .003) in the mean HAMD at end of the three weeks compared to baseline scores. Five patients (42%) showed >or=50% improvement on HAMD scores, with three achieving full remission (HAMD scores

On the evidence available to us the manufacturer's claims of superiority for escitalopram over citalopram are unwarranted. The Swedish and Danish drug regulatory authorities reached similar conclusions. This highlights the need for wider dissemination of national authorities' statements to other countries affected by the European Union's mutual recognition procedure.

The TST strain survey described here: (1) suggested the most appropriate strains for screening potential antidepressants, (2) identified parental strains appropriate for quantitative trait loci mapping of genomic loci regulating SSRI sensitivity, and (3) indicated appropriate background strains for measuring an antidepressant-like response to the SSRI citalopram. The pattern of response agrees with a previous mouse strain survey that examined sensitivity to fluoxetine in the forced swim test (Lucki I, Dalvi A, Mayorga AJ (2001) Sensitivity to the effects of pharmacologically selective antidepressants in different strains of mice. Psychopharmacology 155:315-322).

Although serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs) are the medications of choice in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), only 50-60% of patients respond to a single trial of any of these agents. Improved knowledge of the predictors of response to treatment may have important clinical implications. Data from a large randomized placebo-controlled trial of citalopram in OCD was analysed using logistic regression to determine predictors of response. Demographic (age, sex), clinical (OCD severity and duration, depression severity, prior treatment) and trial variables (citalopram dose, treatment duration) were included. Subjects with longer duration of OCD, more severe OCD symptoms or previous selective SRI use were less likely to be responders in the citalopram trial. In contrast, subjects who received adequate medication doses for sufficient periods of time in the citalopram trial were more likely to be responders. Despite greater awareness of OCD in recent years, there is evidence that the disorder continues to be underdiagnosed and undertreated. The data here emphasize the crucial importance of early diagnosis and treatment of OCD, and of pharmacotherapy with appropriate dose and duration.

These results show that despite the high REMS pressure caused by REMS deprivation procedure, escitalopram has the ability to suppress REMS rebound, as well as to diminish the activation of MCH-containing neurons, in parallel. Escitalopram caused a shift from REMS to slow wave sleep during the rebound. Furthermore, these data point to the potential connection between the serotonergic system and MCH in sleep regulation, which can be relevant in depression and in other mood disorders.

In vitro, the novel diazabicyclononane NS 4194 has several thousand-fold selectivity for blocking the transport into rat brain synaptosomes of [(3)H]-serotonin in comparison to [(3)H]-dopamine or [(3)H]-noradrenaline. We have prepared [(11)C]-NS 4194 in order to test its properties for PET imaging of brain serotonin transporters in comparison with the well-documented tracer [(11)C]-DASB. Both compounds had rapid clearance from blood to brain of living pigs. The apparent equilibrium distribution volumes in cerebellum were 35 ml g(-1) for [(11)C]-NS 4194 and 11 ml g(-1) for [(11)C]-DASB. Pretreatment of pigs with citalopram did not reduce the uptake of either tracer in cerebellum, validating the use of that tissue as a nonbinding reference tissue for kinetic analysis of specific binding. The binding potential (pB) calculated for [(11)C]-NS 4194 using arterial input models was close to 0.5 in the telencephalon, and was 60% displaced by citalopram. However, the reference tissue method of Lammertsma was unsuited to calculate pB for this tracer, apparently due to its excessive nonspecific binding. In contrast to the relatively homogeneous binding of [(11)C]-NS 4194, the pB of [(11)C]-DASB ranged from 0.6 in frontal cortex to 2 in the mesencephalon when calculated by the method of Lammertsma. Parametric maps of the pB of [(11)C]-DASB showed a pattern consistent with the known distribution of serotonin transporters in pig brain in vitro, and there was a uniform displacement of 80% of the specific binding after citalopram treatment in vivo. In conclusion, [(11)C]-DASB is in several respects superior to [(11)C]-NS 4194 for the detection of serotonin uptake sites by PET.
