anafranil 25 mg

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.

anafranil ocd review

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.

Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy. The hypocretin/orexin deficiency is likely to be the key to its pathophysiology in most of cases although the cause of human narcolepsy remains elusive. Acting on a specific genetic background, an autoimmune process targeting hypocretin neurons in response to yet unknown environmental factors is the most probable hypothesis in most cases of human narcolepsy with cataplexy. Although narcolepsy presents one of the tightest associations with a specific human leukocyte antigen (HLA) (DQB1*0602), there is strong evidence that non-HLA genes also confer susceptibility. In addition to a point mutation in the prepro-hypocretin gene discovered in an atypical case, a few polymorphisms in monoaminergic and immune-related genes have been reported associated with narcolepsy. The treatment of narcolepsy has evolved significantly over the last few years. Available treatments include stimulants for hypersomnia with the quite recent widespread use of modafinil, antidepressants for cataplexy, and gamma-hydroxybutyrate for both symptoms. Recent pilot open trials with intravenous immunoglobulins appear an effective treatment of cataplexy if applied at early stages of narcolepsy. Finally, the discovery of hypocretin deficiency might open up new treatment perspectives.

We found no strong evidence that fluvoxamine was either superior or inferior to any other antidepressants in terms of efficacy and tolerability in the acute phase treatment of depression. However, differing side effect profiles were evident. Based on these findings, we conclude that clinicians should focus on practical or clinically relevant considerations, including these differences in side effect profiles.

The serotonin syndrome is frequently characterized by minor neurologic manifestations that regress rapidly (such as confusion, tremor, ...). Many medications including tricyclic antidepressants, serotonin reuptake inhibitors, tryptophan and the association of monoamine oxidase inhibitors together with a serotoninergic agent have been implicated in this syndrome. In certain cases, and for poorly understood reasons, clinical manifestations can include circulatory collapse, malignant hyperthermia, convulsions and rhabdomyolysis. These forms are often fatal. Treatment, other than the withdrawal of the offending drug, is symptomatic. Dialysis may be of value in withdrawing the drug from the circulatory system. We report a patient with the serotonin syndrome of favorable outcome due to an overdose of moclobemide and clomipramine.

anafranil user reviews

In platelets of normal volunteers taking chlorimipramine (50 mg/day) for one week, the saturable uptake of [3H]5HT was fully inhibited at day 8, but returned to control values at day 15. The Bmax of [3H]imipramine binding was decreased by 65% at day 8 and remained significantly below control values at day 15. If the present findings can be extrapolated to other antidepressants, the reported decreases in [3H]imipramine binding in depression may partly reflect residual treatment effects. It cannot be excluded that, in depression, the platelet [3H]imipramine receptor already is down-regulated maximally which would preclude a further down-regulation due to antidepressant drug therapy.

In recent years, there has been rapid progress in the pathophysiology, diagnostic methods and therapeutics of sleep apnea syndrome (SAS). In this article, we present our findings in these fields for the past several years. Recently, we have been able to use ultralow-field magnetic resonance (MR) fluoroscopy to visualize the upper airway for extended periods of time. The severity of SAS should be evaluated by precise history taking, physical and laboratory examination and polysomnography together with SpO2 and esophageal pressure monitoring. Treatment strategy includes multidisciplinary approaches, life style modification and suitable treatment choice, such as CPAP, dental appliance, upper airway surgery, pharmacological agents.

The tricyclic antidepressants have previously been shown to exert activity against glioma cells in vitro. Initial studies in cell lines suggested that this might extend to melanoma cells. We have therefore conducted a study in primary cell cultures from metastatic cutaneous melanoma deposits using a well established ATP-based tumour chemosensitivity assay to confirm and extend these findings. Two cell lines and eight primary cell cultures from metastatic melanoma deposits were exposed to three tricyclic drugs, amitriptyline, nortriptyline and clomipramine, at concentrations ranging from 200 to 6.25 µmol/l in the ATP-based tumour chemosensitivity assay. All three drugs showed activity, although nortriptyline was more active than clomipramine or amitriptyline in both cell lines and primary cell cultures, with an IC50 of 9, 27 and 33 µmol/l, respectively. Tricyclic agents show activity against melanoma in vitro. This could be related to the lysosomal effects based on their cationic amphiphilic properties, or effects at the mitochondrial membrane.

A male patient aged 43 years, suffering from symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), such as washing hands and feet frequently and checking documents compulsively, had received intensive pharmacotherapeutic and behavior therapy. Although the administration of anxiolytic drugs and/or clomipramine did not show curative effects, a combination of clomipramine and risperidone showed much greater effect in improving these symptoms.

Obsessional states show an average point prevalence of 1%-3% and a lifetime prevalence of 2%-2.5%. Most treatment-seeking patients with obsessions continue to experience significant symptoms after 2 years of prospective follow-up. A significant burden of impairment, distress, and comorbidity characterize the course of the illness, leading to an increased need for a better understanding of the nature and management of this condition. This review aims to give a representation of the current pharmacological and psychotherapeutic strategies used in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Antidepressants (clomipramine and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) are generally the first-line choice used to handle obsessional states, showing good response rates and long-term positive outcomes. About 40% of patients fail to respond to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. So far, additional pharmacological treatment strategies have been shown to be effective, ie, administration of high doses of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, as well as combinations of different drugs, such as dopamine antagonists, are considered efficacious and well tolerated strategies in terms of symptom remission and side effects. Psychotherapy also plays an important role in the management of obsessive-compulsive disorder, being effective for a wide range of symptoms, and many studies have assessed its long-term efficacy, especially when added to appropriate pharmacotherapy. In this paper, we also give a description of the clinical and psychological features likely to characterize patients refractory to treatment for this illness, with the aim of highlighting the need for greater attention to more patient-oriented management of the disease.

Studies investigating a possible relationship between the plasma concentration of tricyclic antidepressants and clinical response have measured only the tertiary and secondary amine forms of these drugs. The present study shows that the hydroxy metabolites of tricyclic antidepressants might also be active. Hydroxylated imipramine, desipramine, chlorimipramine, and nortriptyline inhibit the uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin into synaptosomes to the same extent as do their parent compounds. Hydroxylated nortriptyline and imipramine reverse or prevent reserpine-induced motor retardation and ptosis. Following chronic imipramine, significant steady-state concentrations of unconjugated hydroxylated metabolites are present in rat tissues including the cerebrospinal fluid. Accounting for steady-state concentrations of hydroxylated metabolites of tricyclic antidepressants in man may help to clarify whether there is a relationship between active drug concentration and clinical effect.

Notwithstanding the emerging literature on comorbidity between obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and bipolar disorder, relatively few systematic data exist on the clinical characteristics of this interface and its treatment. The aim of the present study is to address this challenge as it appears in a setting of routine clinical practice.

Tricyclic antidepressants (TCA) are well-known xerogenic drugs, while antidepressants such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) are considered less xerogenic. The antimuscarinic effect of the TCAs has been considered to be the principal mechanism causing a dry mouth. Although the muscarinic receptor is commonly targeted by xerogenic pharmaceuticals, the salivation reflex arc may be affected at other levels as well. We currently wondered whether or not antidepressants exert an inhibition of the salivary reflex not only at the glandular level but at a central level as well. In this study, the effects of a TCA (clomipramine), a SSRI (citalopram) and a serotonin-noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor (SNRI; venlafaxine) were examined on reflex- (0.5M citric acid applied on the tongue) and methacholine-evoked salivary secretion. While all three compounds inhibited citric acid-evoked secretion (-40 to -60% at 5mg/kg i.v. of the antidepressants), only clomipramine inhibited methacholine-evoked secretion (-30% at 5mg/kg i.v.). On the contrary, both citalopram and venlafaxine increased the methacholine-evoked secretion (+44 to 49%). This was particularly obvious for the salivary protein output (>200%). In the presence of α- and β-adrenoceptor antagonists, the citalopram- and venlafaxine-induced increases were reduced. Thus, antidepressants irrespective of type may exert xerogenic effects by inhibiting the salivary reflex in the central nervous system. However, while TCAs may also hamper the secretory response by antimuscarinic effects, the SSRI and the SNRI groups of pharmaceuticals seem to lack this additional xerogenic mechanism indicating a better therapeutic profile and better opportunities for pharmacological treatment of drug-induced xerostomia.

Outpatients (n = 150) with MDD were randomized to receive clomipramine or a control treatment. Patients completed the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (Ham-D) and the Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire (TPQ) prior to treatment initiation, and then again after at least 8 weeks of treatment. Using structural equation modeling, we evaluated a 'mediation model' in which change in HA is a mechanism of depression change in response to clomipramine, and a 'complication model' in which reduction in HA is a by-product of depression change.

Moclobemide, a novel benzamide, is a reversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase-A (RIMA). It has been extensively evaluated in the treatment of a wide spectrum of depressive disorders. Comparative studies have shown that the drug is more effective than placebo and as effective as other antidepressants. In terms of efficacy, moclobemide offers no more benefits than do existing agents. On the other hand, moclobemide is better tolerated than tricyclic antidepressants and, unlike irreversible monoamine oxidase inhibitors, has a much lower propensity to cause a 'cheese reaction' (a potentially fatal syndrome caused by an interaction with tyramine-rich foods). These are significant clinical benefits, particularly in elderly patients. Furthermore, moclobemide lacks significant effects on psychomotor performance and cognitive function, has few clinically important drug interactions and is safe on overdose. The drug has a relatively short plasma elimination half-life, a property that allows a change to an alternative agent within 24 hours in cases of nonresponse. Since it is well tolerated, therapeutic dosages can often be achieved from the onset of treatment. These benefits need to be considered against the potential risks of moclobemide therapy. To date, the most significant hazards of therapy appear to arise from drug interactions with clomipramine or selective serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) reuptake inhibitors, where the occurrence of the serotonin syndrome is potentially fatal. Similarly, in preclinical tests moclobemide has been shown to potentiate the effects of pethidine (meperidine) and dextropropoxyphene, so that combined use of moclobemide is a useful addition to the therapeutic agents used for depressive disorders.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The principal components analysis identified five factors that explained 65.5% of variance in outcome: symmetry/ordering, hoarding, contamination/cleaning, aggressive/checking, and sexual/religious obsessions. Serotonin reuptake inhibitors were significantly superior to placebo on all outcome measures. Initial severity of OCD was related to greater posttreatment severity of OCD. Higher scores on the hoarding dimension predicted poorer outcome following treatment with serotonin reuptake inhibitors, after control for baseline severity. No predictors of placebo response were identified. Exclusion of clomipramine did not modify the overall results, suggesting a cross-serotonin reuptake inhibitor effect.

anafranil 35 mg

A 27-y-old male was admitted deeply comatosed 5-6 h after taking approximately 15 g clomipramine. The prominent feature of the case was a biphasic course of clomipramine and desmethylclomipramine serum concentrations, possibly caused by delayed drug absorption. Clinically, 2 serious episodes requiring mechanical ventilation and aggressive pressor agent infusions occurred as the serum concentrations declined. However, the severe adult respiratory distress syndrome--related inflammatory process that required 4 w of intensive care may also be an explanation, although blood cultures were negative and neither liver nor renal functions were severely compromised.

Of 842 patients 89.9% received at least one psychotropic drug and 67.6% a combination of at least two psychotropic drugs. The drug groups prescribed most often were antidepressants (78.0%), antipsychotics (46.7%), and tranquilizers (19.7%). In 58.0% of all cases selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) were used as antidepressants, followed by tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs, 17.8%), mainly clomipramine (10.9%). Second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) were administered in 37.8% of all cases, first-generation antipsychotics (FGAs) in 13.7%. While the use over time significantly increased for psychotropic drugs, antidepressants, antipsychotics, tranquilizers, SSRIs and SGAs, it remained stable for FGAs and decreased for TCAs.

Erythromelalgia is an acrosyndrome characterized by paroxysmal manifestations associating erythema, local sensations of warmth and pain which improve with exposure to cold. Childhood forms, exceptional and usually primary, are quite severe and particularly resistant to treatment. The search for a causal agent is most often negative and the pathogenesis remains to be determined. We report a case of erythromelalgia observed in a 4-year-old girl, her father and her buy anafranil younger sister. This case was particular due to an association with mercury poisoning. The symptomatology was improved after different therapeutic attempts including Clomipramide and, particularly effective, rerigerating socks (D(r) Comet, CNES, Toulouse). In the literature we were unable to find any case of erythromelalgia related to mercury poisoning. The cases of familial erythromelalgia reported suggest X-linked dominant transmission. Finally, this case demonstrated the difficulties in diagnosing and treating erythromelalgia, especially in the child.

We sought to determine whether adults with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) who respond to intensive exposure and response (ritual) prevention (EX/RP) with or without clomipramine (CMI) fare better 12 weeks buy anafranil after treatment discontinuation than responders receiving CMI alone. After receiving 12 weeks of treatment (EX/RP, CMI, EX/RP+CMI, or pill placebo [PBO] in a randomized clinical trial conducted at three outpatient research centers), 46 adults with OCD who responded to treatment (18 EX/RP, 11 CMI, 15 EX/RP+CMI, 2 PBO) were followed after treatment discontinuation for 12 weeks. Patients were assessed every 4 weeks with the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale, the National Institutes of Health Global Obsessive-Compulsive Scale, and the Clinical Global Impressions scale by an evaluator who was blind to original treatment assignment. The primary hypothesis was that EX/RP and EX/RP+CMI responders would be less likely to relapse 12 weeks after treatment discontinuation than responders to CMI alone. Twelve weeks after treatment discontinuation, EX/RP and EX/RP+CMI responders, compared to CMI responders, had a significantly lower relapse rate (4/33 = 12% versus 5/11 = 45%) and a significantly longer time to relapse. The CMI relapse rate was lower than previously reported. Nonetheless, responders receiving intensive EX/RP with or without CMI fared significantly better 12 weeks after treatment discontinuation than responders receiving CMI alone.

We found that ADs fail to induce TrkB signalling before postnatal day 12 (P12) after which an adult response of TrkB to ADs was observed. Interestingly, there was a temporally inverse correlation buy anafranil between the appearance of the responsiveness of TrkB to systemic ADs and the marked developmental reduction of BDNF-induced TrkB in brain microslices ex vivo. Basal p-TrkB status in the brain of BDNF deficient mice was significantly reduced only during early postnatal period. Enhancing cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate) signalling failed to facilitate TrkB responsiveness to BDNF. Reduced responsiveness of TrkB to BDNF was not produced by the developmental increase in the expression of dominant-negative truncated TrkB.T1 because this reduction was similarly observed in the brain microslices of trkB.T1(-/-) mice. Moreover, postnatal AD administration produced long-lasting behavioural alterations observable in adult mice, but the responses were different when mice were treated during the time when ADs did not (P4-9) or did (P16-21) activate TrkB.

Clomipramine, a new antidepressant, differs from imipramine by having chlorine in position 3 of the aromatic ring and in this respect resembles chlorpromazine. Clomipramine was therefore tested for neuroleptic activity. Clomipramine and imipramine were ineffective in inhibiting the traction response and pinna reflex in mice and in inducing catalepsy in rat. Compared to chlorpromazine they were less potent in blocking conditioned avoidance response and in decreasing spontaneous motor activity and exploratory behaviour. In contrast to chlorpromazine, clomipramine like imipramine was found to enhance methamphetamine-induced stereotyped behaviour. Thus clomipramine like imipramine buy anafranil possesses negligible neuroleptic activity.

Ejaculation was pharmacologically induced in a 13-year-old Quarter Horse stallion with a spiral fracture of the radius. The owners desired to have semen from the stallion frozen prior to euthanatizing the horse, but because of the debilitating injury, standard methods of semen collection could not be used. With the stallion standing quietly in a stall buy anafranil , a plastic collection bag was positioned over the stallion's penis, and clomipramine hydrochloride (2.2 mg/kg of body weight, IV) was administered. Fifty-five minutes later, xylazine hydrochloride (0.5 mg/kg, IV) was administered. The stallion ejaculated 2 minutes after xylazine administration. The semen sample was of low volume and had a high concentration of spermatozoa; however, motility of spermatazoa was poor and the semen was unacceptable for freezing. The stallion was euthanatized. Semen aspirated from the epididymis after euthanasia was of similar quality to that of the ejaculated sample. Pharmacologic induction of ejaculation can be useful for obtaining semen from stallions when standard techniques cannot be applied.

Patients suffering from chronic obsessive-compulsive states were treated with clomipramine up to 200 mg/day according to tolerance for periods up to 8 months and their plasma clomipramine and desmethylclomipramine concentrations determined weekly by a double radioisotope derivative technique. Plasma concentrations of both the parent compound and its metabolite rose with dose and within 7-14 days of constant dosage reached steady states. A strong positive correlation was found buy anafranil between clomipramine, and to a lesser extent desmethylclomipramine, and the daily dose of clomipramine. In almost all patients plasma desmethylclomipramine concentrations exceeded those of unchanged drug by a factor of two or three.

However, we observed a decrease of prefrontal theta cordance after the first week of clomipramine therapy. Manic symptoms emerged after two weeks of clomipramine treatment. A decrease of prefrontal theta cordance preceded the clomipramine induced switch to hypomania during the next episode of depression also. LORETA before and during clomipramine therapies detected a significant increase of theta in the right postcentralis gyrus in the parietal lobe, and a borderline increase of alfa2 in the right middle frontal gyrus.

In a situation in which a short-term isolated (I) and a group-housed (S) rat were placed together, the influence of various drugs on social behaviour was analysed. It was found that a single intraperitoneal injection of 7.5 mg/kg of the antidepressant drugs clomipramine, nortriptyline and mianserine normalized the increased social interactions of the isolated rat to the level of the group-housed rat, without affecting the social behaviour of that animal. This action of the drugs was not due to changes in locomotor activity. An opiate (morphine), an opiate antagonist (naloxone), a tranquilizer (diazepam), a neuroleptic (haloperidol) and a psychostimulant (amphetamine) did not preferentially influence the social behaviour of the isolated rat. Chronic treatment with the antidepressants did not reduce the increased social interactions of isolated animals. In spite of this it is clear that the increased social behaviour of short-term isolated buy anafranil rats was specifically affected by the antidepressant drugs. This suggests that this behavioural procedure might be useful for predicting antidepressant activity.

Quantitative review of the controlled treatment outcome literature for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) showed that exposure with response prevention was highly effective in reducing OCD symptoms. Cognitive approaches were also found to be at least as effective as exposure procedures. It appears that both cognitive and exposure interventions involve some buy anafranil overlapping procedures and capitalize on similar mechanisms of change. Serotonergic medication, particularly clomipramine, also substantially reduced OCD symptoms. However, clomipramine may not be particularly superior to other serotonergic medication. The relationship between side effects and effect size in medication trials was explored.

Some antidepressants, such as clomipramine and fluoxetine ( Strattera 50 Mg 10(-8) - 10(-5) mol/l), increase the percentage of released serotonin in the incubation medium but have no effect on histamine release. In contrast, amitriptyline (10(-4) mol/l) inhibits the secretion of histamine and permits that of serotonin. The varying effects of antidepressants on the secretion of histamine and serotonin could be explained either by a differential mechanism of secretion of both amines from mast cells or by a selective effect of drugs on the reuptake of serotonin into mast cells after stimulation by compound 48/80. These hypotheses were further investigated in our present study on rat peritoneal mast cells. Our findings suggest that antidepressants influence the secretion and the reuptake process of amines used. Their effects depend on the concentration of the drug. At lower concentrations, antidepressants (amitriptyline, doxepine and clomipramine) produce no effect on the secretion of the amines whereas at higher concentrations ( > 10(-5) mol/l), they inhibit the release. Additionally, mast cells are capable of removing released serotonin from the incubation medium. Serotonin uptake is an active process which increases with the time of incubation with exogenous serotonin and depends on the presence of extracellular Ca2+ and on the temperature of the medium. Preincubation of mast cells with antidepressants inhibits the reuptake of serotonin into mast cells and thus increases the concentration of serotonin in the incubation medium. Since the reuptake of serotonin is a relatively slow process, the elevation of serotonin in the medium is evident only after longer times of incubation.

Amineptine was shown to be an effective antidepressant in the patients studied, and did not cause secondary sexual dysfunction, and even improved the dysfunction that was present in some patients. In those patients previously treated with SSRI's, amineptine is able to significantly improve the sexual dysfunction and yet maintain the Ventolin 220 Mg efficacy of the antidepressive treatment used before these 6 months. On the other hand, Paroxetine did not improve the sexual dysfunction of the people in whom this drug substituted another SSRI, as this is an adverse effect common to the entire group of selective serotonin re-uptake inhibiting drugs. Amineptine showed a good safety and tolerance profile. Its most common side effect (anxiety/restlessness) disappeared 2 months after the beginning of the treatment.

SSRIs are at least as effective as TCAs in the treatment of both overall depression as well as anxiety symptoms. TCAs can cause significant Zyloprim Drug Card and sometimes unacceptable side effects which limit their therapeutic potential. SSRIs, on the other hand, have little or no effect on cholinergic, histaminergic or adrenergic receptors, and have a very favourable tolerability profile.

Depression in the elderly is nowadays a predominant health care problem, mainly due to the progressive aging of the population. It results from psychosocial stress, polypathology Dallas Botox Prices , as well as some biochemical changes which occur in the aged brain and can lead to cognitive impairments, increased symptoms from medical illness, higher utilization of health care services and increased rates of suicide and nonsuicide mortality. Therefore, it is very important to make an early diagnosis and a suitable pharmacological treatment, not only for resolving the acute episode, but also for preventing relapse and enhancing the quality of life. Age-related changes in pharmacokinetics and in pharmacodynamics have to be kept into account before prescribing an antidepressant therapy in an old patient. In this paper some of the most important and tolerated drugs in the elderly are reviewed. Tricyclic antidepressants have to be used carefully for their important side effects. Nortriptyline, amytriptiline, clomipramine and desipramine as well, seem to be the best tolerated tricyclics in old people. Second generation antidepressants are preferred for the elderly and those patients with heart disease as they have milder side effects and are less toxic in overdose and include the so called atypicals, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, serotonin noradrenalene reuptake inhibitors and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors. Monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors are useful drugs in resistant forms of depression in which the above mentioned drugs have no efficacy; the last generation drugs (reversible MAO inhibitors), such as meclobemide, seem to be very successful. Mood stabilizing drugs are widely used for preventing recurrences of depression and for preventing and treating bipolar illness. They include lithium, which is sometimes used especially to prevent recurrence of depression, even if its use is limited in old patients for its side effects, the anticonvulsants carbamazepine and valproic acid. Putative last generation mood stabilizing drugs include the dihydropyridine L-type calcium channel blockers and the anticonvulsants phenytoin, lamotrigine, gabapentin and topiramate, which have unique mechanisms of action and also merit further systematic study. Psychotherapy is often used as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy, while electroconvulsant therapy is used only in the elderly patients with severe depression, high risk of suicide or drug resistant forms.

In a series of 74 experiments in a double blind study, 25 healthy test persons were medicated with a single dose of Clomipramin, Desipramin, Imipramin, Diazepam, Carbamazepin, Haloperidol, and a placebo. At the end of one hour, and again at the end of three hours, an EEG was made whose frequency analysis revealed significant changes in about half the test persons. The antidepressives induced an increase in the theta waves, the slow alpha waves, and the slow beta waves, and a decrease in the fast alpha waves. The factors influencing the EEG are discussed.

The relationship between peripheral serotonergic variables, melancholic traits, and clinical improvement after antidepressant treatment was examined in 83 drug-free major depressive patients. Plasma serotonin (5-HT) concentrations was lower in untreated melancholic patients (1.00 +/- 0.11 vs. 1.84 +/- 0.28 ng/mL, p < 0.008; N = 40 and 43, respectively). A tendency was observed for plasma 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (p < 0.06), whereas platelet 5-HT and plasma tryptophan did not differ between groups. After blood sampling and clinical ratings, treatment began with fixed doses of 5-HT uptake inhibitors (clomipramine or fluvoxamine), monoamine oxidase inhibitors, or tianeptine, a 5-HT uptake enhancer. There was no significant difference in response rates between patients with and without melancholic traits. The relationship between the clinical response at 6 weeks (>50% reduction of baseline Hamilton score) and the pretreatment values of biochemical variables was examined. Responders had a lower pretreatment platelet 5-HT (530 +/- 36 vs. 664 +/- 50 ng/10(9) platelets, p < 0.03; N = 44 and 39, respectively). Patients with a platelet 5-HT concentration above 800 ng/10(9) platelets had a lower response rate than those below this value (p < 0.003). This difference was maximal in the subgroup of patients treated with 5-HT uptake inhibitors (N = 49). In this subgroup, the response rates of patients with 5-HT concentrations below and above the cutoff point were, respectively, 70% and 17% (p < 0.001). A pretreatment platelet 5-HT value above 800 ng/10(9) platelets had a predictive value for a negative response of 92%. These results suggest the presence of biochemical differences in the peripheral serotonergic system between melancholic and nonmelancholic patients. The inverse relationship between the pretreatment platelet 5-HT content and clinical response may be useful in the investigation of the relationship between the 5-HT system and antidepressant response.

We report a case of generalized dermatitis and itch induced by a possible drug-food interaction in a young woman who was consuming clomipramine for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). A 33-year-old woman affected by anxiety symptoms presented to our observation for a clinical evaluation. After psychiatric evaluation, the diagnosis of OCD was performed according to DSM-IV-TR and a pharmacological treatment with clomipramine (75-100 mg/day) plus alprazolam (0.5 mg/day) was started. About one month later, the patient developed a severe generalized urticaria with intense itch. A new anamnesis revealed that on the day before the development of the skin rash, no other drug was consumed and the patient had eaten codfish; clomipramine was then gradually discontinued and changed into paroxetine (30 mg/day). At the moment the patient does not show any OCD related symptom and any adverse event to paroxetine treatment has been recorded. We postulate a possible interaction between clomipramine and codfish ingestion. Allergic potential of clomipramine was investigated, while clomipramine de-challenge induced a decrease of the skin rash, the drug re-challenge performed one month later did not induce any adverse event. In contrast, when the combined re-challenge of codfish and clomipramine was performed urticaria was newly observed. The Naranjo Probability Scale Score suggested a probable causal relationship between drug-food interaction and the skin rash. In conclusion, we suggest evaluating also the complete risk of drug-food interaction occurring on clomipramine treatment.

A simple and fast capillary gas chromatographic method with flame ionization detection is proposed for the simultaneous determination of fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, and clomipramine without a prederivatization. The reported method is the first one that allows the determination of three selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Optimal conditions for the quantitative separation were investigated: column head pressure (80 kPa), injector and detector temperatures (260 and 250 degrees C), time and temperature for the splitless step (0.75 min and 60 degrees C), size of sample (2 microL), and oven temperature program, providing analysis times shorter than 10 min. Aspects such as the stability of the solutions, linearity, accuracy, and precision are examined in order to validate this method. Peak purity and detection and quantitation limits are also assessed using mass selective detection. The scope of the validated method is tested in the analysis of pharmaceutical preparations, with recoveries between 97.5 and 102.5% with regard to their nominal contents.

Premature ejaculation (PE), the most common male sexual dysfunction, impacts the quality of life of not only the affected male but also his partner. Despite its prevalence, there are currently no United States Food and Drug Administration-approved therapies for PE. In 2004, the American Urological Association published treatment guidelines for PE that recommended the serotonergic antidepressants paroxetine, sertraline, clomipramine and fluoxetine, as well as topical lidocaine-prilocaine cream. None of these treatments were developed for PE, and all have limitations associated with their use. Therapies in development may have advantages over the currently available treatments. These include PSD-502, a metered-dose aerosol of lidocaine and prilocaine used as an on-demand local treatment, and dapoxetine, an on-demand short-acting selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Together with a recent, evidence-based definition of PE, these novel therapies should improve sexual function and quality of life in men suffering from PE.
