Insomnia both as a symptom and as part of chronic insomnia disorder is quite common in menopause. Comorbid conditions, such as restless legs syndrome and obstructive sleep apnea, occur with high prevalence among perimenopausal women with insomnia. Insomnia in this population group is associated with adverse health outcomes, and there are no clear standards on how to treat it.

In Schistosoma mansoni, the miracidium-to-primary sporocyst transformation process is associated with many physiological, morphological, transcriptional and biochemical changes. In the present study, we use a medium-throughput small-molecule screen to identify chemical compounds inhibiting or delaying the in vitro transformation of miracidia to the sporocyst stage. The Sigma-Aldrich Library of Pharmacologically Active Compounds (LOPAC) contains 1280 well-characterized chemical compounds with various modes of action including enzyme inhibitors, antibiotics, cell-cycle regulators, apoptosis inducers and GPCR ligands. We identified 47 compounds that greatly reduce or delay this transformation process during a primary screen of live miracidia. The majority of compounds inhibiting larval transformation were from dopaminergic, serotonergic, ion channel and phosphorylation classes. Specifically, we found that dopamine D2-type antagonists, serotonin reuptake inhibitors, voltage-gated calcium channel antagonists and a PKC activator significantly reduced in vitro miracidial transformation rates. Many of the targets of these compounds regulate adenylyl cyclase activity, with the inhibition or activation of these targets resulting in increased cAMP levels in miracidia and concomitant blocking/delaying of larval transformation.

How the brain monitors ongoing behavior for performance errors is a central question of cognitive neuroscience. Diminished awareness of performance errors limits the extent to which humans engage in corrective behavior and has been linked to loss of insight in a number of psychiatric syndromes (e.g., attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, drug addiction). These conditions share alterations in monoamine signaling that may influence the neural mechanisms underlying error processing, but our understanding of the neurochemical drivers of these processes is limited. We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over design of the influence of methylphenidate, atomoxetine, and citalopram on error awareness in 27 healthy participants. The error awareness task, a go/no-go response inhibition paradigm, was administered to assess the influence of monoaminergic agents on performance errors during fMRI data acquisition. A single dose of methylphenidate, but not atomoxetine or citalopram, significantly improved the ability of healthy volunteers to consciously detect performance errors. Furthermore, this behavioral effect was associated with a strengthening of activation differences in the dorsal anterior cingulate cortex and inferior parietal lobe during the methylphenidate condition for errors made with versus without awareness. Our results have implications for the understanding of the neurochemical underpinnings of performance monitoring and for the pharmacological treatment of a range of disparate clinical conditions that are marked by poor awareness of errors.

Main limitations are lack of a comparison group to help pinpoint whether citalopram treatment added risk or protection, a placebo group to determine whether changes in SI were related to illness factors, medication effects or other factors, and more detailed and validated measures of SI.

Pindolol has been reported to shorten the onset of antidepressant action of selective serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) as well as to increase their efficacy. It has been postulated that pindolol enhances the antidepressant effect of SSRIs by blocking somatodendritic 5-HT1A autoreceptors, thus antagonizing the SSRI-induced feedback inhibition of midbrain 5-HT cell firing. A recent study, however, found that pindolol suppresses the firing rate of central 5-HT cells, suggesting that the compound possesses agonistic activity at 5-HT1A autoreceptors.

Approximately 30-45% of patients with major depressive episode (MDE) do not fully respond to standard recommended treatments and further strategies of intervention, including pharmacological augmentation, have been proposed for these patients. This study was aimed to evaluate the efficacy of short-term, low-dose (10 mg/day) intravenous (i.v.) citalopram augmentation versus placebo in a sample of patients with MDE and partial or no response to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Thirty-six patients with a Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, 4th edition, text revision criteria MDE and partial or no response to oral SSRIs were selected and randomly assigned to citalopram (n=18) or to placebo (n=18) i.v. augmentation. The augmentation regimen lasted 5 consecutive days during which the patients were maintained on their current treatment with oral SSRIs. Analyses of variance with repeated measures on Hamilton Depression Rating Scale and Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale total scores, administered daily with blind-raters conditions, were done. With regard to the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale total scores, a significant time effect (F=42.02, P<0.0001) and timextreatment effect (F=21.17, P<0.0001) were found in favor of citalopram. Similar results were obtained from the analysis on Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale total scores: time effect (F=50.07, P<0.0001), timextreatment effect (F=19.91, P<0.0001), and treatment effect (F=4.07, P=0.05). Even though referred to a small sample, the present findings seem to suggest that short-term, low-dose, i.v. citalopram augmentation may be effective in depressed patients with partial or no response to oral SSRIs. Further controlled studies performed with double-blind conditions are warranted to confirm the present results.

Two new cases are presented with delusions of parasitosis. Both were women, one middle-aged and one elderly, and exhibited classic symptoms of parasites and "strings" in the skin indicative of Morgellons disease. Each had an additional psychiatric disorder: drug addiction to cocaine and senile dementia. They also illustrate the difficulty encountered by the dermatologist in providing adequate therapy because of resistance to psychiatric referral as well as to standard accepted medication. Newer psychotropics, such as risperdal and lexapro, show promise in helping these patients and add to the therapeutic armamentarium of pimozide.

Fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, paroxetine and sertraline may substantially increase TCA plasma levels when given concurrently. Such interactions may give rise to adverse effects. The effect of sertraline may be less profound than that of fluoxetine, fluvoxamine and paroxetine. Limited data suggest that citalopram may not affect TCA serum levels. There is scant literature evidence to support the use of SSRIs in combination with TCAs as a treatment for refractory depression.

Fenfluramine, a clinically prescribed appetite suppressant, has been found to damage brain serotonin (5-HT) neurons in every animal species tested to date. Recent findings indicate that fluoxetine, a selective 5-HT reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), can prevent fenfluramine-induced 5-HT neurotoxicity without blocking fenfluramine-induced appetite suppression. The purpose of our studies was several-fold: 1) To determine whether the ability for fluoxetine to dissociate fenfluramine-induced anorexia and neurotoxicity is dose-related; 2) to ascertain whether other SSRIs also prevent fenfluramine-induced neurotoxicity without altering its anorectic effect; 3) to determine whether similar fluoxetine/fenfluramine interactions are seen in another animal species (i.e., mice) and 4) to determine whether decreases in food intake seen after the fluoxetine/fenfluramine combination can be attributed to nonspecific behavioral suppression. Results from our studies indicate that fluoxetine's effects are, indeed, dose-related, because higher doses of fluoxetine are required to protect against the 5-HT neurotoxic effects of higher doses of fenfluramine. Further, our results indicate that fluoxetine's effects generalize to all other SSRIs tested (citalopram, paroxetine and sertraline), as well as to other species (mice). Finally, our results demonstrate that anorexia in animals receiving the fenfluramine/fluoxetine combination is not secondary to nonspecific behavioral suppression, because water intake is increased although food intake is decreased in the same animals. Together, these data suggest that the anorectic and 5-HT neurotoxic effects of fenfluramine may involve different mechanisms, and that by combining fenfluramine with SSRIs, it may be possible to exploit fenfluramine's clinically useful properties (e.g., anorexia) without risking brain 5-HT neural injury.

Several of the genes in the serotonergic and the dopaminergic systems have consensus binding sites for the AP-2 transcription factor family in their regulatory regions. Imbalances in these systems have been implicated in many psychiatric disorders, including depression and bipolar affective disorder. We have made an effort to further elucidate the molecular mechanisms of drugs used for affective disorders. Recently, we analyzed the effects of chronic treatment with certain antidepressants on AP-2 in rat brain. The present study demonstrates that chronic administration of three different classes of antidepressants modulates the DNA-binding activity of AP-2 in the rat brain. Chronic administration of citalopram (10 mg/kg), imipramin (10 mg/kg) and lithium-chloride (40 mg/kg) significantly decreased DNA-binding activity of AP-2. Furthermore, citalopram (10 mg/kg) and imipramin (10 mg/kg) significantly decreased the amount of AP-2alpha protein as determined by ELISA. In addition, citalopram (10 mg/kg) significantly decreased the amount of AP-2beta protein. In contrast, chronic administration of lithium-chloride (40 mg/kg) did not affect the amount of the two AP-2 isoforms. An increased understanding of the function of transcription factors and their involvement in human disease, such as depression, could make it possible in the future to selectively modulate relevant target genes directly.

lexapro generic reviews 2016-12-20

The output of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) from the amygdalopirifrom cortex has been measured in anaesthetized rats using intracerebral microdialysis followed by HPLC analysis. buy lexapro Basal output overall of 5-HT was 2.558 +/- 0.351 fmol/20 min sampling period. Application of the 5-HT antagonist metergoline through the dialysis probe resulted in a greater than 10-fold increase in the overflow of 5-HT. The major portion of this increase occurred in the range 1-3 microM metergoline, and was completely attenuated by inclusion of tetrodotoxin. More specific 5-HT antagonists, such as cyanopindolol, also enhanced output, but to a lesser extent. The pharmacological profile of the receptors mediating the effect was similar to that of the 5-HT1B type, which are often found presynaptically on 5-HT-containing nerve terminals. Other drugs were also capable of altering the output of 5-HT; in particular, muscimol reduced dialysate 5-HT content, while propranolol increased it. The 5-HT uptake inhibitor citalopram significantly increased the overflow of 5-HT, but only by about 80% above basal levels. It is concluded that the release of 5-HT from the rat amygdalopiriform cortex in vivo is tightly restricted due to activation of 5-HT1B receptors. Small alterations in such activation, however, can lead to large changes in 5-HT output, suggesting a possible mechanism by which neurotransmission through the amygdalopiriform cortex may become unstably amplified. These results may be of significance to the generation of epileptic activity in the amygdala or piriform cortex.

Local application of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, fluvoxamine and citalopram, prolonged the clearance of exogenously administered serotonin (5-HT) in both the dentate gyrus and CA3 region of the dorsal hippocampus, as measured using in vivo chronoamperometry. These effects were abolished in rats pretreated with 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine. The NE uptake inhibitors, desipramine buy lexapro and protriptyline, did not alter the 5-HT signal in the CA3 region, but prolonged the clearance of 5-HT in the dentate gyrus; this effect was absent in rats pretreated with 6-hydroxydopamine. From these data, it is inferred that both the SERT and NET contribute to the active clearance of exogenously applied 5-HT in the dentate gyrus. In another experiment, cyanopindolol, an antagonist of the serotonin terminal autoreceptor, also prolonged the clearance of 5-HT from the CA3 region. These and other data have generated a working hypothesis that activation of the terminal serotonin autoreceptor enhances the kinetics of 5-HT uptake through an effect on the serotonin transporter.

Studies so far have provided contradictory results on immune system markers during use of antidepressants. There are no data on changes in immune parameters after treatment augmentation. The present study aimed to clarify whether the addition of bupropion in escitalopram-resistant patients with major depression causes changes in the immune system and whether treatment response could be predicted by baseline levels of cytokines. We recruited 28 depressive patients (11 men and 17 women) who did not respond to 12-week treatment with escitalopram (20 mg/d) for an augmentation trial with bupropion (150-300 mg/day). The levels of soluble interleukin-2 receptor, interleukin-8 (IL-8) and tumor-necrosis factor-alpha buy lexapro were measured before and 6 weeks after addition of bupropion. For a control group, we recruited 45 healthy volunteers (19 men and 26 women). The results indicated that the baseline levels of studied cytokines did not predict treatment response to bupropion augmentation. Concentration of IL-8 increased during the treatment similarly in both responder and non-responder groups. Although bupropion augmentation had increased the response rate in escitalopram-resistant patients, this clinical improvement was not accompanied by specific changes in studied cytokine levels.

This study aimed to investigate the effect of statins for the treatment of depression in individuals with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We used 1-year follow-up data of a 24-week double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of escitalopram and a naturalistic prospective observational cohort study. Of 446 participants with comorbid depressive disorders and ACS at baseline, 300 participated in a randomised escitalopram trial and the remaining 146 participated in a naturalistic observational study. The participants in the two studies were approached for a 1-year follow-up investigation. Treatment response rates, defined as a ⩾ 50% reduction in the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) scores, were used as the outcome variables. In the escitalopram trial, both HAM-D and BDI response rates were highest in patients taking escitalopram and statins together and lowest in patients receiving neither medication. Logistic regression analyses revealed that statin use was significantly associated with higher response rates on both the HAM-D and BDI at 1 year, whereas no such associations were found for escitalopram. In the naturalistic observational study buy lexapro , the response rates at 1 year did not differ significantly by statin use. Instead, the HAM-D response rate was significantly higher in patients taking lipophilic statins than in those who did not. In conclusion, statins may be effective for the treatment of depression independent of medical status and escitalopram use, and they may potentiate the antidepressant action of serotonergic antidepressants in patients with ACS.

There is substantial inter-individual variation in response to antidepressants, and genetic variation may, in part, explain these differences. For example, there is evidence to suggest that variation in the serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4) predicts response to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Environmental factors such as the occurrence of stressful life events before treatment may also be important. One prior report suggests that both factors interact in predicting response to antidepressants. GENDEP, a prospective part-randomized pharmacogenomics trial, collected longitudinal data on the outcome of 811 patients with major depression undergoing treatment with either an SSRI (escitalopram) or a tricyclic antidepressant (nortriptyline). Life events experienced over 6 months preceding treatment were measured using a buy lexapro List of Threatening Experiences Questionnaire, and several polymorphisms in the serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4) have been genotyped including the serotonin transporter-linked polymorphic region (5-HTTLPR). Stressful life events were shown to predict a significantly better response to escitalopram but had no effect on response to nortriptyline. Variation in the 5-HTTLPR and another polymorphism in the gene, STin4, significantly modified these effects. Gene-environment interactions including life events may therefore be important not only in the aetiology of depression, but also in predicting response to antidepressant medication.

Aside from monoamine disturbances, recent evidence has implicated particular intracellular pathways, including Wnt signaling, in the pathogenesis of major depressive disorder. In the present study, we investigated the role of Wingless (Wnt)-Dishevelled (DVL)-glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) signaling in the depression-like behaviors exhibited by rats exposed to chronic forced swim stress. We found that the rats subjected to forced swim stress for 14 consecutive days exhibited obvious depression-like behaviors and showed decreased levels of phosphorylated GSK3β and β- buy lexapro catenin in the hippocampus. Chronic citalopram treatment alleviated the depression-like behaviors and reversed the disruptions of the phosphorylated GSK3β and β-catenin in stressed rats. Furthermore, when the stressed rats with citalopram treatment received bilateral, dorsal hippocampus infusions of a DVL inhibitor, sulindac, the depression-like effects induced by chronic stress reappeared. These findings suggest that the Wnt-DVL-GSK3β signaling in the hippocampus is markedly involved in the pathophysiology of depression induced by chronic stress. The Wnt-DVL-GSK3β pathway may mediate the therapeutic action of citalopram, and the manipulation of DVL could be a target for novel antidepressants.

Evidence suggests that the serotonin 2A receptor (5-HT2AR) modulates the therapeutic activity of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Indeed, among the genetic factors known to influence the individual response to antidepressants, the HTR2A gene has been associated with SSRIs response in depressed patients. However, in these pharmacogenetic studies, the consequences of HTR2A gene polymorphisms on 5-HT2AR expression or function are lacking and the precise role of this receptor buy lexapro is still matter of debate. This study examined the effect of 5-HT2AR agonism or antagonism with DOI and MDL100907, respectively, on the serotonergic system and the antidepressant-like activity of the SSRI escitalopram in mouse. The 5-HT2AR agonist DOI decreased the firing rate of 5-HT neurons in the dorsal raphe (DR) nucleus of 5-HT2AR(+/+) anesthetized mice. This inhibitory response persisted in 5-HT2CR(-/-) but was completely blunted in 5-HT2AR(-/-) mutants. Moreover, the suppressant effect of DOI on DR 5-HT neuronal activity in 5-HT2AR(+/+) mice was attenuated by the loss of noradrenergic neurons induced by the neurotoxin DSP4. Conversely, in 5-HT2AR(+/+) mice, the pharmacological inactivation of the 5-HT2AR by the selective antagonist MDL100907 reversed escitalopram-induced decrease in DR 5-HT neuronal activity. Remarkably, in microdialysis experiments, a single injection of escitalopram increased cortical extracellular 5-HT, but not NE, levels in awake 5-HT2AR(+/+) mice. Although the addition of MDL100907 did not potentiate 5-HT neurotransmission, it allowed escitalopram to increase cortical NE outflow and consequently to elicit an antidepressant-like effect in the forced swimming test. These results suggest that the blockade of the 5-HT2AR may strengthen the antidepressant-like effect of escitalopram by facilitating the enhancement of the brain NE transmission. They provide support for the use of atypical antipsychotics with SSRIs as a relevant antidepressant augmentation strategy.

Three dose levels (5, 25, and 50 mg once daily) of the selective serotonin uptake inhibitor citalopram were compared in a four-week, double-blind trial in depressed patients. Serum levels of citalopram and desmethylcitalopram, and the inhibitory effect of serum on serotonin uptake by fresh platelets, were assessed once weekly during the trial. The serum concentrations of citalopram were highly correlated with inhibition of serotonin uptake. Less of Avelox Dose Pneumonia the metabolite was found, it being detected only in the higher dose groups. Steady state levels of citalopram, attained after 1 week, were linearly related to dose. The relationship between improvement (percentage reduction in total score on the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale) and serum level of citalopram indicated a lower limit of effect in endogenous depression at about 100 nM, corresponding to an average dose of 15 mg. Marked improvement was seen in ten patients with steady state levels in the range 70 to 335 nM. The ten nonendogenously depressed patients had steady state levels from 15 to 620 nM; complete remission was seen in the three with the lowest levels (15-25 nM). No significant correlation was found between serum drug level and the few reported side effects.

Of the 270 participants who completed mental stress testing, and had both resting and post-stress platelet aggregation evaluation , 43.33% (n=117) met criteria for MSIMI and 18.15% (n=49) had normal left ventricular response to stress (NLVR). The MSIMI group, relative to the NLVR groups, demonstrated heightened mental stress-induced aggregation responses, as measured by area under the curve, to collagen 10μM (6.95[5.54] vs. -14.23[8.75].; P=0.045), epinephrine 10μM (12.84[4.84] vs. -6.40[7.61].; P=0.037) and to serotonin 10 μM plus ADP 1 μM (6.64[5.29] vs. -27.34[8.34]; P<.001). The resting platelet aggregation and serotonin transporter expression, however, were not different between the two groups.
