lexapro 20mg medication

Polymorphism of tryptophan hydroxylase, the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of brain serotonin (5-HT), is associated with less synthesis of brain 5-HT in DBA/2J and BALB/c than in C57BL/6J and 129/Sv mice. We selected the forced swimming test, a mouse model used to assess the antidepressant potential of drugs, and neurochemical techniques to study strain differences in the response to citalopram, a selective 5-HT reuptake inhibitor. Citalopram reduced immobility time in C57BL/6J and 129/Sv mice but had no such effect in DBA/2J and BALB/c mice. The drug reduced accumulation of 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), an indicator of 5-HT synthesis, in C57BL/6J and 129/Sv mice but much less in DBA/2J and BALB/c mice. Pretreatment with tryptophan raised 5-HTP accumulation and reinstated the antidepressant-like effect of citalopram in DBA/2J and BALB/c mice, whereas pharmacological inhibition of 5-HT synthesis prevented the effect of citalopram in C57BL/6J and 129/Sv mice. Because there were no strain differences in catecholamine synthesis, locomotor activity, and brain levels of citalopram at the end of the behavioral test, the results suggest that the failure of citalopram to reduce immobility time in DBA/2J and BALB/c mice is attributable to genotype-dependent impairment of 5-HT synthesis. Interstrain comparisons could probably be a useful strategy for understanding the mechanisms underlying the response to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

To clarify the neuroendocrine response to 5HT across lifespan, we assessed ACTH, cortisol, DHEA, PRL, and GH responses to citalopram (CT) in young adults (YA) (no.=12, 29.2±1.7 yr mean±SEM), middle aged (MA) (no.=12, 54.3±0.9 yr), and elderly (ES) (no.=12, 69.3±0.9 yr) males. All the subjects received placebo (saline iv over 120 min) or CT (20 mg iv over 120 min). Blood samples were taken every 15 min up to 240 min.

Many new mothers who need antidepressant or mood-stabilising drug treatment may wish to breastfeed their infants, but are hesitant to do so because of possible harmful effects of the medication on the infant. This article reviews current data on drug excretion into breast milk and the effects on the breast-fed child, and provides recommendations for the use of the different psychotropic drugs in lactating women. Relevant literature was identified through systematic searches of MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Science Citation Index Expanded (ISI) from 1966 to February 2005. The present knowledge is based on the accumulation of case studies. No randomised controlled trials in breast-fed infants have been performed and there is a lack of long-term follow-up studies. Use of SSRIs and TCAs (except doxepin) is compatible with breastfeeding. However, if treatment with an SSRI is started in the postpartum period, fluoxetine and citalopram may not be drugs of first choice. With regard to other antidepressants, such as venlafaxine, trazodone, mirtazapine, reboxetine, moclobemide and other MAOIs, very little knowledge exists. Breastfeeding should be avoided while using lithium. Carbamazepine and sodium valproate (valproic acid) are generally better tolerated by the breast-fed infant than lithium. Data on lamotrigine are still sparse. Knowledge is also scarce on the novel antipsychotics and thus recommendations in lactating women cannot be made for these agents. It is unwise to expose infants unnecessarily to drugs that may have severe adverse effects. As such, clozapine should probably be avoided because of the risk of agranulocytosis. Our knowledge of the impact of drug exposure through breast milk is still limited. Infant drug exposure is, however, generally higher during pregnancy through placental passage than through breast milk. Despite the low dosage transferred to the infant through breast milk, premature infants and infants with neonatal diseases or inherited disturbances in metabolism may be vulnerable to such exposure.

Currently there are few studies directly comparing citalopram to other antidepressants for LLD. The small number of studies and methodological issues in many studies limit any conclusions about the relative efficacy and tolerability of citalopram compared to other antidepressants. Well-designed studies comparing citalopram to other antidepressants for LLD are required.

Benefit from antidepressant treatment such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) may depend on individual differences in acute effects on neural emotion processing. The short ('S') allele of the serotonin transporter (5-HTT)-linked polymorphic region (5-HTTLPR) is associated with both negative emotion processing biases and poorer treatment outcomes. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to explore the effects of 5-HTTLPR on the impact of the SSRI escitalopram during processing of positive and negative emotional images, as well as neutral stimuli.

Herein we report the analysis of 27 selected psychoactive compounds found in the wastewater of the largest suburb in the eastern part of Central Europe Bratislava—Petržalka, Slovakia. Thirteen of them (MDMA, methamphetamine, amphetamine, THC-COOH, benzoylecgonine, codeine, tramadol, venlafaxine, oxazepam, citalopram, methadone, EDDP, cocaine) were found in concentrations above 30 ng/L. These compoundswere selected for further monitoring. The possibility of complete degradation of these 13 substances by zerovalent iron and iron(VI) was studied in thewastewater from the Petržalka treatment plant. During the week the concentration of themajority of the studied compounds inwastewaterwas stable. Concentrations of MDMA, cocaine, tramadol, and oxazepam reached significantly higher levels during the weekend.Only about 10% removal efficiency for tramadol, venlafaxine, oxazepam, MDMA, citalopram, methadone, and EDDP was observed at the treatment plant. In contrast, methamphetamine, amphetamine, and codeine were removed with 68%, 83%, and 53% efficiency, respectively. The degradation of synthetic drugs (methamphetamine, cocaine, MDMA) in wastewater is limited, while cannabis (of natural biological origin) is degradedwith efficiency greater than 90%. After utilization of the Fenton reaction, its modification, and use of ferrate(VI), a high efficiency of eliminating all of these substances to values below the limit of detection was achieved.

Citalopram and sertraline can be used during pregnancy, while some controversy remains over in utero exposure to paroxetine and fluoxetine, which might be associated with an increased risk of foetal cardiovascular malformation. Less data is available concerning fluvoxamine and escitalopram use but current data does not indicate a specific risk. Citalopram, paroxetine and sertraline can be used during breast-feeding, while fluoxetine probably should be avoided. Nortriptyline, amitriptyline and clomipramine can be used during pregnancy and lactation, although data are more abundant for SSRI treatment. Venlafaxine can be used during pregnancy, while caution is advised during breast-feeding. Other antidepressants should be avoided because of lack of data on their effect. A strongly indicated lithium therapy should be continued. Close monitoring of lithium levels throughout pregnancy is mandatory, as is detailed foetal echocardiography in weeks 18-22 of gestation. Lithium should not be used during breast-feeding. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a valid option if indicated, both during pregnancy and breast-feeding.

This was an open, randomised pilot study. A total of 34 male volunteers with no existing urinary symptoms were randomised: 17 to escitalopram 10 mg once daily and 17 to duloxetine 60 mg once daily for 16 days. Doses were then tapered to 5 mg and 30 mg, respectively for 14 days. Subjects measured their urinary flow at home using a Urospec device for 48 hours pre-dose, immediately after the first dose, at 2 weeks and 5 days after stopping treatment.

Hyperbilirubinemia is a pathological condition of excessive accumulation of conjugated or unconjugated bilirubin in blood. It has been associated with neurotoxicity and non-neural organ dysfunctions, while it can also be a warning of liver side effects. Hyperbilirubinemia can either be a result of overproduction of bilirubin due to hemolysis or dyserythropoiesis, or the outcome of impaired bilirubin elimination due to liver transporter malfunction or inhibition. There are several reports in literature that inhibition of organic anion transporting polypeptides 1B1 and 1B3 (OATP1B1 and OATP1B3) might lead to hyperbilirubinemia. In this study we created a set of classification models for hyperbilirubinemia, which, besides physicochemical descriptors, also include the output of classification models of human OATP1B1 and 1B3 inhibition. Models were based on either human data derived from public toxicity reports or animal data extracted from the eTOX database VITIC. The generated models showed satisfactory accuracy (68%) and area under the curve (AUC) for human data and 71% accuracy and 70% AUC for animal data. However, our results did not indicate strong association between OATP inhibition and hyperbilirubinemia, neither for humans nor for animals.

Hippocampal neurogenesis is potentially implicated in etiology of depression and as the final common mechanism underlying antidepressant treatments. However, decreased neurogenesis has not been demonstrated in depressed patients and, in animals, reduced cytogenesis was shown in healthy rats exposed to stressors, but, so far, not in models of depression. Here we report that the number of BrdU positive cells in hippocampus was (1) significantly higher in a rat model of depression, the Flinders Sensitive Line (FSL) compared to control FRL, (2) increased in both FSL and FRL following maternal separation, (3) reduced by escitalopram treatment in maternally separated animals to the level found in non-separated animals. These results argue against the prevailing hypothesis that adult cytogenesis is reduced in depression and that the common mechanism underlying antidepressant treatments is to increase adult cytogenesis. The results also point to the importance of using a disease model and not healthy animals for testing effects of potential treatments for human depression and suggest other cellular mechanisms of action than those that had previously been proposed for escitalopram.

Pinoline (6-methoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-beta-carboline) is a naturally occurring compound in the mammalian body which inhibits 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) uptake and exerts antidepressant-like behavioural effects in rats. The present study investigates the effects of pinoline on [3H]citalopram binding to the 5-HT transporter on rat brain. Our experiments revealed that pinoline inhibits [3H]citalopram binding with IC50 1255 +/- 167 nM and Ki 572 +/- 76 nM; Hill coefficient for inhibition was close to 1. In saturation experiments, pinoline co-incubated with [3H]citalopram, increased dose-dependently the Kd value but had no effect on the Bmax value of [3H]citalopram binding. Micromolar concentrations of pinoline did not have influence on the dissociation rate of specifically bound [3H]citalopram. Binding parameters of [3H]citalopram did not differ significantly in cerebral cortex and hippocampus of rats treated for 10 days with pinoline or vehicle. These results indicate that pinoline did not have any modulative influence on the activity of 5-HT transporter and it interacts competitively with citalopram on the substrate recognition site of the 5-HT transporter.

There is limited documentation of the importance of heterozygous cytochrome P450 (CYP) mutations on drug exposure. This study was designed to evaluate the influence of heterozygous mutations in CYP2C19 on the serum concentration of racemic citalopram and escitalopram (S-citalopram). Eighty-three samples from subjects with determined CYP2C19 and CYP2D6 genotype receiving racemic citalopram or S-citalopram as part of their clinical treatment were collected from a routine therapeutic drug monitoring database. Concentration/dose (C/D) ratios, parent drug/metabolite ratios, and serum concentrations in CYP2C19 homozygous extensive metabolizers (EMs) and heterozygous extensive metabolizers (HEMs) were compared. The median C/D ratio was significantly higher in the HEM group compared with the EM group, both for racemic citalopram (8.0 vs. 4.9, P < 0.01) and S-citalopram (5.3 vs. 2.6, P < 0.01). The median parent drug/metabolite ratio was significantly higher in the HEM group compared with the EM group, both for racemic citalopram (2.9 vs. 1.6, P < 0.01) and for S-citalopram (2.4 vs. 1.2, P < 0.01). A higher median non-dose-corrected serum concentration also was observed in HEMs compared with EMs both for S-citalopram (P < 0.01) and racemic citalopram (P = 0.066). This study shows that the metabolism of racemic citalopram and S-citalopram is significantly impaired in CYP2C19 HEMs. Higher absolute serum concentrations indicate that this is not compensated for by dose reductions in clinical practice.

Participants with chronic MDD were at greater socioeconomic disadvantage and had greater medical and psychiatric disease burden. The chronic and nonchronic groups did not differ in rates of remission at 12 weeks (35.9% vs 42.0%, respectively; odds ratio [OR] = 0.778, P = .1500; adjusted OR [AOR] = 0.956, P = .8130) or at 28 weeks (41.0% vs 49.8%, respectively; OR = 0.706, P = .0416; AOR = 0.837, P = .3448). Participants with chronic MDD had higher final QIDS-SR(16) scores and smaller overall percent changes in QIDS-SR(16) from baseline to exit, but these differences did not remain after adjusting for covariates. There were no significant differences in adverse events or side effect burden. No significant interactions were found between chronicity and type of treatment at 12 or 28 weeks.

Among all women, median composite baseline Female Sexual Function Index score was 18.1 (interquartile range 2.4-26.5, n=200) and among sexually active women was 22.8 (interquartile range 17.4-27.0, n=75) in the escitalopram group and 23.6 (interquartile range 14.9-31.0, n=70) in the placebo group. Treatment with escitalopram did not affect composite Female Sexual Function Index score at follow-up compared with placebo (P=.18 all women; P=.47 sexually active at baseline). Composite mean Female Sexual Function Index change from baseline to week 8 was 0.1 (95% confidence interval [CI] -1.5 to 1.7) for escitalopram and 2.0 (95% CI 0.2-3.8) for placebo. The Female Sexual Distress Scale results did not differ between groups (P=.73) nor did adverse reports of sexual function. At week 8, among those women sexually active at baseline, there was a small difference between groups in Female Sexual Function Index domain mean score change in lubrication (P=.02) and a marginal nonsignificant difference in orgasm (P=.07).

Results from pilot studies of several SSRIs and SNRIs suggest that they may improve menopausal mood and sleep symptoms, but few studies have demonstrated significant improvement compared with placebo. One SNRI (venlafaxine) improved menopausal mood symptoms and two SSRIs (citalopram and paroxetine) improved sleep, each in a single placebo-controlled trial of women with VMS. Additional placebo-controlled trials are needed to determine whether SSRIs or SNRIs are effective treatment options for women who cannot or choose not to use hormone therapy.

It may be possible to identify patients treated with specific serotonin reuptake inhibitors who will not achieve sustained remission by 8 weeks. If supplementation were implemented accordingly, the number of overtreated patients would be small. However, a substantial number of patients who should be supplemented would be missed, indicating a need for greater sensitivity of the prediction model. Further studies are needed.

Medication dosing regimens may have contributed to the failure of several RPCTs to show drug efficacy in the treatment of pediatric MDD. In addition, the doses of medication used in these RPCTs may also have contributed to the safety and tolerability concerns that have been raised with these drugs. PK and dose-ranging studies should be performed prior to the initiation of definitive efficacy trials so that empirically supported dosing strategies can be incorporated into the design of RPCTs of antidepressants in children and adolescents suffering from MDD.

Multiple kinase pathways determine serotonin transporter (SERT) regulation. We hypothesized a decrease in kinase expression with chronic selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) administration necessary to regulate extracellular serotonin. We studied whole brain kinase mRNA expression on Affymetrix gene chips in rats treated with placebo 3 and 21 days, fluoxetine 3 and 21 days, and citalopram buy lexapro 21 days. Protein kinase C (PKC)-delta, PKC-gamma, stress-activated protein kinase, cAMP-dependent protein kinase beta isoform, Janus protein kinase, and phosphofructokinase M were all down regulated chronically with citalopram and fluoxetine, but not with acute fluoxetine. The results are consistent with homeostasis of SERT function through a decrease in PK expression.

Escitalopram is the first antidepressant introduced according to chirality rules, it is an S-enantiomer of citalopram, the drug which has been used for many years. Experimental studies showed that the property of serotonin transporter inhibition--one of the main mechanisms of antidepressive action is connected with the S-enantiomer of citalopram, and that escitalopram is the most selective inhibitor of this transporter. The results of most clinical studies in patients with depression show significant superiority of escitalopram, 10-20 mg/day, over placebo, as early as within the first week of treatment, and a faster onset of action and higher therapeutic efficacy of escitalopram, compared to citalopram, 20-40 mg/day. A similar efficacy of escitalopram, 10 mg/day, and sertraline 50-200 mg/day, as well as escitalopram, 20 mg/day, and venlafaxine, 225 mg/day was demonstrated. It has also been shown that escitalopram, 10-20 mg/day, exerts therapeutic efficacy in general anxiety disorder, panic disorder and social phobia. Escitalopram may meet many criteria for the optimal antidepressant. The drug is efficacious in depressions of various intensity, has a rapid onset of action and, in long-term treatment, prevents the relapses of the illness. It exerts therapeutic activity in anxiety disorders. The dosing is convenient, and the drug is safe and well tolerated due to a mild profile of side-effects and favorable pharmacokinetic properties. Further studies are needed, aiming e.g. at the comparison of the therapeutic efficacy of escitalopram with other antidepressant drugs in different patients and buy lexapro the assessment of the effect of the drug on cognitive functions. The results of such studies may provide a convincing answer to the question whether escitalopram can be regarded as an antidepressant drug belonging to the second generation of serotonin transporter inhibitors.

The aim of this study was to explore the potential of a new selective dopamine transporter (DAT) compound as a radioligand for positron emission tomography (PET) examination of DAT in the human brain. The high affinity DAT compound N-(3-iodoprop-2 E-enyl)-2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-(4-methylphenyl)nortropane (PE2I) was radiolabelled by the O-methylation approach buy lexapro and the binding was characterised by PET in cynomolgus monkeys and a healthy man. Metabolite levels in plasma were measured by gradient high-performance liquid chromatography. O-methylation of the corresponding free acid precursor with [(11)C]methyl triflate gave high radiochemical yield (80%) and specific radioactivity (55 GBq/ microM). [(11)C]PE2I binding in cynomolgus monkeys was nine times higher in the striatum than in the cerebellum at peak equilibrium, which appeared 55-65 min after injection. Displacement and pretreatment measurements using unlabelled beta-CIT, GBR 12909, cocaine, citalopram and maprotiline confirmed that [(11)C]PE2I binds selectively to DAT. In a preliminary study in one human subject the radioactivity ratios of the striatum and substantia nigra to the cerebellum were 10 and 1.8, respectively, at peak equilibrium, which appeared at 40-50 min and 20 min, respectively, after injection. The fraction of the total radioactivity in monkey and human plasma representing unchanged [(11)C]PE2I was 15-20% at 40 min after injection. The present characterisation of binding in monkey and man suggests that [(11)C]PE2I is a suitable PET radioligand for quantitative regional examination of DAT in man.

From clinical studies it is known that recurrent depressive episodes associate with a reduced hippocampal volume. Conversely, preclinical studies have shown that chronic antidepressant treatment increases hippocampal neurogenesis. Consequently, it has been suggested that a deficit in hippocampal neurogenesis is implicated in the pathophysiology of depression. To study a potential correlation buy lexapro between recovery and hippocampal cytogenesis, we established the chronic mild stress (CMS) rat model of depression. When rats are subjected to CMS, several depressive symptoms develop, including the major symptom anhedonia. Rats were exposed to stress for 2 weeks and subsequently to stress in combination with antidepressant treatment for 4 consecutive weeks. The behavioral deficit measured in anhedonic animals is a reduced intake of a sucrose solution. Prior to perfusion animals were injected with bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU), a marker of proliferating cells. Brains were sectioned horizontally and newborn cells positive for BrdU were counted in the dentate gyrus and tracked in a dorsoventral direction.CMS significantly decreased sucrose consumption and cytogenesis in the ventral part of the hippocampal formation. During exposure to the antidepressant escitalopram, given as intraperitoneally dosages of either 5 or 10 mg/kg/day, animals distributed in a bimodal fashion into a group, which recovered (increase in sucrose consumption), and a subgroup, which refracted treatment (no increase in sucrose consumption). Chronic treatment with escitalopram reversed the CMS-induced decrease in cytogenesis in the dentate gyrus of the ventral hippocampal formation, but in recovered animals only. Our data show a correlation between recovery from anhedonia, as measured by cessation of behavioral deficits in the CMS model, and an increase in cytogenesis in the dentate gyrus of the ventral hippocampal formation.

The effect of repeated treatment with imipramine, citalopram and ECS on the density of alpha 1-adrenoceptors in the cerebral cortex of rats with a dopaminergic lesion was studied. Imipramine and citalopram produced buy lexapro alph 1-upregulation in normal animals but not in animals with a dopaminergic lesion. On the other hand, ECS, produced such an effect in both normal and lesioned rats. Our results indicate that the investigated drugs (imipramine, citalopram) and ECS induce alpha 1-up-regulation via different mechanisms, and that the effect of these drugs depends on intact dopaminergic nerve terminals.

Umbilical cord concentrations of antidepressants and their metabolites were almost invariably lower than corresponding maternal concentrations. Maternal doses predicted umbilical concentrations of fluoxetine and sertraline. Mean umbilical cord to buy lexapro maternal serum ratios were significantly lower for sertraline than fluoxetine, suggesting that sertraline may produce less fetal medication exposure than fluoxetine near delivery.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) has been successfully treated with proserotonergic agents for some years. Clomipramine was the first drug used, but several clinical trials have been conducted more recently to assess the antiobsessional efficacy of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). The aim of this study was to compare the antiobsessional efficacy of three SSRIs, fluvoxamine, paroxetine, and citalopram. Paracetamol 1g Tablets Thirty obsessive-compulsive patients without comorbid axis I diagnoses except for tic disorder as assessed by DSM-III-R criteria gave informed consent and were recruited consecutively; they underwent a 10-week randomized treatment with fluvoxamine, paroxetine, or citalopram. Ratings were performed under blind conditions every 2 weeks from baseline to the end of the study and by the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale, the National Institute of Mental Health-Obsessive-Compulsive Scale, the Clinical Global Impressions Scale, and the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression. Quantitative and qualitative analyses of the antiobsessional efficacy of the three drugs were completed with analysis of variance with repeated measures and survival analysis. The results showed no significant differences between the three treatments. The preliminary conclusions drawn from this study concern the interchangeable antiobsessional effects of different SSRIs, although further studies of "cross-response" to these drugs are needed.

Previous studies demonstrated that analogs of benztropine (BZT) possess high affinity for the dopamine transporter, inhibit dopamine uptake, but generally have behavioral effects different from those of cocaine. One hypothesis is that muscarinic-M(1) receptor actions interfere with cocaine-like effects. Several tropane-nitrogen substitutions of 4',4"-diF-BZT have reduced M(1) affinity compared with the CH(3)-analog (AHN 1-055; 3alpha-[bis-(4-fluorophenyl)methoxy]tropane). All of the compounds displaced [(3)H]WIN 35,428 (2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-(4-fluorophenyl)tropane) binding with affinities ranging from 11 to 108 nM. Affinities at norepinephrine ([(3)H]nisoxetine) and serotonin ([(3)H]citalopram) transporters ranged from 457 to 4810 and 376 to 3260 nM, respectively, and at muscarinic M(1) receptors ([(3)H]pirenzepine) from 11.6 (AHN 1-055) to higher values, reaching 1030 nM for the other BZT-analogs. Cocaine and AHN 1-055 produced dose-related increases in locomotor activity in mice, with AHN 1-055 less effective than cocaine. The other compounds were ineffective in stimulating activity. In rats discriminating cocaine (29 micromol/kg i.p.) from saline, WIN 35,428 fully substituted for cocaine, whereas Cumulative Accutane Dose AHN 1-055 produced a maximal substitution of 79%. None of the other analogs fully substituted for cocaine. WIN 35,428 produced dose-related leftward shifts in the cocaine dose-effect curve, whereas selected BZT analogs produced minimal changes in the effects of cocaine. The results suggest that reducing M(1) affinity of 4',4"-diF-BZT with N-substitutions reduces effectiveness in potentiating the effects of cocaine. Furthermore, although the BZT-analogs bind with high affinity at the dopamine transporter, their behavioral effects differ from those of cocaine. These compounds have reduced efficacy compared with cocaine, a long duration of action, and may serve as leads for the development of medications to treat cocaine abuse.

Escitalopram patients (n=10,465) had better treatment persistence compared to patients initiated on other SSRI/SNRIs Trileptal Drug Class (n=28,310): the hazard ratio of all discontinuation was 0.96 (95% confidence interval [CI]=0.94-0.99) for the escitalopram therapy (p=0.003), and the hazard ratio of switching to another second-generation antidepressant was 0.91 (95% CI=0.87-0.94) for the escitalopram therapy (p<0.001). Escitalopram patients also had fewer inpatient service and emergency room visits. Adjusted average total all-cause healthcare costs and inpatient services costs were $839 and $405 lower in the escitalopram group (both p<0.05).

Citalopram is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), widely used in the treatment of depressive disorders. It has been shown that citalopram affects seizure susceptibility. Although the exact mechanism of these effects are not yet fully understood, recent data suggest that 5HT(3) receptors and nitric oxide (NO) might participate in the central effects of SSRIs. In this study in a mouse model of clonic seizure induced by pentylenetetrazole we investigated whether 5-HT(3) receptors are involved in the effects of citalopram on seizure threshold. In our experiments, citalopram at lower doses (0.5 and 1mg/kg, i.p) significantly increased the seizure threshold and at higher doses (≥25mg/kg) showed proconvulsive effects. Moreover, mCPBG (a 5-HT(3) receptor agonist) at low and non-effective doses augmented while non-effective doses of tropisetron prevented the anticonvulsive properties of citalopram. On the other hand, Low doses of nitric oxide synthase inhibitors l-NAME and 7-NI alone or in combination with lower doses of 5-HT(3) receptor agonist enhanced the anticonvulsive Glucotrol Dose property of citalopram, while l-arginine (NO precursor) alone or in combination with tropisetron blocked the protective effect of citalopram. In summary, our findings demonstrate that 5-HT(3) receptor mediates the anticonvulsant properties of low doses of citalopram, whereas it seems that the proconvulsive effect is mostly mediated through the NO pathway and can be totally blocked by NOS inhibitors. This could propose a new approach toward finding the mechanism of citalopram activity, curtailing the adverse effects of citalopram and perhaps managing the convulsions as a vicious consequence of citalopram overdose.

Prolongation of the corrected QT interval (QTc) on the electrocardiography is an important clinical condition because it increases the risk of torsade de pointes, a medical emergency that can cause sudden cardiac death. QTc prolongation can be induced by many drugs, including antipsychotics Sporanox En Alcohol and tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs). Compared with TCAs, use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) was less likely to cause severe cardiac adverse effects. Escitalopram, one of the SSRIs, has shown significant antidepressant efficacy and well tolerability. Here, we present one female patient showing QTc prolongation induced by low-dose (5 mg/day) treatment of escitalopram for 2 days. The QTc returned to normal soon after discontinuation of escitalopram. Clinicians should be cautious about cardiac effects when using a SSRI, even in a low dose.

Recent neuroanatomical data suggest that the axons and terminals of serotonergic neurons of the dorsal and median raphe nuclei are morphologically and pharmacologically distinct. Here we attempted to establish a functional in vivo model of serotonergic terminals derived from these nuclei, and then carry out a preliminary comparison of their physiological and pharmacological properties. Brain microdialysis was used to monitor extracellular 5-hydroxytryptamine in the hippocampus (dorsal and median raphe innervation) and frontal cortex (preferential dorsal raphe innervation) of the anaesthetized rat. To distinguish 5-hydroxytryptamine released by terminals of dorsal raphe neurons from that released by median raphe neurons, one or other of these nuclei was stimulated electrically. Electrical stimulation of either the dorsal or median raphe nucleus evoked a release of 5-hydroxytryptamine in the hippocampus. Whereas stimulation of the dorsal raphe nucleus also released 5-hydroxytryptamine in the frontal cortex, stimulation of the median raphe nucleus did not. No release of 5-hydroxytryptamine was evoked when electrodes were located in regions bordering the dorsal raphe nucleus and the median raphe nucleus. The amounts of hippocampal 5-HT released by stimulation of the dorsal or median raphe nucleus were found to be similarly altered by a 5-hydroxytryptamine uptake inhibitor (citalopram) and calcium-free perfusion medium, and also by increasing stimulation frequency (2-10 Hz). Furthermore, the amount of 5-hydroxytryptamine released by electrical stimulation of either the dorsal raphe nucleus or median raphe nucleus was markedly reduced in rats pretreated with p-chloroamphetamine. In summary, our data show that electrical stimulation of the dorsal or median raphe nucleus releases 5-hydroxytryptamine in a regionally specific manner (hippocampus versus frontal cortex), suggesting that serotonergic nerve terminals of the dorsal and median raphe pathways were being activated selectively. Using this model, we found no differences in the responsiveness of dorsal and median raphe pathways to a specific set of physiological and pharmacological manipulations. In particular, our data suggest that the neurotoxic action of p-chloroamphetamine may not be targeted solely on serotonergic axons and terminals of the dorsal raphe nucleus but includes those of the median raphe nucleus.
