Citalopram (CITA) is available as a racemic mixture or as (+)-(S)-CITA. In humans, CITA is metabolized to demethylcitalopram (DCITA) by CYP2C19, CYP2D6, and CYP3A and to didemethylcitalopram by CYP2D6. There are no data regarding the enzymes involved in CITA and DCITA metabolism in rats. The present study investigated the influence of CYP inhibitors on the enantioselective metabolism of CITA in rats. Male Wistar rats (n = 6) received a single dose of 20 mg x kg-1 CITA after pretreatment with 80 mg x kg-1 quinidine, 10 mg x kg-1 fluvoxamine, 50 mg x kg-1 ketoconazole, or vehicle (control). Blood samples were collected up to 20 h after CITA administration. The CITA and DCITA enantiomers were analyzed by LC-MS/MS using a Chiralcel OD-R column. The kinetic disposition of CITA was enantioselective in rats (AUCS/R ratio = 0.4). Coadministration with quinidine resulted in non-enantioselective inhibition of the metabolism of CITA. Coadministration with fluvoxamine or ketoconazole, however, inhibited only the metabolism of (+)-(S)-CITA, but not of (-)-(R)-CITA when the racemic drug was administered to rats.

The present study was designed to evaluate the roles of 5-HT2 and 5-HT3 receptors in the mouse forced swimming test, by using selective agonists and antagonists of 5-HT(2A/C) and 5-HT3 receptor sites. Agonists/antagonists and antidepressants were administered 45 min and 30 min, respectively, prior to testing. Pretreatment with (+/-)-2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodoamphetamine (DOI) (4 mg/kg, i.p.) or 2-methyl-5-HT (4 mg/kg, i.p.) had no effect on the anti-immobility effects of any antidepressant tested. Prior administration of ritanserin (4 mg/kg, i.p.) or ketanserin (8 mg/kg, i.p.), on the other hand, potentiated the effects of sub-active doses of imipramine (8 mg/kg, i.p.) and desipramine (16 mg/kg, i.p.) but not of maprotiline (8 mg/kg, i.p.), fluoxetine (16 mg/kg, i.p.), citalopram (16 mg/kg, i.p.) or fluvoxamine (8 mg/kg, i.p.). Pretreatment with ondansetron (1 X 10(-5) mg/kg, i.p.) enhanced the antidepressant-like effects of sub-active doses of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. The results of the present study suggested that, in the forced swimming test, the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors act partially through 5-HT3 receptor sites, whereas the tricyclic antidepressants exert effects at 5-HT(2A/C) receptor sites. Anti-immobility effects of the selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor, maprotiline, do not seem to be mediated by 5-HT(2A/C) or 5-HT3 receptor function.

According to previous data, the addition of risperidone in obsessive-compulsive patients refractory to serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs) is shown to be a safe and effective treatment strategy. The aims of our study were to evaluate the efficacy of risperidone addition, in comparison to placebo, in fluvoxamine-refractory obsessive-compulsive patients and to investigate whether risperidone could boost the efficacy of fluvoxamine in fluvoxamine-responder patients. Subjects were 45 obsessive-compulsive inpatients, consecutively recruited at the Department of Neurosciences at the San Raffaele Hospital, Milan. Thirty-nine patients completed the study. All patients received 12 weeks of a standardized open-label fluvoxamine monotherapy and then continued for 6 weeks with placebo or risperidone in a double-blind design. Results showed a significant effect of risperidone addition, at the end of the double-blind phase (18th week), only for fluvoxamine-refractory patients. Five patients on risperidone (50%) and two (20%) on placebo became responders, with a Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS) decrease > or =35%. Risperidone was generally well tolerated, except for a mild transient sedation and a mild increase in appetite. This preliminary study suggests that even very low (0.5 mg) risperidone doses are effective in OC patients who were nonresponders to a standardized treatment with fluvoxamine.

The interactions between warfarin and antidepressants can have potentially serious consequences resulting from enhanced or reduced anticoagulant activity. Information about such interactions was obtained from a Medline and hand search of the published literature, and by directly contacting manufacturers. The different classes of antidepressants are discussed in turn. The possible mechanisms are considered with particular reference to the cytochrome p450 system. From currently available data on the newer antidepressants our conclusions are that citalopram, nefazodone and sertraline may be relatively less likely to interact with warfarin. Fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, paroxetine and moclobemide appear to have the highest potential of the antidepressants for interactions. There is insufficient data on venlafaxine to make a prediction. The clinical implications of these findings are discussed and specific recommendations for International Normalized Ratio monitoring are suggested.

Pro-arrhythmia by noncardiac drugs has become an important safety concern in the pharmaceutical industry. The most common underlying mechanism for induction of arrhythmias by noncardiac drugs is off-target block of the native cardiac repolarizing current, I Kr. The pore-forming subunit of I Kr is encoded by the human ether-a-go-go related gene (hERG), and in vitro measurements of hERG activity has become a standard component of drug safety evaluations. hERG/I Kr channels are blocked by a wide array of different chemical series; therefore, patients could be exposed to multiple blockers. There are few published studies addressing whether multiple blockers will exert independent actions on hERG channels. Whole cell patch clamp was used to evaluate the potential for cooperative effects when 2 hERG blocking agents were applied simultaneously. Cisapride, quinidine, fluvoxamine, and BeKm-1 were selected as representative agents binding to: (1) hydrophobic residues in the inner vestibule (cisapride and quinidine, the most frequent sites of interaction), (2) an extracellular segment near the pore (BeKm-1) or, (3) an unknown site (fluvoxamine). No synergistic blocking actions were seen. In some cases block was slightly less than additive. On balance, the results are consistent with additive and independent actions with simultaneous application of 2 hERG blockers.

Tricyclic antidepressants possess established antienuretic properties. The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) have similar antidepressant properties to the tricyclic antidepressants and a safer side effect profile. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antienuretic efficacy of one SSRI, fluvoxamine. Nine children aged 9 to 14 years with primary enuresis which was resistant to behavioral therapy participated in the study. All received fluvoxamine, 75-100 mg per day. In four, the enuresis was the only focus of clinical attention, and five received fluvoxamine for other primary indications. Enuresis was monitored daily, and mean voiding frequency was compared between three phases: baseline, on treatment and off treatment. Fluvoxamine had no statistically significant effect on enuresis. Fluvoxamine does not seem to possess significant antienuretic properties. We suggest that the combination of serotonergic with anticholinergic activity is a major factor in the antienuretic activity. In the treatment of children or adolescents with obsessive-compulsive disorder and comorbid enuresis, clomipramine may be preferred over SSRIs. Copyright 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

The author explains the development of specific inhibitors of serotonin re-uptake. Fluvoxamine differs from classical tricyclic antidepressants by a pharmacological profile of side-effects and safety of overdosage, while the therapeutic effect is comparable. The serotonin selectivity opens perspectives of further indications.

The antiepileptic agent topiramate has proved its efficacy in a variety of other conditions as well, including several kinds of tremor and migraine prophylaxis. We report on the case of a 42-year-old depressive female patient with comorbid migraine attacks, whereby the adjunction of topiramate as an antimigraine agent at the dosage of 50 mg/d to her antidepressive treatment with fluvoxamine at 300 mg/d triggered--the prima facie paradoxical for topiramate--side effects of tremor and myoclonus. Topiramate was immediately discontinued, and patient's abnormal movements subsided completely within 24 to 72 hours. Topiramate was possibly the cause of patient's abnormal movements enhanced by fluvoxamine's potential to induce also tremor and myoclonus. Therefore, clinicians should be aware of the potentially severe adverse reactions that might occur during concomitant treatment with fluvoxamine and topiramate.

The functional roles of monaminergic transmitters in depression have been widely studied during the past decade. Data from that research suggest that lower levels of the 5-HT metabolite, 5-HIAA, in the cerebrospinal fluid; 5-HT uptake in human platelets; and platelets [3H]-imipramine binding sites occur in depressed patients. In recent years several potent and selective 5-HT uptake inhibitors have become available for clinical studies. The first shown to have antidepressant effects, zimelidine, was followed by similar compounds such as femoxetine, fluvoxamine, citalopram, indalpine, fluoxetine, paroxetine, and sertraline. The effectiveness of serotonin inhibitors in treating other disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and panic disorder, has also been demonstrated. This review reports the data from clinical studies with these agents. The 5-HT uptake inhibitors are devoid of anticholinergic properties and have not produced weight gain or sedative side-effects, but may have another profile of side-effects. Headache, nausea, and vomiting have been reported, however.

Fluvoxamine-perpetrated drug-drug interactions (DDIs) of victims metabolized by multiple cytochrome P450 isoforms (CYP1A2, CYP2C19, and CYP3A4) were simulated using 2 compartment-based tube modeling, assuming a multiple inhibition-constant (Ki) model, as well as a previously reported single Ki model. Good fittings were obtained for all DDIs using consistent perpetrator-specific CYP isoform Kis and fractional CYP isoform contributions to victim clearance in concordance with literature information. Through these simulations, the following rules to predict DDI were derived. Overall enzymatic inhibitory activity calculated from static DDI data determines entirely dynamic DDIs. DDI-relevant time-dependent hepatic blood unbound perpetrator levels can be approximated to mean hepatic blood unbound perpetrator levels in any victim DDIs when a perpetrator is supplied consistently. Static and dynamic multiple CYP model-based simulations agree with one another. Fluvoxamine-perpetrated DDIs can be bridged to other perpetrator DDIs. The derived rules will allow simpler prediction of DDIs from in vivo DDI databases. Tens or hundreds of Ki gaps between in vitro and in vivo data could be reduced to within severalfold using the liver-microsome contamination model, thus suggesting that microsomes qualified with contamination would greatly improve prediction of DDIs from in vitro data.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are widely used as a first-line therapy in postpartum depression. The objective of this study was to determine the mechanism underlying the inhibitory effects of the SSRI, fluvoxamine, on β-casein expression, an indicator of lactation, in MCF-12A human mammary epithelial cells. Expression levels of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) transporter, an SSRI target protein, and tryptophan hydroxylase 1, a rate-limiting enzyme in 5-HT biosynthesis, were increased in MCF-12A cells by prolactin treatment. Treatment with 1 μM fluvoxamine for 72 h significantly decreased protein levels of β-casein and phosphorylated signal transducer and activator transcription 5 (pSTAT5). Extracellular 5-HT levels were significantly increased after exposure to 1 μM fluvoxamine, in comparison with those of untreated and vehicle-treated cells; however, extracellular 5-HT had little effect on the decrease in β-casein expression. Expression of glucose-related protein 78/binding immunoglobulin protein, a regulator of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, was significantly increased after treatment with 1 μM fluvoxamine for 48 h. Exposure to tunicamycin, an inducer of ER stress, also decreased expression of β-casein and pSTAT5 in a manner similar to fluvoxamine. Our results indicate that fluvoxamine suppresses β-casein expression in MCF-12A cells via inhibition of STAT5 phosphorylation caused by induction of ER stress. Further studies are required to confirm the effect of fluvoxamine on the function of mammary epithelial cells.

Reboxetine is a potent, selective, and specific norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (selective NRI) as determined by both in vitro and in vivo measurements. Unlike desipramine or imipramine, reboxetine has weak affinity (Ki > 1,000 nmol/L)for muscarinic, histaminergic H1, adrenergic alpha1, and dopaminergic D2 receptors. In vivo action of reboxetine is entirely consistent with the pharmacological action of an antidepressant with preferential action at the norepinephrine reuptake site. Reboxetine showed an antidepressant profile in all tests of antidepressant activity used. Significant decreases in immobility were observed in the tail suspension test and behavioral despair test. Increased efficiency in responding was observed in the DRL72 test.

Cognitive impairment is a primary feature of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and is characterised by stress-induced neural atrophy. Via alpha-adrenergic, anti-cholinergic and anti-histaminic activities, several antidepressants can cause significant counter-therapeutic cognitive impairment. Evidence is emerging of the involvement of sigma-1 receptor agonism in the mechanism of action of some antidepressants, notably fluvoxamine. Sigma-1 receptors are abundant in areas affected by depression/stress-induced cerebral atrophy and their ligands have a unique pharmacological profile; they may promote neurogenesis and initiate adaptive neural plasticity as a protection/reaction to stress. Fluvoxamine, as a potent sigma-1 receptor agonist, has shown ameliorating effects in animal models of psychosis, depression, stress, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and aggression and has been shown to improve cognitive impairments. In humans, fluvoxamine may repair central nervous system (CNS) atrophy and restore cognitive function. The current review explores the mechanisms through which sigma-1 receptors can modulate cognitive function and examines how antidepressant therapy with fluvoxamine may help improve cognitive outcomes in patients with depression.

Primary outcome criteria were the number of responders and the time to onset of action. Responder rates were considered twice after 3 and 5 weeks with a definition of treatment response as 30% and 50% reduction, respectively, of baseline Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression scores. Onset of action was defined as the time point at which at least a 20% reduction of baseline Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression scores occurred.

One hundred and fifty outpatients with an MDD diagnosis, treated with antidepressants in mono-therapy, were included. Follow-up period was set at 24 months, and information have been obtained from charts, interviews with patients and their relatives, and from the Lombardy regional register. A survival analysis (Kaplan-Meier) was performed, considering recurrences, hospitalizations, or discontinuation due to side effects as 'death' events.

ACh-induced contraction was antagonized competitively within clinical dose ranges by tricyclic antidepressants (imipramine, amitriptyline, trimipramine, clomipramine, nortriptyline, and amoxapine), maprotiline (a tetracyclic antidepressant), and mirtazapine (a noradrenergic and specific serotonergic antidepressant). ACh-induced contraction was also significantly inhibited by mianserin (a tetracyclic antidepressant), paroxetine and sertraline (serotonin-selective reuptake inhibitors, SSRIs), and duloxetine (a serotonin noradrenaline (norepinephrine) reuptake inhibitor, SNRI), albeit at concentrations that substantially exceeded clinically achievable blood levels. However, ACh-induced contractions were not significantly affected by fluvoxamine and escitalopram (SSRIs), milnacipran (an SNRI), trazodone (a serotonin 5-HT2A receptor antagonist), sulpiride (a dopamine D2 receptor antagonist), or aripiprazole (a dopamine partial agonist).

The response of patients to drugs can be affected by genetic polymorphisms/defects in drug metabolizing enzymes, transporters, and receptors. Genetic polymorphisms/defects are generated by mutation of coding regions and/or noncoding regions of target genes, such as single-point mutations, deletions/insertions, variation in the number of tandem repeats, etc. If a genetic defect in a patient which affects drug response were known, it would be possible to optimize medications individually. The author developed two improved methods for detecting CYP2C19(*)2 and CYP2C19(*)3. Using the methods, the type of CYP2C19 gene was examined in 80 inpatients, and the medication status of patients with the mutation was examined focusing on dosage and side effects. The author also examined polymorphisms of the serotonin transporter/biosynthetic or metabolizing enzymes in depressive patients treated with fluvoxamine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, and the relationship between clinical efficacy and polymorphisms was investigated. As a result, patients with the S/S genotype of 5-HTTLPR were found to experience better clinical efficacy.

A range of interventions is effective in the management of obsessive-compulsive disorder, but considerable uncertainty and limitations exist regarding their relative efficacy. Taking all the evidence into account, the combination of psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological interventions is likely to be more effective than are psychotherapeutic interventions alone, at least in severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Fluvoxamine proved relatively safe and was especially effective in the patients with OCD; mean Y-BOCS scores decreased significantly (p < .0001) from 28.0 to 19.8 on medication. Although fluvoxamine also appeared effective in decreasing depression and bulimic symptoms, its impact on impulsive, suicidal, and anorectic symptoms was less clear. The commonest side effects (n > or = 3) were dermatitis, insomnia, hyperactivity, excitement, anxiety, tremor, and nausea. Fluvoxamine was discontinued in four patients because of side effects; the most serious side effect occurred in two debilitated anorexic patients, of whom one became delirious and the other developed hallucinations.

Fast cyclic voltammetry using carbon fibre microelectrodes in rat brain slices, was used to investigate regional differences in electrically-evoked dopamine (DA) efflux at 10 different sites in the anterior caudate putamen (aCPu) and 10 sites in the posterior caudate putamen (pCPu). For each site DA overflow was evoked by both single pulse (1P) stimulation and by trains of 25 pulses applied at a frequency of 50 Hz (25P/50 Hz). Peak DA efflux evoked by 1P was about 58% greater in the aCPu (0.19 mumol/l DA) than in the pCPu (0.12 mumol/l DA), but showed no mediolateral variation in either region. Peak DA efflux evoked by 25P/50 Hz relative to 1P efflux also varied between the two regions; the aCPu contained predominantly low ratio (25P/50 Hz: 1P) sites ranging from 1.47 to 3.71, whereas in the pCPu these ratios were higher, ranging from 2.73 to 9.40, and were particularly high in the dorsomedial region of the pCPu. Efflux detected in low ratio sites of the aCPu showed little dependence on the frequency (10 to 500 Hz), or the number of pulses (5 to 20) in a train. By contrast DA efflux evoked in high ratio sites of the pCPu responded in a pulse and frequency dependent manner, the maximum ratio (approximately 8 times 1P) being at 20P/20 Hz. Interestingly the frequency response relationship obtained in the pCPu resembled the profile observed in the nucleus accumbens (NAc). Voltammetric evidence and experiments with selective reuptake blockers indicated that only DA was measured in our studies and 5-HT did not significantly contribute to the frequency dependent pattern of efflux detected in high ratio sites of the pCPu, where striatal 5-HT concentrations are highest. Experiments with the selective D2 receptor antagonists metoclopramide or (-)sulpiride revealed that under our experimental conditions, DA efflux in the aCPu was not modulated by DA autoreceptor activation. By contrast, autoreceptor modulation did occur in high ratio sites of the pCPu at stimulations lasting longer than approximately 1000 ms. These observations support the concept that the caudate putamen is heterogeneously organised with respect to the frequency characteristics of evoked DA release. The factors controlling frequency dependent release under these conditions may be a function of A10 innervation, since high ratio release sites occur in areas where the density of such innervation is greatest, for example, the dorsomedial pCPu. This is supported by the observation that high ratio release sites are also found in the NAc, which receives dopaminergic fibres predominantly from an A10 region.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

The examined patients (24 persons aged 18-65 years) treated with anti-depressants accessible in Poland were randomly divided into 2 groups. In 1 group (11 persons--9 women and 2 men) magnetostimulation with the use of a weak variable magnetic field with a low value of induction of 15 microT generated by the VIOFOR JPS device (Poland) lasting 12 minutes daily for 15 days was added to pharmacological therapy. Patients from 2 groups (13 persons--11 women and 2 men) were exposed to exposure with the same device. The intensity of depression was estimated with Beck's, Montgomery-Asberg's and Hamilton's scales.

Obesity is a chronic and highly prevalent medical condition associated with increased risk for the development of numerous and sometimes fatal diseases. Despite its severity, there are few anti-obesity agents available on the market. Although psychotropic agents are not approved for the treatment of obesity, they have been used by clinicians as a therapeutic tool in daily clinical practice. The purpose of this article is to review the rationale, as well as the evidence, for the potential use of these agents in obesity treatment. Evidence for the efficacy of psychotropic agents in obesity treatment comes from different sources. The first type of evidence is weight loss observed with treatment in clinical trials of patients with neuropsychiatric syndromes (e.g. mood disorders, epilepsy). A recent example of such findings is the weight reduction reported in clinical trials involving obese patients with binge eating disorder. While randomised, controlled trials specifically designed to investigate the weight loss properties of psychotropic agents in obese patients are the most appropriate source of evidence of anti-obesity action, such trials remain scarce. The most studied psychotropic agents in obesity trials are drugs used in the treatment of mood disorders, i.e. mainly antidepressants and antiepileptics. SSRIs (e.g. fluoxetine, sertraline and fluvoxamine) were amongst the first psychotropic agents investigated in the treatment of obesity. Additional data have also been published for other antidepressants (e.g. venlafaxine, citalopram and bupropion) and antiepileptics (e.g. topiramate and zonisamide). Based on the available data for the efficacy of psychotropic agents in obesity and other related conditions, SSRIs may be considered for the management of certain subgroups of obese individuals with comorbid conditions such as depression, binge eating disorder and type 2 diabetes mellitus. In addition, some newer agents, such as bupropion, topiramate and zonisamide, appear to be promising candidates for selective use in the treatment of obesity. However, further studies are needed to define their possible role as new pharmacological options in the treatment of obesity.

Fluoxetine (Prozac) and fluvoxamine (Fevarin) are nontricyclic serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) reuptake inhibitors prescribed for the treatment of depression. Since these drugs block serotonin reuptake in platelets also, they might under certain conditions lead to clinically significant platelet dysfunction. Four patients are described who developed bleeding during treatment with either fluoxetine or fluvoxamine.

OCD is an anxiety disorder that was once viewed as rare and very difficult to treat. Although the first evidence that a serotonergic drug, clomipramine, might be effective in treating symptoms of OCD was published by Fernandez-Cordoba and Lopez-Ibor Alino in 1967, controlled trials demonstrating the efficacy of pharmacologic treatments in OCD did not appear until the 1980s. The availability of potentially effective treatments, combined with the awareness of prevalence rates for the disorder that are higher than previously believed, led to considerable interest in OCD. Numerous studies have been undertaken to investigate the biology of OCD. The observation that drugs that act by inhibiting serotonin uptake, such as clomipramine, fluvoxamine, sertraline, and fluoxetine, are effective in treating symptoms of OCD has resulted in intense interest in the relationship between serotonin and this disorder. Several lines of investigation support a serotonergic hypothesis for the pathophysiology and treatment of this disorder. Clomipramine, a tricyclic antidepressant that is a potent serotonin uptake inhibitor, was the first pharmacologic treatment for OCD to be studied in large multicenter trials. The successful outcome of these studies resulted in marketing approval by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 1989. Subsequently, similar multicenter trials have been undertaken with the selective serotonin uptake inhibitors fluvoxamine, sertraline, and fluoxetine. Results from these multicenter trials indicate that all these drugs are more effective than placebo in treating OCD. However, meta-analytic techniques applied to the data from controlled trials of these drugs suggest that the effect size for clomipramine is somewhat larger than that of the selective serotonin uptake inhibitors. A number of other drugs that affect serotonin through mechanisms other than uptake inhibition have been tried as treatments for OCD. Because of the small size of many of these studies, it is difficult to evaluate them in the context of the multicenter trials that studied hundreds of patients. Nevertheless, there may be a role for other serotonergic drugs in the treatment of OCD, particularly as adjunctive treatments used to enhance the effect of the serotonin uptake inhibitors. The data supporting the use of adjunctive treatment are limited and cannot be considered to demonstrate definitively the value of augmentation strategies with adjunctive treatment. Nevertheless, the serotonin uptake inhibitors, although effective in a large number of patients, do not appear to provide adequate symptom relief for some patients. Furthermore, among the patients who do respond to serotonin uptake inhibitors, complete remission in uncommon, which leaves a buy luvox need for improvement of therapies.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

We determined an optimal electrolyte system for isotachophoresis (ITP) with conductivity detection of citalopram, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine and sertraline. The analysis conditions were applied to the determination of these selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors in antidepressant drugs. It is shown that capillary ITP with conductivity detection is a simple and quick method for the determination of buy luvox citalopram, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine and sertraline in drugs.

This article provides an overview of psychopharmacological treatments for repetitive behaviors in autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in the context of current conceptualizations of this understudied core symptom domain. The available literature on the widely used selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), including fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, citalopram, escitalopram, and sertraline, are reviewed. In addition to SSRIs, research on effects of other pharmacologic interventions such as buy luvox divalproex sodium, risperidone, and the neuropeptide oxytocin are presented. To date, data are mixed for interventions commonly prescribed in clinical practice and suggest several areas of investigation in advancing research on the medication management of repetitive behaviors.

We reported upregulation of the 5-hydroxytryptamine (HT) transporter (5-HTT) protein in peripheral arteries from deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertensive rats. We hypothesized that upregulated 5-HTT may be generally elevated in hypertensive models and, as a consequence, a higher basal concentration of 5-HT, the 5-HT metabolite 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid, and an increased 5-HT uptake would occur in peripheral arteries of hypertensive rats compared with normotensive rats. We examined 3 hypertension models: DOCA-salt rats, Nomega-nitro-L-arginine (LNNA) rats, and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) in our study (systolic blood pressure [mm Hg]: DOCA (D)=197+/-6, SHAM(D)=112+/-4, LNNA (L)=228+/-9, SHAM(L)=128+/-2, SHR=172+/-7, and Wistar-Kyoto [WKY]= 121+/-3). High-pressure liquid chromatography measurements showed lower basal 5-HT concentrations in aorta from DOCA-salt and LNNA rats compared with their SHAM rats but not in SHR compared with WKY. In all of the 5-HT-uptake studies, we used arteries isolated from rats treated with the monoamine oxidase-A inhibitor pargyline to minimize 5-HT metabolism. Exogenous 5-HT was taken up by aorta, and this was inhibited by the 5-HTT inhibitor fluoxetine (1 micromol/L) or fluvoxamine (1 buy luvox micromol/L). Total 5-HT uptake and 5-HTT-dependent active 5-HT uptake were decreased in aorta from DOCA-salt and LNNA rats compared with SHAM rats, but this was not observed in SHRs compared with WKYs. Western analysis revealed similar expression of 5-HTT in aorta from WKYs and SHRs as opposed to an upregulated 5-HTT in aorta from DOCA-salt and LNNA-hypertensive rats. Our study suggested that an altered serotonergic system by impaired 5-HTT function might play a role in blood pressure regulation in DOCA-salt and LNNA-hypertensive rats.

Brain serotonin plays a crucial role in the regulation of food intake and body weight homeostasis. Previous data suggest an interaction with corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). To further examine the interaction between these neurotransmitters, the selective serotonin reuptake-inhibitor (SSRI) fluvoxamine was given intraperitoneally in fa/fa Zucker rats with and without the CRH-receptor-antagonist alpha-helical CRH administered intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v.). The saline treated animals gained weight. Fluvoxamine led to a significant weight loss while not affecting food intake. Furthermore, insulin levels in this animal model were reduced following fluvoxamine administration. These effects were antagonized by alpha-helical CRH and are thus most likely mediated via CRH buy luvox or CRH-like peptides.

It is known that the somatodendritic 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)1A autoreceptor works to regulate the action of 5-HT neurons leading to the release of 5-HT. Our present study has addressed the possibility that (+/-)-pindolol, which is a non-selective beta-adrenoceptor antagonist/somatodendritic 5-HT1A autoreceptor antagonist, might have the ability to enhance the level of extracellular buy luvox 5-HT when used with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI; i.e., fluvoxamine). We have used freely moving rats to measure the extracellular level of 5-HT and dopamine (DA) in the raphe, dorsal hippocampus and prefrontal cortex using an in vivo microdialysis technique. Response power of (+/-)-pindolol (8 mg/kg, i.p.) to the rise in extracellular 5-HT level when used with fluvoxamine (60 mg/kg, i.p.) was significant in the raphe, dorsal hippocampus and prefrontal cortex, while the degree of augmentation was more significant in the prefrontal cortex than in the dorsal hippocampus. The extracellular level of DA when used with (+/-)-pindolol showed a tendency to decrease in the raphe while showing a tendency to increase in the dorsal hippocampus. However, no change occurred in the prefrontal cortex. This indicates that (+/-)-pindolol has the ability to block the somatodendritic 5-HT1A autoreceptors, thereby weakening the fluvoxamine-induced indirect action of the autoreceptors in the raphe. We have obtained positive result for the probability of pindolol augmentation in two regions--dorsal hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. This indicates that augmentation therapy by the combined use of fluvoxamine with 5-HT1A antagonist will be valid and effective.

Neuronal dynamin I plays a critical role in the recycling of synaptic vesicles, and thus in nervous system function. We expressed and purified dynamin I to explore potentially clinically useful endocytosis inhibitors and to examine the mechanism of their action. We estimated the IC(50) of nineteen psychotropic drugs for dynamin I. The IC(50) values of two selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (sertraline and fluvoxamine) were 7.3+/-1.0 and 14.7+/-1.6 microM, respectively. Kinetic analyses revealed that fluvoxamine is a noncompetitive inhibitor of dynamin I guanosine triphosphatase (GTPase) with respect to guanosine 5'-triphosphate (GTP) and a competitive inhibitor with respect to L-phosphatidylserine (PS). Fluvoxamine may compete with PS for binding to the pleckstrin homology domain of dynamin I. On the other hand, sertraline was a mixed type inhibitor with respect to both GTP and PS. Our results indicate that sertraline and fluvoxamine may regulate the transportation of neurotransmitters by modulating synaptic buy luvox vesicle endocytosis via the inhibition of dynamin I GTPase.

The authors present data from an open trial of fluvoxamine (median daily dosage: 200 mg) in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and buy luvox obsessive-compulsive disorder in 19 older outpatients (mean age = 66.8). Of the 12 subjects completing the 21-week trial, 8 achieved a good response (50% reduction in symptom measures) and 7 were rated as much or very much improved. Fluvoxamine pharmacotherapy also had a significant effect in reducing comorbid depressive symptoms and in increasing levels of functioning. These data support the effectiveness of fluvoxamine in older subjects with anxiety disorders (particularly generalized anxiety disorder) and warrant further double-blind, placebo-controlled evaluation.

The present study evaluated high-speed chronoamperometry as a method for measuring the clearance of serotonin (5-HT) from extracellular space in vivo. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were anaesthetized and a Nafion-coated, carbon fiber electrode, attached to a multibarrel pipette, was lowered into the subgranular layer of the dentate gyrus, a region which receives dense serotonergic innervation, or the corpus callosum, a fiber tract relatively devoid of the 5-HT transporter (SERT). Serotonin, pressure ejected into these regions, produced replicable electrochemical signals. The amplitude and time course of the signals were significantly prolonged in the corpus callosum compared to the dentate gyrus. Similarly, signals produced by locally applied 5-HT in the dentate gyrus of rats following destruction of hippocampal serotonergic innervation with 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine (5,7-DHT), were significantly enhanced compared to those observed in control animals. The time course of the 5-HT signal was significantly prolonged by local application of the selective 5-HT reuptake inhibitor, fluvoxamine, into the dentate gyrus. By contrast, fluvoxamine did not modify the clearance of 5-HT when locally applied into the dentate gyrus of 5,7-DHT lesioned rats or into the corpus callosum of intact rats. Taken together, these data demonstrate that in intact rats, the SERT contributes to the clearance of exogenously applied 5-HT from the extracellular space. Under the experimental conditions used in this study, high-speed chronoamperometry proved to be a reliable method for directly measuring extracellular 5-HT and appears to be a valuable tool buy luvox for the study of 5-HT clearance by the SERT in vivo.

The objective of this study was to investigate pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions between midazolam and fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, nefazodone, and ketoconazole. Forty healthy subjects were randomized to receive one of the four study drugs for 12 days in a parallel study design: fluoxetine 60 mg per day for 5 days, followed by 20 mg per day for 7 days; fluvoxamine titrated to a daily dose of 200 mg; nefazodone titrated to a daily dose of 400 mg; or ketoconazole 200 mg per day. All 40 subjects received oral midazolam solution before and after the 12-day study drug regimen. Blood samples for determination of midazolam concentrations were drawn for 24 hours after each midazolam dose and used for the calculation of pharmacokinetic parameters. The effects of the study drugs on midazolam pharmacodynamics were assessed using the symbol digit modalities test (SDMT). The mean area under the curve (AUC) for midazolam was increased 771.9% by ketoconazole and 444.0% by nefazodone administration. However, there was no significant change in midazolam AUC as a result of fluoxetine (13.4% decrease) and a statistical trend for fluvoxamine (66.1% increase) administration. Pharmacodynamic data are consistent buy luvox with pharmacokinetic data indicating that nefazodone and ketoconazole resulted in significant increases in midazolam-related cognition impairment. The significant impairment in subjects' cognitive function reflects the changes in midazolam clearance after treatment with ketoconazole and nefazodone. These results suggest that caution with the use of midazolam is warranted with potent CYP3A4 inhibitors.

Current neurobiological concepts attribute a central role of the hippocampal formation in cognitive and affective processes. Recent studies indicate that the hippocampus is affected in human depression, and antidepressant drugs induce hippocampal adaptive changes that are thought to be associated with their therapeutic action. In the present study, we investigated the action of various antidepressant drugs on the activity of the septo-hippocampal system, its oscillatory activity in particular. The acute effects of the norepinephrine (NE) reuptake inhibitors reboxetine and desipramine, and the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluvoxamine were evaluated. Extracellular single-unit recordings were performed from the medial septum/diagonal band of Broca (MS/DBv), with simultaneous hippocampal EEG recordings of anesthetized rats. Systemic administration of reboxetine synchronized hippocampal EEG, resulting in a significant increase in power at theta frequency, and an increase in frequency and power of gamma-wave activity. Parallel to EEG synchrony, reboxetine induced or enhanced theta oscillation of MS/DBv neurons. Oscillatory frequencies of MS/DBv neurons were identical, and phase locked to the corresponding hippocamapal theta frequencies. Under the same experimental conditions, reboxetine induced a two-fold increase in extracellular NE (but not serotonin) levels in the hippocampus as revealed by microdialysis. Desipramine, but not the serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluvoxamine, evoked responses similar to those Prevacid Child Dosage of reboxetine regarding septo-hippocampal theta activity. The present findings indicate that even though both NE and serotonin reuptake inhibitors are clinically effective antidepressant drugs, their action on the septo-hippocampal oscillatory behavior is different. It is presumed that selective NE reuptake inhibitors could modulate various cognitive processes associated with hippocampal oscillatory activity.

1 Two double-blind, randomised studies were performed to compare the efficacy of fluvoxamine and chlorimipramine in depressed patients. In the first study the effects of a single daily dosage of between 100 and 300 mg of fluvoxamine were compared with those of chlorimipramine at a dosage of 50-150 mg daily in 43 out-patients with endogenous depression. 2 In a second study using three times daily dosing with a daily dosage of 150-300 mg for both fluvoxamine and chlorimipramine, 30 in-patients with unipolar depression were assessed. 3 Four weeks of treatment with single daily dosing resulted in a mean improvement of 61.4% (+/- s.d. 31.7) on the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAMD) for fluvoxamine and of 65.3% (+/- s.d. 25.8) for chlorimipramine. In the study with three times daily dosing the mean results were 72.9% (+/- s.d. 22.3) improvement for fluvoxamine and 62.1% (+/- s.d. 28.5) for chlorimipramine. 4 At similar dosages, fluvoxamine had significantly less untoward effects on blood pressure than chlorimipramine. Anticholinergic effects were also fewer in the fluvoxamine group, as were nervous system symptoms, with the latter difference reaching statistical significance (P = 0.02). 5 We conclude that fluvoxamine, given in a single daily dose of 150-250 mg, provides antidepressant efficacy similar to chlorimipramine. At this dosage it Diovan 25 Mg may be expected to produce less anticholinergic effects and have less influence on blood pressure than chlorimipramine.

Animal studies have shown that alcohol consumption is reduced when serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) levels are increased in the central nervous system. Similarly, studies of alcohol-dependent human subjects have shown that treatment with 5-HT reuptake inhibitors (i.e. zimeldine, citalopram, fluoxetine, and fluvoxamine) decreases the desire to drink alcohol and improves symptoms of alcohol-related anxiety and depression in patients who have undergone detoxification. However, not all studies have shown them to be an effective treatment to help maintain recovery in alcohol dependence. The exact mechanisms of action of the 5-HT reuptake Zantac Dosage Infant inhibitors are not yet fully understood and additional studies are needed. However, at this time, the 5-HT reuptake inhibitors may be effective pharmacotherapies for alcohol-related depression.

Elevating serotonin (5-HT) levels with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) is the most widely used treatment for depression. However, current therapies are ineffective, have delayed benefit, or cause side effects in many patients. Here, we define a mechanism downstream of 5-HT1A receptors that mediates antidepressant-like behavior and is profoundly and selectively enhanced by genetic disruption of regulators of G protein signaling (RGS) activity at G(alpha)i2. Animals rendered insensitive to RGS protein regulation through a mutation in G(alpha)i2 (G184S) exhibited spontaneous antidepressant- and anxiolytic-like behaviors. Mice expressing RGS-insensitive G(alpha)i2 also exhibited increased cortical and hippocampal phosphorylation of glycogen synthase kinase-3beta, a constitutively active proapoptotic kinase that is inhibited through phosphorylation in response to serotonin, SSRIs, and 5-HT1 receptor agonists. Both behavioral and biochemical phenotypes were blocked by treatment with WAY 100635, a 5-HT1A-selective antagonist. RGS-insensitive mice were also 5-10 times more responsive to the antidepressant-like effects of the SSRI fluvoxamine and 5-HT1A-selective agonist 8-hydroxy-2-dipropylaminotetralin. In contrast, the antidepressant potency of agents acting through nonserotonergic mechanisms was unchanged as was 5-HT1A action on body temperature. The findings point to a critical role for endogenous RGS proteins to suppress the antidepressant-like effects of 5-HT1A receptor activation. By selectively enhancing the beneficial effects of serotonin, inhibition of Geodon Dose Im RGS proteins represents a therapeutic approach for the treatment of mood disorders.
