1. Fluvoxamine is a potent serotonin re-uptake inhibitor, with little or no noradrenergic or anticholinergic activity. 2. The results of three studies using an almost identical protocol with a prospectively randomized, double-blind design comparing fluvoxamine and chlorimipramine are presented. 3. In a population of 98 subjects suffering from a variety of depressive conditions, there was a marked improvement over four weeks in both groups. dosage was maintained between 150 and 300 mg per day. 4. There were no changes of clinical importance in vital signs, hematology or biochemistry, but pulse rates increased in the chlorimipramine group. 5. There were fewer concurrent signs and symptoms in the fluvoxamine group, especially those attributable to anticholinergic activity.

Untreated cLH rats showed significantly lower glucose and higher taurine concentrations compared to WT animals. Besides alterations on these metabolites, ECS increased glutamate in WT and cLH and choline in cLH rats. Moreover, correlations between glutamate and GABA concentrations with learned helpless behaviour were revealed.

The final results of treatment with 4 antidepressants (amitriptyline, imipramine, chlorimipramine and mianserine) in 80 patients with endogenous depression were analyzed with respect to their pre-treatment levels of urinary MHPG. The analysis revealed that MHPG measurements were of no practical value in predicting individual response to antidepressants.

The effects of chronic administration (28 days s.c. via osmotic minipumps) of the antidepressants phenelzine sulphate, desipramine hydrochloride and clomipramine hydrochloride (each at 10 mg/kg per day) on dopamine function have been measured in rats. Both phenelzine and desipramine attenuated the suppression of locomotor activity induced by apomorphine hydrochloride (0.05 mg/kg s.c. 15 min). Clomipramine did not affect the behavioural response to apomorphine. Analyses of brain tissue from these animals using the radioligand [3H]GBR 12935 revealed that there were no changes in dopamine uptake site density or affinity following the administration of phenelzine, desipramine or clomipramine. Analyses of brain monoamine oxidase activity and tricyclic levels were used to confirm the efficacy of the drug administration protocol. These data indicate that changes in dopamine uptake site density do not mediate antidepressant-induced changes in behavioural responses to apomorphine.

Intraperitoneal injection of a mixture of collagenase (300 U) and amitriptyline (Laroxyl*, 3 mg) induce no lesions in contrast with the severe effects of collagenase alone. Also, a complete resistance to intraperitoneal collagenase injection is observed when preceded by 3 intramuscular injections of the same mixture (associated with Freund's incomplete adjuvant). This is due to the development of collagenase antibodies, as demonstrated by nephelometry and immunodiffusion. These facts show that amitriptyline neutralizes the enzymatic properties of collagenase, without alterring its antigenicity. We propose to call this new substance anacollagenase. Such a phenomenon has never been observed with a drug. However we got identical results with other tricyclic depressants (clomipramine, imipramine, doxepine, iprindole). The mechanism of the transformation of collagenase into anacollagenase is not yet explained.

This small, nonrandomized medicated sample analyzed under non-double-blind conditions shows no difference in the efficacy of clomipramine and sulpiride under post hoc analysis. Rather, the side effects that occurred in patients on clomipramine indicate a more frequent use of SSRI to increase compliance as regards medication intake.

A developmental study has been made of spontaneous neuronal activity within the pontine reticular formation (giant cell field: FTG) of the rat between one week and one month after birth. Through day 14, the recorded FTG neurons discharged more frequently during quite sleep (QS) than was generally true in older animals. In addition, they were active to the same extent during active-sleep (AS) as during waking-with-movements (AW). In contrast, most of the cells recorded from day 15 on were considerably more active during AS and AW, relative to the QS level, than had hitherto been the case. This new class of neurons, in turn, fell into two sub-groups, one of which was most active during AW while the other was more active during AS. Clomipramine selectively suppressed AS along with the neuronal activity patterns associated with it, and in many cases the QS firing level was even lower than it had been prior to the injection. It is concluded that FTG unit activity is an excellent monitor for controlling the effectiveness of experimental manipulations of AS but is probably not involved in its generation.

We have developed and validated a high content screening approach that can be used in any ordinarily equipped cell biology laboratory employing exclusively freely available open-source software in order to find novel modulators of adhesion and cell spreading. The versatility and adjustability of the whole screening method will enable not only centers specialized in high-throughput screens but most importantly also labs not routinely employing screens in their daily work routine to investigate the effects of a wide range of different compounds or siRNAs on adhesion and adhesion-modulating molecules.

An isocratic, high-performance liquid chromatography method has been developed for simultaneous determination of the tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine and six metabolites: desmethylclomipramine, 2- and 8-hydroxy-clomipramine, 2- and 8-hydroxydesmethylclomipramine and didesmethyl-clomipramine in plasma and urine. In addition, clomipramine N-oxide was determined in the unconjugated fraction of urine. The method is based on a three-step liquid-liquid extraction, the chromatographic eluent was 30% acetonitrile and 70% aqueous sodium perchlorate solution, pH 2.5, and the UV detection was performed at 220 nm. The method was applied to the analysis of samples followed by oral doses of clomipramine to patients and healthy volunteers.

Infusion of lipid emulsion resulted in greater survival in this rabbit model of intravenous clomipramine toxicity. Plasma exchange performed in conjunction with administration of lipid emulsion failed to result in significant extracorporeal clomipramine elimination. Intravascular lipid sequestration of clomipramine appears an inadequate sole explanation for the beneficial effects of lipid emulsion.

anafranil ocd reviews

We report the clinical and therapeutic features of three patients with an obsessive-compulsive syndrome that emerged during the course of panic disorder. The DSM-IV criteria for panic disorder places central attention on the patient's phobic responses to the panic attacks and their perceived consequences. These phobic responses may develop into a syndrome that closely resembles obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) but typically responds to conventional anti-panic approaches. Our cases suggest that patients with OCD should be probed for an underlying panic disorder. This 'panic disorder-related subtype of OCD' may be associated with an excellent treatment response and increased rates of remission.

[3H]6-Nitroquipazine is a new, suitable radioligand for studying the uptake system for 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT; serotonin). In the present study, inhibition by drugs of the binding of [3H]6-nitroquipazine to uptake sites for 5-HT in the cerebral cortex of the rat was investigated. The inhibition of 5-HT and several inhibitors of the uptake of 5-HT (paroxetine, clomipramine, citalopram, Z-norzimelidine, fluoxetine, imipramine, desipramine and 5-methoxytryptoline) against the binding of [3H]6-nitroquipazine to membranes from the cortex of the rat were the same and competition curves indicated a single population of binding sites. The addition of 5-HT and the tricyclic inhibitors of the uptake of 5-HT, imipramine, clomipramine and desipramine, all produced changes in the apparent dissociation constant (Kd), without changes in the number of binding sites (Bmax). Also, the non-tricyclic inhibitors of the uptake of 5-HT, paroxetine, citalopram, fluoxetine and Z-norzimelidine, and 5-methoxytryptoline, all produced changes in Kd values without changes in the Bmax. These results suggest that all the drugs used in this experiment exhibited competitive interactions with the binding of [3H]6-nitroquipazine to uptake sites for 5-HT in the brain of the rat. These drugs may bind to common binding sites, which are likely to represent the substrate recognition sites for the uptake of 5-HT.

Despite the importance of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)(2C) (serotonin) receptors in the control of depressive states, actions of antidepressants at these receptors remain poorly characterized. This issue was addressed both in human embryonic kidney (HEK)-293 cells coexpressing unedited human 5-HT(2CINI) receptors and Galpha(q) protein and in cultured mouse cortical neurons. Indicative of constitutive activity, the inverse agonist SB206,553 decreased basal inositol phosphate (IP) production in HEK-293 cells. The tetracyclic antidepressants mirtazapine and mianserin likewise suppressed basal IP formation. Conversely, the tricyclics amitriptyline and clomipramine, the m-chlorophenylpiperazine derivatives trazodone and nefazodone, and the 5-HT reuptake inhibitors fluoxetine and citalopram were inactive alone, although they blocked 5-HT-induced IP production. Inverse agonist actions of 5-methyl-1-(3-pyridylcarbamoyl)-1,2,3,5-tetrahydropyrrolo[2,3-f]indole (SB206,553) and mirtazapine were abolished by the neutral antagonist 6-chloro-5-methyl-1-[6-(2-methylpyridin-3-yloxy)pyridin-3-ylcarbamoyl]indoline (SB242,084), which was inactive alone. As assessed by confocal microscopy and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, prolonged treatment of HEK-293 cells with SB206,553, mirtazapine, or mianserin, but not the other antidepressants, enhanced cell surface expression of 5-HT(2C) receptors: 5-HT-induced IP production was also increased, and both these actions were blocked by SB242,084. Cortical neurons were shown by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction to predominantly express constitutively active 5-HT(2C) receptor isoforms. Prolonged pretreatment with SB206,553 or mirtazapine triggered an otherwise absent 5-HT-induced elevation in cytosolic Ca(2+) concentrations. SB242,084, which was inactive alone, abolished these effects of SB206,553 and mirtazapine. In conclusion, the tetracyclic antidepressants mirtazapine and mianserin, but not other clinically established antidepressants, suppress constitutive activity at recombinant and native 5-HT(2C) receptors. The clinical significance of inverse agonist versus neutral antagonist properties both during and after drug administration will be of interest to elucidate.

An attempt was made to measure the effects of depressive illness and of clomipramine (Anafranil) therapy in doses of 30 mg and 75 mg daily on sexual appetite and performance. A special questionnaire was devised to gather information on sexual habits before illness, during illness and following treatment. It proved difficult to differentiate between the beneficial effects of recovery from depression and the possible adverse drug effects on sexual activity. Two patients dropped out of the study because of supposed sexual side-effects--a male with ejaculatory difficulties and a female with orgasmic impotence. Fifty-four patients completed the sexual questionnaire and a four-week course of clomipramine. There were nineteen males and thirty-five females. Sixty-eight per cent of males and 57% of females had their 'sex life' impaired by depressive illness. Coital rate was decreased and depression interfered with performance and satisfaction. Clomipramine therapy seemed to have advantageous and disadvantageous effects. The advantageous effects were probably associated with improvement in depressive illness. There was evidence that clomipramine had an adverse effect sexually in 26% of males and 14% of females. The effect was dose-related in females.

Depressed patients who had responded to either cognitive therapy, pharmacotherapy or the 2 treatments combined, were followed up retrospectively over a period of 2 years. There were significantly more relapses at 6 months in the pharmacotherapy group compared to the combined treatment group and the 2 cognitive therapy groups together. The number of individuals who relapsed at some point over the 2 years was significantly higher in the pharmacotherapy group than in either of the cognitive therapy groups. When hospital patients were considered separately, significantly more patients in the pharmacotherapy group relapsed over the 2 years compared to the 2 cognitive therapy groups combined. Methodological problems of naturalistic follow-up studies are discussed and the prophylactic potential of cognitive therapy is discussed relative to continuation drug treatment.

To explore the relationship between obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and affective disorder, patients with OCD were studied using a series of biological markers which have been previously reported to be abnormal in patients with affective illness. These "markers" included the dexamethasone suppression test, sleep electroencephalography, the plasma growth hormone response to clonidine, and platelet 3H-imipramine binding. Results from each of these studies suggested similarities between patients with obsessional disorder and those with affective illness. Many of these biological abnormalities were evident in obsessional patients who did not manifest depressive symptoms. As a buy anafranil tricyclic antidepressant, clomipramine, has been found to reduce obsessional symptoms, the relationship between these "affective-like" laboratory findings and the clinical response to clomipramine was studied in a subgroup of OCD patients. Preliminary results suggest that none of the markers studied predict clomipramine response.

Longitudinal investigations of basal prolactin (PRL) and prolactin concentrations following thyrotopin-releasing hormone (TRH) stimulation (delta PRL) were conducted in 17 patients with major depressive disorder and healthy subjects. The patients were being treated with either clomipramine or maprotiline. Both basal and delta PRL increased significantly after clinical response during treatment with both drugs. However, these increases in basal and delta PRL were independent of each other. Surprisingly, elevations of basal PRL were significantly greater in responders than in nonresponders, whereas those in delta PRL showed no corresponding significant difference. These results suggest that the two drugs stimulate basal and delta PRL by different mechanisms. The increases in basal prolactin levels found in responders may possibly be due to weaker inhibition of prolactin due to "down-regulated" beta adrenergic receptors and/or enhanced activity of supersensitive serotonergic receptors. Neither basal PRL nor delta PRL proved to be a predictor of therapy response. The intraindividual retest reliabilities of both basal and delta PRL in healthy buy anafranil subjects was so good that a single blood sample would seem to be sufficient for investigating most issues involving PRL in psychiatric patients.

A double-blind, randomized trial of oral vs intravenous clomipramine hydrochloride pulse-loading dosing regimens was conducted. After a two-week drug-free assessment period, 22 inpatients with a diagnosis of major depressive disorder were given either an evening infusion of 150 mg of clomipramine hydrochloride and placebo tablets or 150 mg of oral clomipramine hydrochloride and an isotonic saline infusion. Twenty-four hours later, this procedure was repeated using a dose of 200 mg of clomipramine hydrochloride. Patients received no further medication over the next five days. The mean Hamilton Depression Rating Scale score for all patients, five days after pulse loading, had dropped by 35% (range, buy anafranil 13.3% to -82.4%). This improvement was significant, as was the amelioration in the Raskin Severity for Depression Scale and the Beck Depression Inventory scores. Although the bioavailability of parenteral clomipramine was greater, there were no significant differences in either efficacy or side effects between the two groups. Pronounced early improvements in severe depressive symptoms may be achieved via loading dose regimens with clomipramine in the absence of continuous treatment.

The aim of this study was to examine the effects of tricyclic antidepressants on responses of mechanosensitive afferent fibers innervating the rat colon. A total of 53 fibers in the decentralized S1 dorsal root were studied. The effects of the non-specific monoamine reuptake inhibitor imipramine (IMI), the noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor desipramine (DES), and the serotonin reuptake inhibitor clomipramine (CLO) were tested on responses of 22 mechanosensitive afferent fibers to noxious colorectal distension (CRD; 80 mmHg). Cumulative doses of 16 mg/kg of IMI, DES and of CLO reduced responses to noxious CRD to a mean 20%, 22% and 46% of control, respectively. The mean inhibitory doses of the three antidepressants did not differ significantly. Inhibitory effects were independent of potential effects on neurotransmitter reuptake: the effects of IMI and DES were not blocked by the adrenoreceptor antagonist phentolamine, and the effects of IMI and CLO were not affected by the serotonin receptor antagonist metergoline. Attenuation of afferent nerve activity was not mimicked by the anticholinergic glycopyrrolate; the cholinesterase inhibitor neostigmine did not attenuate the effect of IMI on responses to noxious CRD. Interestingly, the opioid receptor antagonist naloxone partially reversed the effects of IMI, and the NMDA receptor channel blocker MK-801 enhanced the inhibitory effects of DES and CLO. These results document that responses of mechanosensitive pelvic nerve afferent fibers to noxious CRD are significantly attenuated by tricyclic antidepressants, a peripheral action buy anafranil that may contribute to the beneficial effects of tricyclic antidepressants in treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.

We developed a technique based on nonaqueous capillary electrophoresis and laser-based thermo-optical absorbance detection to assay five antidepressants with similar structures and mass-to-charge ratios. A mixture of methanol and acetonitrile with ammonium acetate was essential to achieve baseline resolution of these compounds. We investigated the effects of ammonium buy anafranil acetate concentration, temperature, applied voltage, and capillary length on separation efficiency. The nonaqueous capillary electrophoresis and laser-based thermo-optical absorbance detection technique was used to study the metabolism of amitriptyline by Cunninghamella elegans. Sample preparation procedures were simplified for fast screening of the parent drug and its metabolites. Reproducible electropherograms were obtained from replicate cultures of C. elegans growing in the presence of amitriptyline.

Clomipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant medication widely used in Western Europe. Its pharmacokinetics have been studied essentially in healthy volunteers. By combining published information obtained during observational studies, it has been possible to derive a fairly precise picture of the behaviour of both parent compound and main metabolite (demethyl-clomipramine) in humans. Clomipramine can be compared with amitriptyline or imipramine so far as its physicochemical properties are concerned. As a consequence, its pharmacokinetic profile is also similar to that observed for these 2 drugs. Clomipramine is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, but undergoes an important first-pass metabolism to demethyl-clomipramine which is pharmacologically active and participates in both therapeutic and unwanted effects. Protein binding is high, and the apparent volume of distribution is very large (i.e. greater than 1000L). After reaching the systemic circulation, clomipramine is further biotransformed into demethyl-clomipramine, and both active principles are hydroxylated to metabolites which are further conjugated before being excreted in urine. Hydroxylation of parent drug and metabolite is under polymorphic genetic control by the same cytochrome P450 as debrisoquine and sparteine. The apparent elimination half-life of clomipramine is about 24h and that of demethyl-clomipramine, 96h. Accordingly, the time to reach steady-state for both active moieties is in general around 3 weeks. Various pathological or environmental factors influence the behaviour of clomipramine and demethyl-clomipramine. Patients genetically deficient in hydroxylation accumulate demethyl-clomipramine at high concentrations that can produce serious side effects and/or nonresponse. The same is true for the coadministration of neuroleptics, in particular phenothiazines. Smoking induces demethylation, whereas long term alcohol intake appears to reduce this metabolic pathway. Finally, age usually diminishes both demethylation and hydroxylation, leading to a lower daily dose of clomipramine in most elderly patients. Studies relating blood concentrations of clomipramine and demethyl-clomipramine are conflicting. However, analysis of the available information indicates buy anafranil that blood concentrations lower than 150 micrograms/L are usually associated with nonresponse, whereas those above 450 micrograms/L seldom lead to an improvement in the efficacy of therapy. As a consequence clomipramine, like the other tricyclics, is an antidepressant with a fairly narrow therapeutic range. This property, combined with a high interindividual variability, makes this class of drugs ideal candidates for blood concentration monitoring.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is emerging very clearly as a serotonin specific illness. The evidence for this comes from a variety of clinical sources. Firstly the efficacy of 5-HT uptake inhibitors, especially clomipramine, is consistent and strong. Secondly clomipramine has not merely been found to be effective against placebo in 9 placebo controlled studies, it is also found to be more effective in some studies than reference tricyclic antidepressants and monoamine oxidase inhibitors. In other studies tricyclic antidepressants do not appear to be better than placebo. The lack of efficacy of general antidepressants, neuroleptics and benzodiazepines supports the specificity of the serotonin effect. Thirdly the evidence of the efficacy of clomipramine in OCD without concomitant depression reported by Montgomery 1980 and supported by other buy anafranil studies suggests that 5-HT uptake inhibitors have a specifically anti-obsessional effect. The lack of response of depressive symptoms in OCD to other antidepressants suggests that these depressive symptoms are integral to OCD and will only respond when the OCD is treated. Many of the studies found efficacy for 5-HT uptake inhibitors compared with placebo despite both groups being treated with concomitant behaviour therapy. This argues either for behaviour therapy being relatively ineffective or for there being a synergistic effect with the 5-HT uptake inhibitor which is more likely. Results from studies with selective serotonergic probes with a worsening of OCD symptoms in response to the 5-HT1A agonist, m-chlorophenyl piperazine, add support to the serotonergic hypothesis of OCD but further investigation is needed.

Significant difference was shown in comparison of Y-BOCS score between the two groups from the end of the 4th week of treatment (P < Zanaflex Cost 0.05), indicating the efficacy in the tested group was better than that in the control group. Moreover, the occurrence of adverse reaction was higher in the control group than that in the tested group.

Behavioral and biochemical effects of repeated immobilization stress were determined in male Wistar rats. The influence of acute or repeated administration of antidepressant drugs on these effects of stress were also evaluated. It was found that repeated stress (immobilization 3 h/2 degrees C/4 days or various stressors/8 days) reduced basal locomotor activity of rats and prolonged immobility Imodium Capsules time in Porsolt's despair test. Antidepressant drugs (desmethylimipramine, imipramine, amitriptyline, clomipramine, mianserine), given acutely, restored basal locomotor activity of stressed rats to control level. Desmethylimipramine, imipramine and amitriptyline reduced immobility time in Porsolt's test similarly in control as in stressed rats. However clomipramine, mianserine and trazodone were effective in this test only in stressed rats. Imipramine given for 4 or 8 days (1 h before the stressor) normalized basal locomotor activity. Repeated (for 8 days) various stressors decelerated utilization of noradrenaline (NA) and dopamine (DA) in the brain. Imipramine given once a day for 8 days (1 h before the stressor) normalized brain utilization of catecholamines (CA). It was proposed that depression of basal motility and reduction of CA utilization in the brain induced by repeated stress may be counter acted by antidepressant drugs.

The tricyclic antidepressant drugs (TCAs) are commonly used in the treatment of chronic, especially neuropathic, pain. We evaluated their possible effect on a new model of neuropathic pain-related behaviour induced by ligatures tied Detrol Tablet loosely around the common sciatic nerve. The effects of 3 TCAs with different monoaminergic spectra (clomipramine, amitriptyline and desipramine) were assessed 2 weeks after surgery, the time of the maximum hyperalgesia, on a 'phasic' test (vocalization threshold to paw pressure) and on a 'tonic' test (score of the spontaneous pain-related behaviour). TCAs were acutely (0.5 and 2 mg/kg, i.v.) and 'chronically' injected (7 injections, once every half-life of the drug: 0.75 and 1.5 mg/kg, s.c., for clomipramine and 1.5 and 3 mg/kg, s.c., for amitriptyline and desipramine). Acutely injected clomipramine and amitriptyline (0.5 mg/kg, i.v.) and desipramine (2 mg/kg, i.v.) showed an antinociceptive naloxone-reversible effect, assessed by an increase in the vocalization threshold to the paw pressure test and, for amitriptyline, by a decrease in tonic pain scores. Chronically injected TCAs induced a significant and progressive increase in the vocalization threshold with a time course parallel to that of their suspected plasma or nerve tissue levels: (i) a regular increase of scores for the first 3-4 injections, (ii) then a plateau until the last injection, and (iii) a progressive decrease with a dose-dependent duration of the effect, longer than that obtained with a corresponding acute dose. This study showed that in this new model of mononeuropathy, acutely and chronically injected TCAs induce an antinociceptive effect and suggested that their analgesic action could be related to the monoaminergic spectrum of the drug in relation to the opiate systems.

The anticholinergic effect of atropine, imipramine, clomipramine and metapramine was evaluated on oxotremorine induced trembling in the mouse as well as on contractions of the isolated guinea pig ileum induced by electrical stimulation of the mesenteric plexus. The ED 50 and IC 50 which expressed the anticholinergic activity of these substances, were found to be identifically distributed for both methods. Activity, in decreasing order was found to be: atropine much greater than imipramine greater than clomipramine greater than metapramine. There was a good correlation between results from the two methods (r = 0.97). Atarax 25mg Tablets The method using the stimulated guinea pig ileum would therefore seem suitable for characterisation of potential anticholinergic activity of a molecule.

After a review of a pharmacokinetic interaction between tricyclic antidepressants (TCA) and fluoxetine the authors report their own data. They confirm the existence of an interaction of TCA with fluoxetine, in clinical practice, but the fluoxetine was not associated in all cases with a marked increase of TCA plasma levels. The increase appeared especially high with clomipramine (n = 4) and imipramine (n = 3), and lower or dose-dependent Costo Sporanox Capsule with amitriptyline (n = 4). The pharmacokinetic change did not induce side effects in the patients, even when the total TCA plasma level increased to 965 (clomipramine) or 785 (imipramine) ng/ml. The authors then discuss the clinical implication and the possible mechanism of action.

A method with adequate sensitivity (to 0.50-0.75 mg/ml) for single-dose pharmacokinetic studies which utilizes gas-liquid chromatography with nitrogen-phosphorous detection for tricyclic antidepressants (imipramine, desipramine, amitriptyline, nortriptyline, and doxepin) is described. A basic (pH 13) extraction with acid back-wash and subsequent basic reextraction is used for plasma Aciphex Maximum Dosage sample preparation. Standard curves, using clomipramine as the internal standard, are linear for concentrations from 1 to 200 ng/ml for all tricyclic antidepressants. Applicability of the method is demonstrated by a pharmacokinetic study in a normal volunteer who received 12.5 mg imipramine hydrochloride i.v.

The neuroendocrinological examinations were performed in mentally retarded 7-year-old boy with severe self Cymbalta Medicine -injurious behavior (SIB). The thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and prolactine responses to TRH showed lower in the basal and peak levels compared with those in the age matched control group. It is suggested that there may be an enhanced dopaminergic activity. The effects of naloxone, clomipramine and sulpiride on the frequency of SIB were investigated in this case. The frequency of SIB was reduced by sulpiride; a dopamine antagonist. These data suggest dopaminergic supersensitivity and hypothalamic dysregulation as a mechanism underlying SIB.

Although TCAs have been prescribed for several decades, their own teratogenic potential to cause structural defects remains undetermined. However, some signals seem to exist suggesting that prenatal clomipramine exposure may increase the risk of cardiac defects. Moreover, TCAs have been associated with the risk of prenatal antidepressant exposure syndrome. Among TCAs, clomipramine seems to be associated with more severe and prolonged neonatal symptoms. However, some findings of this syndrome reported with SSRI use, Leflunomide Arava Medication such as persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, necrotizing enterocolitis and QT prolongation, have not been described after TCA exposure. Hence, current evidence suggests that, as a group, a preference of TCAs over SSRIs in early pregnancy is not justified. In contrast, there appears to be a small gain in safety if TCAs (with the exception of clomipramine) are used in late pregnancy. Among this class of antidepressants, nortriptyline seems to be safest medication for use during breastfeeding.

12 male Sprague-Dawley rats were given chlorimipramine through gastric sound at a daily dose of 150 mg/Kg body weight for two weeks. From the rats, killed at the end of the treatment, were collected lung fragments, some of which were examined by electron microscopy and others by light microscopy, following particular fixation and colouring procedures. The light microscopy revealed that many alveoli contained numerous cells, large and clear, the cytoplasma of which contained vacuoles of different dimensions, for which these cells appeared from " foam cells". Besides, they reacted positively to the method of Baker and were intensely coloured in dark grey, after fixation with osmium tetroxide-natrium iodide. The ultrastructural examination evidentiated two main types of cells: the first comprised large, round cells, classifiable as alveolar macrophages while the second type comprised cells that were classifiable as type II alveolar cells, in which, apart from important mitochondrial modifications, numerous vacuoles of different sizes were detectable. The AA. consider the alterations of the type II alveolar cells as a characteristic morphological aspect of phospholipidosis from chlorimipramine.

In case 1, plasma moclobemide was 2.8 mg/L with 1.8 mg/L clomipramide; in case 2, 18 mg/L; in case 3 60.9 mg/L and 4.6 mg/L 12 hours later. None of the patients showed serious effects during 24 hours of observation. Plasma moclobemide at 10 to 30 times therapeutic was not associated with major toxic effects. Moclobemide seems to be considerably less toxic than tricyclic antidepressants.

Treatment with fluoxetine hydrochloride was compared with treatment with clomipramine hydrochloride in two groups of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder using two different experimental designs. In the first group of 11 patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder studied using a randomized, double-blind, crossover design, treatment with fluoxetine for 10 weeks was found to produce therapeutic effects similar to treatment with clomipramine for 10 weeks. There were significantly fewer total side effects reported during fluoxetine than clomipramine treatment. Drug tapering and placebo substitution in the 4-week crossover interval phase led to substantial relapses in obsessive-compulsive disorder symptoms and depression. Furthermore, responses to the second drug took as long to occur as responses to the first drug, although both drugs are thought to act by a common mechanism, serotonin uptake inhibition. A second group of 21 patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder that had been previously stabilized on clomipramine treatment with at least partial benefit were crossed over to fluoxetine treatment in a double-blind fashion. After 10 weeks of fluoxetine administration, most patients manifested behavioral rating scores of obsessive-compulsive disorder and depressive symptoms that were comparable with precrossover ratings completed during clomipramine treatment. A significant exacerbation in obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression ratings as well as a similar lag in therapeutic efficacy were also noted in this second cohort of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Platelet 5-HT concentrations were reduced 95% during both clomipramine and fluoxetine treatment periods. These results suggest that fluoxetine may represent a viable alternative to clomipramine in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder, although further studies with larger sample sizes are needed.
