Upper gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms such as nausea and vomiting are common adverse events associated with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and may result in discontinuation of drug therapy in patients with depressive disorder. Rikkunshi-to (formulation TJ-43), a traditional herbal medicine, has been reported to improve upper GI symptoms and comorbid depressive symptoms in patients with functional dyspepsia. The aim of the present study was to determine if TJ-43 reduces GI symptoms and potentiates an antidepressant effect in a randomized controlled study of depressed patients treated with fluvoxamine (FLV).

This paper reviews the use of medication in the treatment of bulimia nervosa and of binge eating disorder. There is now compelling evidence from double blind, placebo-controlled studies that antidepressant medication is useful in the treatment of bulimia nervosa. What is less clear is which patients are most likely to benefit from antidepressant medications and how to best sequence the various therapeutic interventions available. The utility of antidepressant medications in bulimia nervosa has led to their evaluation in binge eating disorder. The limited information currently available suggests that antidepressant treatment may be associated with a reduction in binge frequency in obese patients with binge eating disorder, but does not lead to weight reduction. Additional studies of the use of medication in the treatment of binge eating disorder and of the role of pharmacotherapy in the treatment of bulimia nervosa are needed.

The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of antidepressants (ADs) belonging to different pharmacological groups and risperidone (an atypical antipsychotic drug), given separately or jointly, on immobility time in the forced swimming test in male C57BL/6J mice. The antidepressants: citalopram, fluvoxamine, sertraline, reboxetine, milnacipran (5 and 10 mg/kg), or risperidone in low doses (0.05 and 0.1 mg/kg) given alone did not change the immobility time of mice in the forced swimming test. Co-treatment with reboxetine or milnacipran (10 mg/kg) and risperidone in a lower dose of 0.05 mg/kg or with sertraline, reboxetine (5 and 10 mg/kg), citalopram, fluvoxamine, milnacipran (10 mg/kg) and risperidone in a higher dose of 0.1 mg/kg produced antidepressant-like effect in the forced swimming test. WAY100635 (a 5-HT(1A) receptor antagonist) inhibited the effects induced by co-administration of ADs and risperidone. Active behavior in the forced swimming test was not a consequence of an increased general activity, since the combined treatment with ADs and risperidone failed to enhance the locomotor activity of mice. The obtained results indicate that a low dose of risperidone enhances the activity of ADs in an animal model of depression, and that, among other mechanisms, 5-HT(1A) receptors may play a role in these effects.

To investigate functional changes in the brain serotonin transporter (SERT) after chronic antidepressant treatment, several techniques were used to assess SERT activity, density, or its mRNA content. Rats were treated by osmotic minipump for 21 d with the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) paroxetine or sertraline, the selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor desipramine (DMI), or the monoamine oxidase inhibitor phenelzine. High-speed in vivo electrochemical recordings were used to assess the ability of the SSRI fluvoxamine to modulate the clearance of locally applied serotonin in the CA3 region of hippocampus in drug- or vehicle-treated rats. Fluvoxamine decreased the clearance of serotonin in rats treated with vehicle, DMI, or phenelzine but had no effect on the clearance of serotonin in SSRI-treated rats. SERT density in the CA3 region of the hippocampus of the same rats, assessed by quantitative autoradiography with tritiated cyanoimipramine ([(3)H]CN-IMI), was decreased by 80-90% in SSRI-treated rats but not in those treated with phenelzine or DMI. The serotonin content of the hippocampus was unaffected by paroxetine or sertraline treatment, ruling out neurotoxicity as a possible explanation for the SSRI-induced decrease in SERT binding and alteration in 5-HT clearance. Levels of mRNA for the SERT in the raphe nucleus were also unaltered by chronic paroxetine treatment. Based on these results, it appears that the SERT is downregulated by chronic administration of SSRIs but not other types of antidepressants; furthermore, the downregulation is not caused by decreases in SERT gene expression.

Melatonin, the predominant product of the pineal gland, is involved in the maintenance of diurnal rhythms. Nocturnal blood concentrations of melatonin have been shown to be enhanced by fluvoxamine, but not by other serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Because fluvoxamine is an inhibitor of several cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, the authors studied the biotransformation of melatonin and the effects of fluvoxamine on the metabolism of melatonin in vitro using human liver microsomes and recombinant human CYP isoenzymes. Melatonin was found to be almost exclusively metabolized by CYP1A2 to 6-hydroxymelatonin and N-acetylserotonin with a minimal contribution of CYP2C19. Both reactions were potently inhibited by fluvoxamine, with a Ki of 0.02 microM for the formation of 6-hydroxymelatonin and 0.05 microM for the formation of N-acetylserotonin. Other than fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, paroxetine, citalopram, imipramine, and desipramine were also tested at 2 and 20 microM. Among the other antidepressants, only paroxetine was able to affect the metabolism of melatonin at supratherapeutic concentrations of 20 microM, which did not reach by far the magnitude of the inhibitory potency of fluvoxamine. The authors concluded that fluvoxamine is a potent inhibitor of melatonin degradation. Because this inhibitory action is also found in vivo, fluvoxamine might be used as an enhancer of melatonin, which might offer new therapeutic possibilities of fluvoxamine.

Artificial neural networks (ANN) represent a promising tool for combining multiple predictors in complex diseases. Antidepressant response in mood disorders is a typical complex phenomenon were a number of predictors influence outcome under non-linear interactions. In the present study we tested a neural network strategy for antidepressant outcome in subjects affected by major depression. One hundred and forty-five never reported depressed inpatients were included in this study (major depressives/bipolars: 111/34). A multi layer perceptron network composed of 1 hidden layer with 13 nodes was chosen. The network was performed on the sample of 145 cases divided as follows: train 73+verify 36+test 36. Correlation of predicted versus observed response was 0.46 in the test (independent) sample that corresponds to 21% of variance explained. Number of episodes, side effects, delusional features, baseline HAM-D, length of current episode, lithium augmentation, current medical condition and personality disorders were the main factors identified by the model. Sex, age at onset, polarity, plasma level and baseline VAS score were part of the model but with a lower rank. Overall, our findings suggest that neural networks could be a valid technique for the analysis of psychopharmacology studies. The complex interactions modelled through ANN may be eventually applied at the clinical level for the individualized therapy.

Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH(4)) is a coenzyme of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH), which are rate-limiting enzymes of monoamine biosynthesis. According to the monoamine hypothesis of depression, antidepressants will restore the function of the brain monoaminergic system and the BH(4) concentration. In the present study, we investigated the effect of paroxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), on the BH(4) levels and dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) turnover in the mesoprefrontal system, incorporating two risk factors of depression, social isolation and acute environmental change. Male ddY mice (8W) were divided into two housing groups, i.e., group-housing (eight animals per cage; 28 days), and isolation-housing (one per cage; 28 days), being p.o.-administered paroxetine (5 or 10 mg/kg; days 15-28), and exposed to a 20-min novelty stress (day 28). The levels of BH(4), DA, homovanilic acid (HVA), 5-HT, and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) were measured in the prefrontal cortex and midbrain. In both the regions, novelty stress significantly increased BH(4) levels under the isolation-housing condition, whereas these levels were decreased under the group-housing condition. Thus, social isolation altered the neurochemical response to novelty stress. Paroxetine significantly decreased BH(4) levels under the isolation-housing condition, whereas decreased HVA/DA and 5-HIAA/5-HT ratios were observed under the group-housing condition. Thus, social isolation may have influenced the suppressive effects of paroxetine on BH(4) levels as well as exerted an influence on DA and 5-HT turnover. We replicated our recent findings that SSRI, fluvoxamine, suppressed BH(4) levels, as well as DA and 5-HT turnover in the mouse mesoprefrontal system.

Sessions, 63 +/- 8, were necessary to reach the criterion for 14 rats that all subsequently recognized (100%) mirtazapine at the training dose. Mirtazapine blocks serotonin (5-HT)(2C) receptors, and the 5-HT(2C) antagonists, SB242,084, SB243,213 and S32006, revealed dose-dependent and full (> or =80%) substitution at doses of 2.5, 2.5, and 0.63 mg/kg, respectively. By contrast, the 5-HT(2A) antagonists, MDL100,907 and SR46349-B, the 5-HT(2B) antagonist, SB204,741, and the 5-HT(3) antagonist, ondansetron, showed no significant substitution. Though mirtazapine indirectly recruits 5-HT(1A) receptors, the 5-HT(1A) agonists, buspirone and 8-OH-DPAT, did not substitute. Mirtazapine blocks alpha(2)-adrenoceptors, but several alpha(2)-adrenoceptor antagonists (yohimbine, RX821,002 and atipamezole) failed to substitute. Despite blockade by mirtazapine of histamine H(1) receptors, no substitution was seen with the selective H(1) antagonist, pyrilamine. Finally, the selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor, reboxetine (0.16), fully substituted for mirtazapine, whereas the 5-HT/noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors, duloxetine and S33005, several 5-HT reuptake inhibitors (citalopram, fluvoxamine, and paroxetine) and the dopamine reuptake inhibitors, bupropion and GBR12,935, did not substitute.

We have evaluated, with the use of vertical microdialysis, the effects of fluvoxamine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) on the increase in serotonin and norepinephrine output elicited in rats prefrontal cortex by exposure to footshock stress. Exposure to footshock stress induced a marked increase in the cortical extracellular concentration of both serotonin and norepinephrine (+70% and +100%, respectively) in control rats. Long term, but not acute administration of fluvoxamine (10 mg/kg, i.p. once a days for 21 days) completely antagonized the stress induced increase in cortical serotonin extracellular concentration, while failed to modify the sensitivity of cortical noradrenergic neurons to the same stressful stimulus. Our results have shown that it is possible to independently modulate the sensitivity of cortical serotonergic neurons to stressful stimuli without altering the responsiveness of noradrenergic neurons to the same stress. Given the different role played by serotonin and norepinephrine in the modulation of the stress response, the availability of drugs able to selectively modulate the plastic response of serotonergic neurons to stress in specific brain areas might be important for the pharmacotherapy of anxiety disorders.

The cytochrome P450 enzyme CYP1A2 is crucial for the metabolism of many drugs, for example, tizanidine. As the effects of several non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and female sex steroids on CYP1A2 activity in vitro are unknown, their effects on phenacetin O-deethylation were studied and compared with the effects of model inhibitors in human liver microsomes, followed by prediction of their interaction potential with tizanidine in vivo. In vitro, fluvoxamine, tolfenamic acid, mefenamic acid and rofecoxib potently inhibited CYP1A2 [the 50% inhibitory concentration (IC(50)) < 10 microM]. Ethinyloestradiol, celecoxib, desogestrel and zolmitriptan were moderate (IC(50) 20-200 microM), and etodolac, ciprofloxacin, etoricoxib and gestodene weak inhibitors of CYP1A2 (IC(50) > 200 microM). At 100 microM, the other tested NSAIDs and steroids inhibited CYP1A2 less than 35%. Pre-incubation increased the inhibitory effects of rofecoxib, progesterone and desogestrel. Using the free portal plasma inhibitor concentration and the competitive inhibition model, the effect of fluvoxamine and the lack of effects of tolfenamic acid and celecoxib on tizanidine pharmacokinetics in human beings were well predicted. However, the effects of ciprofloxacin, rofecoxib and oral contraceptives were greatly underestimated even when the predictions were based on their total portal plasma concentration. Besides rofecoxib, and possibly mefenamic acid, other NSAIDs were predicted not to significantly inhibit CYP1A2 in human beings. The type of enzyme inhibition, particularly metabolism-dependent inhibition, free inhibitor concentration and accumulation of the inhibitor into the hepatocytes should be considered in extrapolations of in vitro results to human beings.

Ten sertraline-treated patients meeting 'Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV' criteria for both generalized anxiety disorder and major depression were compared with 18 healthy volunteers and 18 non-treated patients with similar psychopathology. Sertraline hydrochloride was administered orally at 50 mg daily for 10 months to 1 year. The participants were selected on the basis of similar responses to a questionnaire assessing risk of genotoxicity related to other aspects of life. All participants had very similar lifestyles, medical histories, biological and dietary factors. All subjects were non-smokers.

Although being a drug therapeutically used for a long time, the enzymatic metabolism of selegiline has not been adequately studied. In the current work we have studied the cytochrome P450 (CYP)-catalyzed oxidative metabolism of selegiline to desmethylselegiline and 1-methamphetamine and the effects of selegiline, desmethylselegiline and 1-methamphetamine on hepatic CYP enzymes in human liver microsomes in vitro. The apparent Km values for desmethylselegiline and 1-methamphetamine formation were on an average 149 microM and 293 microM, and the apparent Vmax values, 243 pmol/min./mg and 1351 pmol/min./mg, respectively. Furafylline and ketoconazole, the known reference inhibitors for CYP1A2 and CYP3A4, respectively, inhibited the formation of desmethylselegiline with Ki value of 1.7 microM and 15 microM. Ketoconazole inhibited also the formation of 1-methamphetamine with Ki of 18 microM. Fluvoxamine, an inhibitor of CYP1A2, CYP2C19 and CYP3A4, inhibited the formation of desmethylselegiline and 1-methamphetamine with Ki values of 9 and 25 microM, respectively. On the basis of these results we suggest that CYP1A2 and CYP3A4 contribute to the formation of desmethylselegiline and that CYP3A4 participates in the formation of 1-methamphetamine. In studies with CYP-specific model activities, both selegiline and desmethylselegiline inhibited the CYP2C19-mediated S-mephenytoin 4'-hydroxylation with average IC50 values of 21 microM and 26 microM, respectively. The Ki for selegiline was determined to be around 7 microM. Selegiline inhibited CYP1A2-mediated ethoxyresorufin O-deethylation with a Ki value of 76 microM. Inhibitory potencies of selegiline, desmethylselegiline and 1-methamphetamine towards other CYP-model activities were much lower. On this basis, selegiline and desmethylselegiline were shown to have a relatively high affinity for CYP2C19, but no evidence about selegiline metabolism by CYP2C19 was obtained.

It has been shown previously that sigma receptor agonists reveal potential antidepressant activity in experimental models. Moreover, some data indicate sigma receptor contribution to stress-induced responses (e.g., conditioned fear stress in mice), though the mechanism by which sigma ligands can exert their effects, remains unclear. Recent studies have indicated that antidepressant drugs (ADs) inhibit glucocorticoid receptor (GR) function in vitro. The aim of the present study was to find out whether sigma receptor ligands are able to directly affect GR action. To this end, we evaluated the effect of sigma receptor agonists and antagonists on GR function in mouse fibroblast cells (L929) stably transfected with mouse mammary tumor virus-chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (MMTV-CAT) plasmid (LMCAT cells). For this study, we chose SA4503, PRE 084, DTG (selective sigma(1) or sigma(1/2) receptor agonists) and BD 1047, SM 21, rimcazole (sigma receptor antagonists). Fluvoxamine, the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor with sigma(1/2) receptor affinity, was used for comparison. It was found that SM 21 (at 1, 3, 10 and 30 microM), BD 1047 (3, 10 and 30 microM) rimcazole (10 microM), and fluvoxamine (at 3, 10 and 30 microM) significantly inhibited corticosterone-induced gene transcription, while DTG, SA 4503 and PRE 084 remained ineffective. Thus, the sigma receptor agonists that predominantly showed antidepressant-like activity in behavioral models, were without effect in this in vitro model. These results suggest that antidepressant-like activity of sigma receptor agonists is independent of corticosterone-induced gene transcription. Therefore, the attenuation of GR function induced by sigma receptor antagonists remains ambiguous and requires further study.

5,718 children and adolescents received a total of 25,542 prescriptions between 2000 and 2004. The median number of prescriptions per patient was two (interquartile range 1-5). Common indications included depression and anxiety. Antidepressant prevalence increased from 2000 to 2002 (from 5.4 to 6.6 patients per 1,000 people), with a rise in the number of patients prescribed venlafaxine and SSRIs. However, between 2002 and 2004 there was a decrease in antidepressant prevalence (from 6.6 to 5.7 per 1,000). The prevalence of CSM-contraindicated antidepressants (citalopram, escitalopram, fluvoxamine, paroxetine, sertraline and venlafaxine) declined by a third (from 3.1 to 2.0 per 1,000), but there was no change in fluoxetine prevalence (from 2.1 to 2.3 per 1,000). The number of patients prescribed tricyclic antidepressants dropped marginally (from 2.0 to 1.7 per 1,000). Incidences followed the same trends as the prevalences, but there was a 48% reduction in the incidence of CSM-contraindicated antidepressants between 2002 and 2004. National antidepressant prescribing trends increased; paediatric prescribing trends were similar to national trends between 2000 and 2003; however, there was a 27% reduction in the paediatric prescribing rate of CSM-contraindicated antidepressants between 2002 and 2004.

Fluoxetine, zimelidine, sertraline, paroxetine, fluvoxamine, indalpine and citalopram are the selective inhibitors of serotonin uptake that have been most widely studied. Some of these compounds are or have been used clinically in the treatment of mental depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and bulimia, and therapeutic benefit has been claimed in additional diseases as well. By blocking the membrane uptake carrier which transports serotonin from the extracellular space to inside the serotonin nerve terminals, these compounds increase extracellular concentrations of serotonin and amplify signals sent by serotonin neurons. Because serotonin neurons are widespread in the central nervous system, the functional consequences of blocking serotonin uptake are diverse, but are generally subtle. Animals treated with serotonin uptake inhibitors look normal in gross appearance, but effects such as reduced aggressive behavior, decreased food intake and altered food selection, analgesia, anticonvulsant activity, endocrine changes and neurochemical changes have been demonstrated and characterized. Serotonin uptake inhibitors have helped in revealing some dynamics of serotonin neurons; for example, when uptake is inhibited and extracellular serotonin concentration increases, presynaptic as well as postsynaptic receptors for serotonin are activated to a greater degree. A consequence of increased activation of autoreceptors on serotonin cell bodies and nerve terminals is a reduction in firing of serotonin neurons and a decrease in serotonin synthesis and release. The result is a limit on the degree to which extracellular serotonin and serotonergic neurotransmission are increased.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

We report the case of a 76-year-old man with apraxia of eyelid opening (AEO) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis with dementia (ALS-D)/frontotemporal lobar degeneration with motor neuron disease (FTLD-MND). The initial symptom was AEO. Neurological examination revealed mainly bulbar symptoms with a neurogenic pattern on needle electromyograms of the tongue muscles and the biceps muscles. Furthermore, he developed severe dementia with frontal lobe dysfunction and progressive non-fluent aphasia. Brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed severe cerebral buy luvox online atrophy and leukoaraiosis in the bilateral frontal lobes and the anterior part of the bilateral temporal lobes; brain 99mTc ethyl cysteinate dimer single photon emission computed tomography (ECD SPECT) showed hypoperfusion in the same areas. The patient showed improvement in stereotyped behavior and AEO after treatment with 50 mg/day of fluvoxamine maleate (the initial dose was 25 mg/day). Because serotonin receptors are markedly reduced in the frontal and temporal cortexes of patients with FTLD, we considered that dysfunction of the serotonergic system in the frontotemporal lobe caused AEO. Considering the findings of this case along with those of previous reports, we propose that there is a relatively homogeneous development of ALS-D/FTLD-MND with AEO.

Fluvoxamine, a common antidepressant agent, is designed to exert its pharmacological effect by inhibiting synaptic serotonin reuptake. However, increasing evidence has demonstrated that σ1 receptors are likely to be involved in the mechanism of action of fluvoxamine. The present study aimed to observe the effects of fluvoxamine on the expression levels of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase 2γ (Camk2γ) and glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β) in fluvoxamine-treated N2a cells and attempted to elucidate whether σ1 receptors mediate the pharmacological effects of fluvoxamine. The N2a cells were randomly divided into three groups (each n=6): DMEM group (D group), 0.5 μmol/l fluvoxamine group (F group) and 0.2 μmol/l BD1047 (a σ1 receptor antagonist) + 0.5 μmol/l fluvoxamine group (BF group). Western blotting was used to determine the expression levels of mTOR, Camk2γ and GSK-3β in the cultured N2a cells after two days of incubation. The F group exhibited significant increases in the expression levels of mTOR and Camk2γ and a significant reduction in the expression levels of GSK-3β compared with those in the D group (P<0.01). By contrast, the BF group demonstrated significant reductions in the expression levels of mTOR and Camk2γ and a significant increase in the expression levels of GSK-3β, compared with those in the F group (P<0.01). These results suggest buy luvox online that σ1 receptors mediate fluvoxamine-elicited changes in the expression levels of mTOR, Camk2γ and GSK-3β in N2a cells, which indicates that σ1 receptors are likely to be involved in the pharmacological effects of fluvoxamine.

The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluvoxamine is a very potent inhibitor of the liver enzyme CYP1A2, which is the major P450 catalysing the biotransformation of caffeine. Thus, a pharmacokinetic study was undertaken with the purpose of documenting a drug-drug interaction between fluvoxamine and caffeine. The study was carried out as a randomized, in vivo, cross-over study including eight healthy volunteers. In Period A of the study, each subject took 200 mg caffeine orally, and in Period B, the subjects took fluvoxamine 50 mg per day for 4 days and 100 mg per day for 8 days. On day 8 in Period B, the subjects again ingested 200 mg caffeine. After caffeine intake, blood and urine were sampled at regular intervals. Caffeine and its three primary demethylated metabolites, paraxanthine, theobromine and theophylline in plasma and the buy luvox online same four compounds plus 11 more metabolites in urine were assayed by HPLC. During fluvoxamine, the median of the total clearance of caffeine decreased from 107 ml min-1 to 21 ml min-1 and the half-life increased from 5 to 31 h. The N3-demethylation clearance of caffeine to paraxanthine decreased from 46 to 9 ml min-1; the N1- and N7-demethylation clearances decreased from 21 to 9 ml min-1 and from 14 to 6 ml min-1, respectively. The results confirm that CYP1A2 is the main enzyme catalysing the biotransformation of caffeine, in particular the N3-demethylation and partly the N1- and N7-demethylation. The results indicate that intake of caffeine during fluvoxamine treatment may lead to caffeine intoxication. Finally, our study provides additional evidence that fluvoxamine can be used to probe CYP1A2 in drug metabolism.

Fluvoxamine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), buy luvox online significantly potentiates analgesia when administered in animals together with opioids. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of fluvoxamine on sufentanil antinociception and tolerance. Following animal care committee approval, the effects of continuous infusions of fluvoxamine and sufentanil were studied in behavioural tests (hot-plate test, tail-flick test, catalepsy test) in Sprague-Dawley rats with a jugular vein catheter. Saline was administered as a control. The time-effect curves for continuous intravenous sufentanil indicate dose-related antinociception and rapid development of tolerance in the hot-plate and tail-flick tests. Co-administration of fluvoxamine with continuous sufentanil enhances antinociception and attenuates development of tolerance, most clearly seen in the tail-flick test. Fluvoxamine alone and saline were not effective. No animal showed catalepsy. As a side effect we observed a marked loss of body weight. The IC50 values of sufentanil binding with and without fluvoxamine addition are 0.56+/-0.17 nM and 0.3+/-0.15 nM, respectively, indicating no direct effect on the occupancy of sufentanil on the mu-receptor by this serotonin reuptake inhibitor. In conclusion, we were able to show that the combination of an opioid with an SSRI at low doses improves analgesia and decreases development of tolerance in nociceptive tests in rats. The clinical implications of these promising results in an animal model, however, await further investigation.

We examined the effects of fluoxetine and fluvoxamine, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and desipramine, a selective noradrenaline (NA) reuptake inhibitor, given alone or in combination with diazepam on immobility time in the tail suspension test in diabetic mice. Immobility time was significantly longer in diabetic than in nondiabetic mice. Diazepam (0.1 and 0.3 mg/kg s.c.) dose-dependently decreased immobility time in diabetic mice to the level observed in saline-treated nondiabetic mice. However, diazepam had no significant effect on immobility time in nondiabetic mice. Fluoxetine (3-56 mg/kg i.p.) and desipramine (1-30 mg/kg i.p.) produced marked, dose-dependent suppression of immobility time in both nondiabetic and diabetic mice. However, anti-immobility effects buy luvox online of fluoxetine and desipramine in diabetic mice were less than those in nondiabetic mice. Fluvoxamine (3-30 mg/kg i.p.) produced a dose-dependent suppression of immobility time in nondiabetic mice but not in diabetic mice. The anti-immobility effects of fluoxetine, fluvoxamine and desipramine in nondiabetic mice were antagonized by pretreatment with diazepam (0.3 mg/kg s.c.). Furthermore, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine and desipramine had no effect on the immobility time in diazepam (0.3 mg/kg s.c.)-treated diabetic mice. These results indicate that the anti-immobility effects of SSRIs and desipramine are less in diabetic mice than in nondiabetic mice in the tail suspension test. Furthermore, in diabetic mice, SSRIs and selective NA reuptake inhibitors did not affect immobility time even though the prolonged duration of immobility was suppressed by pretreatment with diazepam.

Women are at great risk for mood and anxiety disorders during their childbearing years and buy luvox online may become pregnant while taking antidepressant drugs. In the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most frequently prescribed drugs, while it is largely unknown whether this medication affects the development of the central nervous system of the fetus. The possible effects are the product of placental transfer efficiency, time of administration and dose of the respective SSRI.

Because it was reported that diabetic rodents were resistant to the effects of several tricyclic antidepressants in various psychopharmacological models, we decided to test the hypothesis that the serotonergic dysfunction seen in diabetes might participate in this phenomenon. The ability of three serotonin-uptake blockers to reverse the performance deficit in learning induced by previous uncontrollable stress (learned-helplessness paradigm) was investigated in streptozocin-induced diabetic rats. Three buy luvox online weeks after induction of diabetes, rats were subjected to a session of 60 inescapable electric foot shocks and, after 48 h, to three daily sessions of two-way shuttle-box training. Three serotonin-uptake blockers were given intraperitoneally over 5 consecutive days. As with nondiabetic rats, citalopram (1 mg.kg-1. day-1), fluoxetine (2 and 4 mg.kg-1. day-1), and fluvoxamine (4 mg.kg-1.day-1) reduced the number of escape failures in diabetic rats. From these data, we suggest that it is unlikely that the impaired response of diabetic rats to tricyclic antidepressants is caused by serotonergic dysfunction.

In connection with clinical drug trials we compared the ECG-recordings during application of two different antidepressants. Tandamine (AY 23946) is a tricyclic drug with main buy luvox online effects on the norepinephrine reuptake, Fluvoxamine (DU 23 000) a nontricyclic antidepressant with a selective effect on the serotonin reuptake. No differences were observed regarding both frequency and patterns of the repolarisation disturbances. Thus, it appears that the chemical structure of the drug is not responsible for the "typical" form of the repolarisation disturbances. We further hypothesize that toxic effects and regulatory mechanisms of the cardiovascular system, caused by changes in norepinephrine and 5-hydroxytryptamine levels may be responsible for the areforementioned ECG aberrations.

We assessed the pattern of changes in depressive symptoms buy luvox online in delusional depressed inpatients treated openly with 300 mg/day of fluvoxamine for 6 weeks. We studied 59 inpatients affected by bipolar (n=23) and major depressive (n=36) disorders with psychotic features (DSM-IV) who showed complete responses to fluvoxamine treatment. Responses were evaluated using the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAMD-21, divided into: Core, Activity, Psychic anxiety, Somatic anxiety and Delusion clusters) administered at baseline and weekly until the 6th week. Random Regression Model (RRM) analysis was used to investigate the longitudinal time course of HAMD clusters. HAMD depressive symptom clusters decreased in a parallel manner from baseline to the end of the 6-week trial. The RRM analysis revealed no significant difference between HAMD clusters and the time course of the total HAMD score during treatment. Our data indicate that there is a simultaneous decrease in depressive symptoms during antidepressant treatment of delusional depressives.

It is known that long-term treatment with antidepressants induces an enhancement of neurotransmission in the pathway projecting from raphe nuclei to the hippocampus. In the case of selective serotonin (5-HT) reuptake inhibitors, this enhancement is due to a desensitization of presynaptic 5-HT autoreceptors and a concomitant increase in 5-HT release in terminal areas. To investigate whether this effect is accompanied by adaptive changes in the molecular machinery regulating transmitter release at serotonergic terminals, autophosphorylation and activity of Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II were measured in subsynaptosomal fractions from hippocampus and total cortex. Long-term treatment with two selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (paroxetine and fluvoxamine) and with a nonselective reuptake inhibitor (venlafaxine) induces a large increase of kinase autophosphorylation in synaptic vesicles and synaptic cytosol in the hippocampus but not in synaptosomal membranes. No significant change was detected in total cortex. The change is not reproduced by the direct addition of the drugs to the phosphorylation system and is not elicited by acute treatment of the animals. The increase in autophosphorylation is not accounted for by neosynthesis or translocation of the kinase to synaptic terminals. buy luvox online The change is restricted to the kinase located inside the terminals and is not detected in synaptosomal membranes, containing predominantly postsynaptic kinase, suggesting that only presynaptic kinase is affected. In the same fractions, the kinase activity is increased. These results are in agreement with reports suggesting a presynaptic effect for the SSRIs and disclose a new putative site of action for psychotropic drugs.

The development design Avodart Prostate Medicine and reliability of the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale have been described elsewhere. We focused on the validity of the Yale-Brown Scale and its sensitivity to change. Convergent and discriminant validity were examined in baseline ratings from three cohorts of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (N = 81). The total Yale-Brown Scale score was significantly correlated with two of three independent measures of obsessive-compulsive disorder and weakly correlated with measures of depression and of anxiety in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder with minimal secondary depressive symptoms. Results from a previously reported placebo-controlled trial of fluvoxamine in 42 patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder showed that the Yale-Brown Scale was sensitive to drug-induced changes and that reductions in Yale-Brown Scale scores specifically reflected improvement in obsessive-compulsive disorder symptoms. Together, these studies indicate that the 10-item Yale-Brown Scale is a reliable and valid instrument for assessing obsessive-compulsive disorder symptom severity and that it is suitable as an outcome measure in drug trials of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Knowing the negative effect of depression on lymphocyte number and activity in humans, we investigated the effect of antidepressant therapy on various lymphocyte subgroups. Cancer patients receiving treatment for at least 6 months were asked to take the antidepressant, fluvoxamine, for 28 days. Before and at the end of the study, physical and psychiatric examinations were performed, and the severity of depression was assessed by the Hamilton Scale for Depression (HAM-D). In addition, a sample of blood was withdrawn from the patients to quantify the following parameters: total leukocyte and lymphocyte counts, T4, T8, and Natural Killer (NK) cells, and lymphocyte response to the mitogens phytohemagglutinin (PHA) and pokeweed (PWM). Ten adult patients completed the study. Five of the 10 responded favorably to fluvoxamine treatment. Mean improvement was 50% from Finasteride Generic Propecia the score on day one. There was a significant correlation between the change in the HAM-D score of the "responders" and the change in NK cell counts (p = 0.02). The mean increment in NK cell number was 53%. In 4 of the 5 "non-responders", NK cell number dropped by 65% (mean). No correlation between the change in HAM-D score and any other immunological parameters was detected. Fluvoxamine increases NK cell counts in cancer patients, probably by its antidepressant effect.

1. The present study was undertaken to characterise the relationship between in vivo brain serotonin transporter (SERT) binding, plasma concentration and pharmacological effect of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in mice. Oral administration of fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, paroxetine and sertraline at pharmacologically relevant doses exerted dose- and time-dependent binding activity of brain SERT as revealed by significant increases in KD for specific [3H]paroxetine binding, and the in vivo SERT-binding potency was in the order of paroxetine>fluoxetine, sertraline>fluvoxamine. 2. The time courses of brain SERT binding by SSRIs in mice were mostly in parallel to those of their plasma concentrations. Also, norfluoxetine (active metabolite) has been suggested to contribute largely to the long-lasting binding activity of brain SERT after the fluoxetine administration. 3. Oral administration of each SSRI suppressed significantly the marble- Viagra Recommended Dosage burying behaviour with no change in locomotor activity in mice, and the extent and time course of suppression agreed well with those of brain SERT binding. Thus, the pharmacological potencies of SSRIs in the attenuation of marble-burying behaviour correlated significantly with their brain SERT binding activities. 4. In conclusion, the present study has provided the first in vivo evidences to support that fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, paroxetine and sertraline orally administered bind to the pharmacologically relevant brain SERT in mice and that their SERT-binding characteristics is closely associated with the pharmacokinetics and inhibition of marble-burying behaviour.

The purpose of the present paper was to determine the suitable dose and appropriate trial duration of fluvoxamine to treat for depression. A retrospective cohort analysis was performed among depression patients who were treated in the Department of Psychiatry, Kawasaki Medical School Hospital, Kurashiki, Japan, in 2000. A total of 72 patients received fluvoxamine to treat depression. The dose-response was compared and the initial significant clinical action was examined. The percentage showing improvement after receiving a high daily dose (100-150 mg) of fluvoxamine was 73.7%, but that showing improvement on a low daily dose (50-75 mg) was 47.1%. A significant difference between the two groups was seen on Kaplan-Meier analysis and log-rank test (chi2 = 4.814; d.f. = 1; P = 0.0282). The cumulative percentage of responder patients was more than 80% at the end of a 6-week period. Fluvoxamine is recommended at a daily dose of 100 mg or 150 mg as the initial dose. If a patient does not show improvement by the end of 6 weeks the treatment regimen of fluvoxamine should be altered.

We investigated the efficacy and safety of augmenting risperidone with fluvoxamine for the treatment of residual positive and negative symptoms in patients with chronic schizophrenia who had shown an incomplete response to risperidone. A total of 30 patients completed the open trial over a 12-week period during which fluvoxamine was added to risperidone. The result from the positive and negative syndrome scale (PANSS) and Simpson-Angus extrapyramidal effects (S-A) scale were examined at baseline, 1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks of treatment. There were no significant differences in PANSS positive, negative and general psychopathology scores, or in S-A scale scores at any point during the treatment. These results suggest that fluvoxamine appears to be ineffective in augmenting the risperidone treatment response in chronic schizophrenic patients. Further controlled trials will be needed to confirm this observation.

Compulsive buying behaviour has recently received long overdue attention as a clinical issue. Aim of this report is to describe treatment of two female patients diagnosed with compulsive buying disorder in comorbidity with binge eating disorder. In both cases, criteria for diagnosing of other axis I or axis II disorder were not present. Fluvoxamine was used in pharmacotherapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy as a psychotherapeutical approach. We conclude that fluvoxamine and psychodynamic psychotherapy may be effective in treatment of compulsive buyers in comorbidity with binge eating disorder.

Fluvoxamine caused a significant increase in tacrine area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC): arythmetic mean, 27 (95% confidence interval [CI], 19 to 38) ng.hr/ml versus 224 (95% CI, 166 to 302) ng. hr/ml. Fluvoxamine caused a decrease in the apparent oral clearance of tacrine from 1683 +/- 802 to 200 +/- 106 L/hr (mean +/- SD), which was explained by a decrease in its nonrenal clearance. Five subjects had gastrointestinal side effects during fluvoxamine administration. Fluvoxamine administration was associated with significant increases in the plasma AUC values of three monohydroxylated tacrine metabolites and in the total urinary recovery measurements of tacrine and its metabolites (9.1% +/- 4.6% versus 24.0% +/- 2.6% of recovery). These results may be attributable to fluvoxamine-dependent inhibition of CYP1A/, which is responsible of the biotransformation of tacrine into its monohydroxylated metabolites and further into dihydroxylated and reactive metabolites.

In this paper, a fast, sensitive and selective LC-MS/MS method is described for the simultaneous determination of amitriptyline, imipramine, clomipramine, fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, fluvoxamine, citalopram and venlafaxine, as well as some of their main metabolites (nortriptyline, desipramine, norclomipramine and norfluoxetine), in oral fluid and plasma. The sample (0.2 mL) was extracted with an automated solid-phase extraction system (ASPEC XL), using mixed mode OASIS MCX cartridges. Chromatographic separation was performed in a Sunfire C18 IS column (20 mmx2.1 mm, 3.5 microm), using a gradient of acetonitrile and ammonium formate (pH 3; 2 mM) as mobile phase, which allowed the elution of all the compounds in less than 5 min. The method has been fully validated in both specimens. This method was initially applied to the analysis of oral fluid and plasma samples from patients on antidepressant treatment in order to assess for which compounds it was likely to find a good correlation between both matrices. The best results were obtained for venlafaxine, so the study was extended for this compound, comparing the ratio between oral fluid and plasma concentrations (ROF/PL) in five patients on venlafaxine treatment when both samples were collected simultaneously on four different occasions. An important inter and intraindividual variability was found in oral fluid concentrations for 150 mg dose (mean=287.5 ng/m, range 58.8-531.2 ng/mL) and for 75 mg dose (mean=186.3 ng/mL, range=82.1-289.2 ng/mL). R(OF/PL) was calculated for each patient on the four different occasions, showing also a high variability (CV=24.2-69.6%).

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) are known to increase offspring production in Daphnia magna. This study tested the hypothesis that the increase of serotonin postsynaptic activity by SSRI changes the perception of the food environment and switches life-history responses toward higher food level: females reproduced earlier, producing more but smaller offspring. D. magna reproduction tests, respiration, feeding, and survival-starvation assays and studies of lipids, proteins, and carbohydrate levels of unexposed and exposed females to the SSRI fluoxetine and fluvoxamine and the 5-HT serotonin receptor antagonist cyproheptadine were conducted. Factorial life-history experiments and reproductive assays showed that exposure to SSRI increased juvenile development rate, clutch size, and decrease offspring size at low and intermediate levels of food rations. These effects were reversed by the presence of cyproheptadine, indicating that 5-HT function was essential to the SSRI effects on Daphnia and linking them to the pharmacological effects of SSRI in humans. Respirometry and survival assays and biochemical analyses of lipids, proteins and carbohydrate levels showed that exposure to SSRI increased oxygen consumption rates and decreased carbohydrate levels in adult females. These changes did not affect survival under starving conditions, but they significantly affected the capacity of the exposed animals to survive under anoxic conditions. These results suggest that SSRI increased aerobic catabolism in D. magna making exposed individuals apparently more able to exploit food resources under normoxic conditions, but at the cost of being more sensitive to low oxygen levels, a common situation in natural environments.

Several chemically unrelated agents has been developed and introduced in the past decade, to supplement the earlier antidepressants. These include inhibitors of the reuptake of serotonin [the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI)] or noradrenaline (reboxetine) or both (milnacipran and venlafaxine), as well as drugs with distinct neurochemical profiles such as mirtazapine, nefazodone, moclobemide and tianeptine. Like the earlier drugs, these newer antidepressants are almost totally biotransformed before excretion, except for milnacipran whose clearance appears to be due equally to both urinary excretion and metabolism. Sometimes--as in the case of moclobemide--up to 20 metabolites have been identified in body fluids. In some cases, however, only a few metabolites have been detected, and a substantial proportion of the dose remains unaccounted for (e.g. fluoxetine and fluvoxamine). Metabolism generally proceeds through sequential or parallel oxidative pathways. These may be affected to varying degrees by physiological and pathological factors and those mediated by cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2D6 and CYP2C19 through genetic polymorphism. Some are influenced by chirality (e.g. the dealkylation of citalopram and fluoxetine), although information on this aspect of disposition is still lacking for other drugs existing as racemates (e.g. mirtazapine and tianeptine) and milnacipran, which is probably a mixture of 4 stereoisomers. Others again are saturable within the therapeutic range of doses (e.g. some pathways of metabolism of fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, nefazodone, paroxetine and venlafaxine). This may explain the individual variability with all these drugs which, from the pharmacokinetic point of view, is the same as with tricyclic agents. Our knowledge of the isoenzymes involved in the various oxidation pathways and their relevance for potential drug interactions varies from a considerable amount for most of the SSRI and nefazodone, to minimal for reboxetine and tianeptine. This information is useful for predicting the pharmacokinetic interactions mediated through inhibition of specific isoenzymes. This would be better appreciated if the enzymatic mechanisms involved in the biotransformation of the metabolite(s), and their role in drug interactions, were also known. This information is still lacking for some drugs, although metabolites may exhibit in vitro inhibitory potencies of similar to (paroxetine and its M2 metabolite as inhibitors of CYP2D6) or even greater than that of the parent drug (norfluoxetine is more potent than fluoxetine as an inhibitor of CYP3A3/4, and in view of the longer half-life (t1/2) of the metabolite the potential for interactions may persist for weeks after discontinuation of the parent drug). While we do know something about the biological activity of the metabolites of some of these drugs, we know very little about others. With few exceptions this knowledge refers only to the major metabolite(s) and regards the main in vitro effects as exerted by the parent drug. However, in vitro potency and selectivity may not translate directly into in vivo, and either major or minor metabolites may have characteristic in vitro and in vivo properties. For example, unlike the parent drug some minor ring-opened metabolites of moclobemide have monoamine oxidase-B inhibitory activity in the rat, and the nefazodone metabolite m-chlorophenyl-piperazine shows activity on 5-HT2C receptors in rats and humans. Data on the brain-to-blood partition of metabolites compared with their parent drug are available only in a few cases. They are still not known for the main metabolites of fluvoxamine, milnacipran, mirtazapine, moclobemide, nefazodone, paroxetine, reboxetine and venlafaxine, despite the fact that total blood concentrations do not always reflect the metabolite: parent drug ratio in brain. Thus, in most cases, we do not really know what part hepatic metabolism plays in the overall effect of the administered parent drug.
