We have previously shown that elimination of buffer Ca2+ markedly reduced maximum 5-HT-induced contractions. We have now investigated the effect of L-type Ca2+-channel blockers and 5-HT2 receptor antagonists on 5-HT- and K+-induced contractions in rat aorta to explore the possibility of a relationship between blockade of L-type Ca2+ channels and 5-HT2 receptor antagonism. Sodium nitroprusside, felodipine, nifedipine, diltiazem, cinnarizine, verapamil, ritanserin, cyproheptadine, ketanserin and mianserin inhibited 5-HT-induced contractions of rat aorta with mean IC50 values (concentration (M) resulting in 50% inhibition) of 2.2 x 10(-11), 6.6 x 10(-11), 1.5 x 10(-9), 1.7 x 10(-9), 3.2 x 10(-7), 5.4 x 10(-7), 9.7 x 10(-10), 1.9 x 10(-8), 5.0 x 10(-7) and 6.4 x 10(-7), respectively. The same compounds antagonized K+-induced rat aortic contractions with the rank order of potency (mean IC50, M): felodipine (7.0 x 10(-11)) > nifedipine (4.8 x 10(-9)) > sodium nitroprusside (4.1 x 10(-8)) > verapamil (5.5 x 10(-8)) > cyproheptadine (6.2 x 10(-8)) > diltiazem (4.1 x 10(-7)) > cinnarizine (1.3 x 10(-6)) > ritanserin (1.8 x 10(-6)) > ketanserin (9.0 x 10(-6)) > mianserin (2.0 x 10(-5)). These data are indicative of a highly significant correlation (r=0.81, P=0.03) between potency against 5-HT-induced contraction and that against contractile response to K+ depolarization, and suggest overlap of the pharmacology of L-type Ca2+-channel blockers and 5-HT2 receptor antagonists in rat aorta.

1 The effect of the putative 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptor antagonists, methysergide, methergoline, mianserin, cyproheptadine, cinanserin (all at 10 mg/kg), methiothepin (5 mg/kg) and (-)-propranolol (20 mg/kg) on the behavioural responses to tranylcypromine (10 mg/kg) followed 30 min later by L-tryptophan (100 mg/kg) was examined.2 Methysergide, methergoline, methiothepin and (-)-propranolol inhibited head weaving, forepaw treading and hind-limb abduction. Methysergide and methergoline increased reactivity. In contrast, cypropheptadine, cinanserin and mianserin had no effects on the behaviour.3 Similar findings were obtained when the behaviours were elicited by administration of tranylcypromine (10 mg/kg) followed by the putative 5-HT receptor agonist, 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeODMT) (2 mg/kg).4 When the behaviours were elicited by the putative 5-HT receptor agonist, quipazine (50 mg/kg), all the drugs effectively inhibited head weaving and forepaw treading.5 When the dose of cypropheptadine was doubled to 20 mg/kg an inhibition of the tranylcypromine/L-tryptophan induced behaviours was seen.6 Methiothepin produced a marked inhibition of apomorphine-induced locomotor activity whilst all the others enhanced this response, suggesting that only methiothepin inhibits the 5-HT behaviours by dopamine antagonism and that the increased reactivity seen following tranylcypromine/L-tryptophan after pretreatment with methysergide or methergoline might be due to enhanced dopamine function.7 Pretreatment with p-chlorophenylalanine resulted in enhanced behavioural responses to both 5-MeODMT and quipazine.8 Both methergoline and methiothepin decreased the rate of 5-HT synthesis in whole brain but not spinal cord and methergoline decreased spinal cord 5-HIAA concentration. None of the other drugs had any significant effects on the concentration of 5-HT, 5-HIAA or 5-HT synthesis rate in brain or spinal cord.9 Experiments with compounds structurally related to quipazine and with molecular models suggested that quipazine produces behavioural changes probably by stimulating the 5-HT receptor in a similar way to 5-HT but that it would bind weakly, in agreement with ligand-receptor binding studies.10 It is suggested, therefore, that cyproheptadine, cinanserin and mianserin fail to inhibit 5-HT and 5-MeODMT-induced behaviours because they are weak antagonists whilst they are able to inhibit the same behaviours induced by quipazine because it is a weak agonist.11 These data indicate that extreme care should be taken in accepting or rejecting 5-HT as a mediator of behaviours or of other responses unless several antagonists or agonists have been examined.

The serotonin (5-HT) syndrome is the most serious side effect of antidepressants, and it often necessitates pharmacotherapy. In the present study, the efficacy of several drugs was evaluated in an animal model of the 5-HT syndrome. When 2 mg/kg of clorgyline, a type-A monoamine oxidase inhibiting antidepressant, and 100 mg/kg of 5-hydroxy-L-tryptophan, a precursor of 5-HT, were administered intraperitoneally to rats to induce the 5-HT syndrome, the rectal temperature of the rats increased to more than 40 degrees C, and all of the animals died by 90 min after the drug administration. The noradrenaline (NA) levels in the anterior hypothalamus, measured by microdialysis, increased to 15.9 times the preadministration level. Pretreatment with propranolol (10 mg/kg), a 5-HT(1A) receptor antagonist as well as a beta-blocker, and dantrolene (20 mg/kg), a peripheral muscle relaxant, did not prevent the death of the animals, even though these two drugs suppressed the increase in rectal temperature to some extent. Chlorpromazine and cyproheptadine prevented the lethality associated with the 5-HT syndrome only at high doses. By contrast, pretreatment with ritanserin (3 mg/kg) and pipamperone (20 mg/kg), both potent 5-HT(2A) receptor antagonists, completely prevented the increase in rectal temperature and death of the animals, and the hypothalamic NA levels in these two groups increased less than that in the other groups. These results suggest that potent 5-HT(2A) receptor antagonists are the most effective drugs for treatment of the 5-HT syndrome, and that NA hyperactivity occurs in the 5-HT syndrome.

Both histamine (0.001-10 micromol/l) and LTD(4) (0.001-10 micromol/l) produced a concentration-dependent increase in the lumen area of nasal mucosa arteries and veins. Histamine (0.01 micromol/l) alone produced a 24 and 12% increase in cross-sectional areas of arteries and veins, respectively. LTD(4) (0.001 micromol/l) alone increased artery and vein dilation by about 17 and 9%, respectively. Combination treatment with histamine (0.01 micromol/l) and LTD(4) (0.001 micromol/l) increased vessel dilation by 65% (arteries) and 26% (veins). In our in vivo Brown Norway rat studies, oral loratadine (0.01-10 mg/kg) and montelukast (0.01-10 mg/kg) significantly reduced antigen-induced total nasal inflammatory cell infiltration in a dose-dependent manner. The antiinflammatory dose-response curve of loratadine was shifted to the left when studied in combination with montelukast (0.01 mg/kg). Similarly, the dose-response characteristics of montelukast (0.01-10 mg/kg) was shifted in the presence of loratadine (0.01 mg/kg).

To study the role of serotonin in regulating the release of aldosterone, we gave single, oral doses of cyproheptadine, an antiserotoninergic agent, to five normal volunteers with high aldosterone levels secondary to sodium deprivation and to 14 patients with aldosteronism (six with idiopathic aldosteronism due to bilateral adrenal hyperplasia and eight with adrenal adenoma). A diet containing 150 mmol of sodium was given to the patients with spontaneous aldosteronism, and one containing 10 mmol of sodium was given to the normal subjects, for three days before treatment and throughout the study. All subjects received dexamethasone, 2 mg daily. Serum aldosterone was measured with the subject in the recumbent position before cyproheptadine administration and at 30-minute intervals for two hours afterward. Serum aldosterone fell significantly (P less than 0.025) from the basal level in the patients with idiopathic aldosteronism due to hyperplasia. No fall was observed in the normal subjects or in the patients with adenoma. No changes were seen in renin activity, cortisol, sodium, or potassium, in any group after cyproheptadine. Suppression of aldosterone with cyproheptadine suggests a serotonin-mediated aldosterone-stimulating system. Hyperactivity of this system may be the cause of idiopathic aldosteronism associated with adrenal hyperplasia.

Biological activities of C3 beta c, which is a C-terminal fragment of the beta-chain of rat complement C3, have been studied by in vivo and in vitro experiments. C3 beta c was purified as a novel neutrophil chemoattractant from the exudate of the chronic phase of rat carrageenin-induced inflammation. The purified C3 beta c induced neutrophil chemotaxis in vivo when C3 beta c was injected into the preformed air-pouch on the back of rats. C3 beta c transiently increased the intracellular free Ca2+ concentration of neutrophils and enhanced the adhesion of neutrophils to fibrinogen in vitro, suggesting that C3 beta c has the ability to express an adhesion molecule of rat neutrophils. In addition, C3 beta c at low concentrations (10(-10)-10(-11) M) stimulated rat macrophages to produce cytokine-induced neutrophil chemoattractant-2, a member of the interleukin-8 family. Furthermore, C3 beta c enhanced vascular permeability in vivo, which is suppressed by cyproheptadine, suggesting that C3 beta c may have the characteristics of an anaphylatoxin. Our results suggest that C3 beta c contributes to oedema formation and neutrophil accumulation at inflammatory sites in rats.

The data presented show that along with acid-peptic aggression an important role in pathogenesis of stress ulceration in the stomach and duodenum belongs to energy and immune deficiency which makes the correction of these alterations necessary. The timely and valuable conservative therapy including histamine H2-receptor blocking agents in addition to antacids and endoscopic electrocoagulation in case of profuse bleeding from stress ulcers allows to obtain hemostasis and healing of the ulcers more than in 90% of cases. When choosing the surgical method of treatment the preference should be given to atraumatic organ-preserving operations.

Histamine is a key mediator of the allergic immediate reaction. Antihistamines belong to the most frequently used treatment modalities in allergic rhinitis.

periactin drug information

A total of 317 patients received loratadine, 10 mg once daily, terfenadine 60 mg twice daily, or placebo in a 14-day, double-blind, randomized study in seasonal allergic rhinitis. Four nasal and four nonnasal symptoms were evaluated. At the end point evaluation, mean total scores of combined nasal and nonnasal symptoms decreased from baseline (improved) 46%, 44%, and 35%, respectively, for loratadine, terfenadine, and placebo. The difference between loratadine and placebo treatment was significant (p = 0.03). Loratadine was particularly effective compared with placebo in relieving nasal discharge, sneezing, and itching/burning eyes. Therapeutic response to treatment was good or excellent in 66 (64%) of 103 loratadine-treated patients, 58 (56%) of 104 terfenadine-treated patients, and 48 (47%) of 102 placebo-treated patients. Adverse experiences reported during the study were usually mild or moderate and were not significantly different among the three treatment groups. Sedation (somnolence) was reported by 10 loratadine-treated patients, seven terfenadine-treated patients, and eight placebo-treated patients. Loratadine, 10 mg once daily, was comparable to terfenadine, 60 mg twice daily, and significantly superior to placebo in the symptomatic relief of seasonal allergic rhinitis.

This was a single-center, randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study. At visit 1, eligible subjects underwent conjunctival allergen challenge to identify the dose required to elicit a positive allergic reaction. After 7 days, subjects returned for visit 2, at which the allergen dose was confirmed. At visit 3, which took place 2 weeks later, subjects were randomized to receive either emedastine plus placebo capsules, loratadine plus placebo eyedrops, or both emedastine and loratadine. One hour after receiving study drug, subjects were challenged with allergen in both eyes. Allergic signs and symptoms were graded using standardized 5-point scales. The primary efficacy variables were itching and conjunctival hyperemia. Secondary efficacy variables were ciliary and episcleral hyperemia, chemosis, lid swelling, and tearing. Itching was graded subjectively at 3, 5, and 10 minutes after challenge. All other variables were assessed at 5, 10, and 20 minutes after challenge.

Cyproheptadine (CPH)--a putative serotonin antagonist--is known to inhibit growth hormone (GH) response to various pharmacological stimuli, as well as during sleep. To elucidate the possible site at which this drug takes effect, we examined plasma GH and somatostatin response to i.v. GHRH1-44 (1 microgram/kg body wt.) before and after CPH treatment in 10 healthy volunteers. The oral administration of CPH (8-12 mg daily for 5 days; total dose 56 mg) significantly curbed GH response to GHRH as expressed in peak plasma GH values (32.0 +/- 6.1 micrograms/l vs. 12.6 +/- 3.2 micrograms/l; P less than 0.01) and in integrated GH response area (2368 +/- 517 micrograms x l-1 x 2 h vs. 744 +/- 172 micrograms x l-1 x 2 h; P less than 0.01). Plasma somatostatin levels did not change in response to GHRH.

A 40-year-old woman with bipolar disorder who was taking mirtazapine presented with mydriasis, abnormal diaphoresis, myoclonus and muscle rigidity after taking metocloplamide. Her medical history, which included the use of serotonergic agents, and the presence of symptoms including myoclonus and muscle rigidity were consistent with a diagnosis of serotonin syndrome (SS) according to the Hunter criteria. The symptoms diminished following three days of treatment with oral lorazepam and cyproheptadine and a reduced dose of mirtazapine. Metoclopramide is frequently used to various gastric symptom. Metoclopramide is not widely known to induce SS. This potentially fatal condition should be avoided by exercising care in the use of drugs that have the potential to cause drug-drug interactions.

The effects of pirenperone and cyproheptadine on the pressor and tachycardic responses to 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and to dimethylphenylpiperazinium (DMPP) were compared. Both 5-HT antagonists suppressed in a dose-dependent manner the pressor effect of 5-HT, whilst did not noticeably affect the tachycardic effect of 5-HT and the cardiovascular effects of DMPP. On the molecular base, pirenperone was 15 times more potent antagonist of the pressor response to 5-HT than cyproheptadine. It is concluded that not only the 5-HT receptors in arterial smooth muscle but also the 5-HT receptors in sympathetic ganglia and the adrenal medulla responsible for the pressor response to 5-HT are sensitive to the 5-HT antagonists and probably analogous to the central 5-HT2 receptors. The 5-HT receptors in cardiac tissue mediating tachycardia differ in their pharmacological properties from those in arterial smooth muscle responsible for contraction. It is suggested that the ganglionic components of the pressor and tachycardic responses to 5-HT are mediated via different populations of 5-HT receptors in sympathetic ganglia.

Lyophilized Lonomia obliqua crude bristle extract (LOCBE) diluted in physiological saline (15, 35 and 50 microg of protein/paw) was injected in the plantar surface of the hind paw of the rat, causing a nociceptive response which lasted from 30 to a maximum of 50 min, peaking in the first 5 min. The animals also presented hematuria and nasal bleeding. Nociception was inhibited by indomethacin pretreatment (2.5 mg/kg, i.p., 60 min before), but not by guanethidine (30 mg/kg/day, s.c., for 3 days) or loratadine (5 mg/kg, p.o., 60 min before). LOCBE injection also produced paw edema peaking 1 h after injection and lasting for 6 h. Loratadine pretreatment, but neither guanethidine nor indomethacin, reduced edema. After the period of overt nociception, a nociceptive aftersensation response could be evoked up to 6 h after by immersing the paw into cold water (15 degrees C) for 10 s. Capsaicin (1.6 microg), formalin (0.5%) or prostaglandin E(2) (500 ng) did not produce the same aftersensation phenomenon. These results suggest that LOCBE-induced nociception is largely facilitated by prostaglandin production, and edematogenic response seems to be facilitated by prostanoids and histamine. Finally, LOCBE induced a state of sensitization to cold, which seemed to be specific as it was not caused by other noxious chemicals.

In 1971 Simmons et al. presented evidence that children receiving regular dialysis therapy required approximately seventy percent of recommended caloric intake to achieve normal growth. Since that time, pediatric nephrologists and dietitians have strived to meet that requirement. In an effort to attain adequate caloric intake, cyproheptadine, a known appetite stimulant, was prescribed to a child on chronic hemodialysis. The following reports the unexpected complication of toxic psychosis that resulted.

1. The effects of drugs has been studied on escape behaviour of rats following electrical stimulation of the periaqueductal grey, in order to buy periactin assess the feasibility of using the latency to escape as a measure of experimental anxiety. 2. Escape latencies were decreased by methysergide and cyproheptadine, whilst lorazepam and chlordiazepoxide (CDP) increased the latencies. 3. ACTH marginally decreased escape latencies, and did not alter the response to lorazepam. 4. Difficulties associated with using this paradigm to detect anxiolytic or anxiogenic effects of drugs are discussed.

Although there is evidence for an important role of UGT2B10 in the N-glucuronidation of drugs and other xenobiotics, the inhibitor selectivity of this enzyme is poorly understood. This study sought primarily to characterize the inhibition selectivity of UGT2B10 by UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) enzyme-selective inhibitors used for reaction phenotyping, and 34 antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs that contain an amine functional group. Initial studies demonstrated that cotinine is a highly selective substrate of human liver microsomal UGT2B10. The kinetics of cotinine N-glucuronidation by recombinant UGT and human liver microsomes (± bovine serum albumin) were consistent with the involvement of a single enzyme. Of the UGT enzyme-selective inhibitors employed for reaction phenotyping, only the UGT2B4/7 inhibitor fluconazole reduced recombinant UGT2B10 activity to an appreciable extent. The majority of antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs screened for effects on UGT2B10 inhibited enzyme activity with IC50 values <100 µM. The most potent inhibition was observed with the tricyclic antidepressants amitriptyline and doxepin and the tetracyclic antidepressant mianserin, and the structurally related compounds desloratadine and loratadine. Molecular modeling using a ligand-based approach indicated that hydrophobic and charge interactions are involved in inhibitor binding, whereas spatial features influence the potency of UGT2B10 inhibition. Respective mean Ki,u (± S.D.) buy periactin values for amitriptyline, doxepin, and mianserin inhibition of human liver microsomal UGT2B10 were 0.61 ± 0.05, 0.95 ± 0.18, and 0.43 ± 0.01 µM. In vitro-in vivo extrapolation indicates that these drugs may perpetrate inhibitory drug-drug interactions when coadministered with compounds that are cleared predominantly by UGT2B10.

The potential role of endogenous opiates in the mediation of the diarrheal actions of prostaglandin-F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha), 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) and methacholine was investigated. The interaction of the antidiarrheal agents morphine, propantheline bromide and cyproheptadine on the course of PGF2 alpha-induced diarrhea in mice was studied, as were the effects of naloxone on PGF2 alpha-, methacholine-, and 5-hydroxytryptophan-induced diarrhea. The three diarrheal agents, administered intraperitoneally, showed dose-dependent and parallel dose-response curves with the following order of decreasing potency: PGF2 alpha, methacholine and 5-HTP. Naloxone significantly inhibited the diarrhea induced by these agents. The diarrheal action of PGF2 alpha was also significantly attenuated with morphine, propantheline and buy periactin cyproheptadine. These results suggest that PGF2 alpha, methacholine and 5-HTP induce diarrhea via a common pharmacological mechanism(s) which may involve an interaction with endogenous opiate receptors. However, the antagonism of diarrhea with agents having diverse pharmacological actions would suggest that factors unrelated to an interaction with endogenous opiates may also be involved in the production of diarrhea by the diarrheagenic agents studied.

In this paper the second-derivative spectrophotometric method for the simultaneous determination of pseudoephedrine (CAS 90-82-4) in the combinations with ibuprofen (CAS 15687-27-1) and loratadine buy periactin (CAS 79794-75-5) is described. Optimal conditions for the quantitative analysis of coated tablets (Test I) and tablets (Test II) were settled. The second-derivative order of the spectra in ethanol with the wavelength modulation was used. For the quantitative assay for all of the investigated substances in the laboratory mixture or in respective pharmaceutical dosage forms the "zero-crossing" technique was applied. The authors propose this second-derivative spectrophotometry for a rapid, simple, precise and accurate determination of the mentioned tests or a corresponding multicomponent mixture.

The contribution of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) to bilateral oedema formation in the rat hindpaw following an unilateral challenge with CGRP was investigated. Rats were injected into the left hindpaw with either saline, CGRP or a CGRP antagonist (CGRP8-37). All injections were given in a double blind fashion and in a volume of 100 microl. CGRP and CGRP8-37 were administered in concentrations of 75, 150 or 300 pmol. Volumes of the right and left hindpaw were measured every hour for 5 h by plethysmometry. Injection of CGRP 300 pmol into the left hindpaw resulted in a bilaterally increased hindpaw volume after 5 h as compared with the groups given saline. No changes were found in hindpaw volumes following the injection of either 75 or 150 pmol of CGRP or 75, 150 or 300 pmol of CGRP8-37 as compared with saline injection. To elucidate whether or not the bilateral oedema formation was related to a release of endogenous CGRP, microdialysis of the contralateral hindpaw was carried out, and concentrations of CGRP-like immunoreactivity (-LI) were determined by radioimmunoassay and high performance liquid chromatography. Injection of CGRP 300 pmol into the left hindpaw increased the release of CGRP-LI into the right hindpaw perfusate after 4 and 5 h. No changes in CGRP-LI were detected in the right hindpaw perfusate following challenge with saline or CGRP8-37. To study the contribution of the nervous system to the contralateral release of CGRP-LI, sciatic nerve ligated and intact sham-operated rats were used. Sciatic nerve ligation but not sham-operation on the non-injected side abolished the increased release of CGRP-LI following contralateral administration of CGRP 300 pmol. To study the spinal cord mechanisms resulting in the bilateral oedema formation following unilateral challenge with 300 pmol of CGRP, intrathecal pretreatment with either 10 nmol bicuculline (GABA(A) receptor antagonist) or 10 nmol CGRP8-37 was carried out. Bicuculline but not CGRP8-37 abolished the bilateral oedema formation induced by CGRP 300 pmol. In order to study the mechanisms by which administration of CGRP 300 pmol induces oedema, CGRP 300 pmol was administered concomitantly with either 300 pmol of CGRP8-37 (CGRP receptor antagonist), or 3 nmol of promethazine (H1 receptor antagonist), or 3 nmol of s(-)-propranolol (5-HT1 receptor antagonist), or 3 nmol of cyproheptadine (5-HT2 receptor antagonist) or 3 nmol of ICS 205-930 (5-HT3 receptor antagonist). Oedema formation was measured at 1, 5, 7 and 24 h. Injection of CGRP 300 pmol into the left hindpaw induced a bilateral oedema formation which was still significant at 24 h. Concomitant administration of either CGRP8-37, ICS 205-920 or cyproheptadine blocked the oedema formation at 24 h. No effect on oedema formation was found when CGRP 300 pmol was co-administered with either promethazine or buy periactin s(-)-propranolol (H1 and 5-HT1 receptor antagonists, respectively). The results of the present study show that both the nervous system and local inflammatory processes contribute to bilateral hindpaw oedema formation following unilateral challenge with CGRP 300 pmol. Our results indicate that endogenous release of CGRP following inflammatory response may play an important role in inducing oedema formation.

There were 2,089 patients in the population analyzed: 749, 739 and 601 patients in the ebastine 20 mg, loratadine 10 mg and placebo groups, respectively. Compared to baseline, overall mean daily reflective TSS over the first 2 weeks of treatment was -3.61 (35.4% reduction from baseline) in the ebastine group, -3.05 (29.0% reduction) in the loratadine group and -2.30 (22.7% reduction) in the placebo group. Statistically significant differences in the mean change from baseline were found when comparing ebastine and loratadine (p<0.001), ebastine and placebo (p<0.0001), and loratadine and placebo (p<0.0001). The global effect (i.e. the difference in overall mean daily reflective TSS over the first 2 weeks of treatment) of ebastine compared with loratadine over the first 2 weeks of treatment was -0.56 (95% confidence interval, CI, -0.86 buy periactin to -0.26), and it was sustained during the whole (4-week) period studied. The global effects of ebastine and loratadine compared with placebo were -1.30 (95% CI, -1.61 to -0.99) and -0.74 (95% CI, -1.05 to -0.43), respectively. Secondary variables (reflective and snapshot individual symptom scores) showed the same trend.

Drugs of the pizotifen type (pizotifen, cyproheptadine), possessing high H1-antihistamine and high antiserotonin activities in animal experiments, exert potent inhibitory actions on the passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) reaction in the rat. The drug pipethiadene, a 4,9-dihydrothieno(2,3-c)-2-benzothiepin derivative also belongs to this group. Selective histamine H1-antagonists alone are unable to cause pronounced reduction of the intensity of the PCA reaction in buy periactin the rat, but in local reactions induced in rats by compound 48/80, histamine H1-receptors seem to play major role.

113 cases of accidental ingestion of cyproheptadine (Nuran) by children have been evaluated. Life threatening alterations have not been observed after doses ranging from 0.3-6.15 (x:1.89) mg per kg of body weight. Somnolence, excitation, hallucinations, ataxia, tachycardia, and muscle twitchings were observed frequently, and occasionally gastric pain, dry mucuous surfaces, mydriasis, and rubeosis of the face were present. Symptoms appeared rapidly after ingestion and generally did not last longer than 6-12 h. When given in therapeutic doses, cyproheptadine reduces the secretion of ACTH, cortisol, prolactin, and growth hormone, lowers blood glucose concentrations, and raises the levels of unesterified free fatty acids. Parents frequently complain about buy periactin unsatisfactory eating habits of their children, but chronic lack of appetite needing therapeutical attention, in healthy children, is the rare exception. Cyproheptadine is an agent with considerable side effects, and it should be prescribed to children only after very careful deliberation.

Pretreatment with an oral dose (45 mg/kg) of cyproheptadine (CPH), a drug that inhibits secretion and synthesis of insulin. 3 hr before alloxan (100 mg/kg, iv) protects mice from the permanent diabetes produced by alloxan. Pretreated animals at the time of alloxan administration were hyperglycemic. Therefore, the possibility that CPH-induced hyperglycemia protected mice from alloxan was investigated. This was accomplished by giving mannoheptulose (a glucose antagonist) or insulin (to lower blood glucose) after CPH and before alloxan. These interventions eliminated CPH-induced protection from alloxan, indicating a role for CPH-induced hyperglycemia in the protective effect. To confirm that CPH does not protect mice from buy periactin alloxan-induced diabetes by a direct action, in vitro experiments using isolated pancreatic islets were conducted. Mouse islets were pretreated with CPH, its metabolite desmethylcyproheptadine (DMCPH), or an equal mixture of the two and/or various concentrations of glucose prior to an acute exposure to a toxic concentration of alloxan. Glucose-stimulated insulin release was used as a measure of pancreatic beta-cell function after alloxan exposure. CPH or DMCPH (alone or in combination) pretreatment did not provide protection against alloxan-induced inhibition of insulin release nor did pretreatments potentiate the protective action of glucose against in vitro alloxan toxicity. The results indicate that the protective action of CPH when given to mice before alloxan is due to drug-induced hyperglycemia and not to a direct effect of CPH or its metabolite.

The effect of cyproheptadine on plasma growth hormone and cortisol levels was studied in seven male volunteers with polygraphic sleep monitoring. Sleep-related growth hormone release was completely inhibited in three of the seven normal subjects by the intravenous infusion of cyproheptadine (5 mg) which was started at the onset of sleep. In the other four, growth hormone release during sleep was significantly decreased or delayed by cyproheptadine when the drug infusion was started at 7:00 p.m., 1-2 h before the onset of sleep. The usual increase in plasma cortisol in the early morning was completely suppressed in all five subjects given cyproheptadine infusions from 4:00 to 7:00 a.m. The intravenous infusion of cyproheptadine increased slow wave sleep, although the time from sleep onset to the first occurrence of buy periactin slow wave sleep was not affected. In contrast, rapid eye movement sleep was significantly decreased by cyproheptadine. These results suggest that cyproheptadine inhibits growth hormone and ACTH secretion during sleep in man, possibly by antagonizing serotoninergic mechanisms although other actions of the drug are not ruled out.

Histamine has been studied in both health and disease since the initial description a century ago. With its vasodilative effect, it was suggested early on to be involved in the pathophysiology of migraine. Over the past 25 years, much has been learned about histamine as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The role of this neurotransmitter system in Nolvadex 20mg Online migraine has not been previously reviewed.

Hexarelin (HEX) is a synthetic GH-secretagogue (GHS) which acts on specific receptors either at the pituitary or the hypothalamic level to stimulate GH release both in animal and in man. Like other GHS, HEX possesses also PRL-, ACTH- and cortisol (F)-releasing activity but the mechanisms underlying these effects are even less clear. On the other hand, galanin (GAL) and serotonin play Ivermectin Stromectol Buy an important role in the neural control of GH, PRL and ACTH secretion both in animal and in man. In order to study the interaction between HEX and GAL and to verify whether serotoninergic mechanisms underly the endocrine effects of GHS, in 12 normal young volunteers (24-30 yr) the following tests were performed: group A (N = 5), HEX (2.0 micrograms/kg i.v. at 0 min), GAL (15.0 micrograms/kg i.v. from 0 to 60 min) and HEX + GAL; group B (N = 7), HEX alone and preceeded by cyproeptadine (CYPRO, 8 mg os at -60 min). In group A, the GH response to HEX (1204.2 +/- 312.9 micrograms*min/L) was higher (p < 0.05) than that to GAL alone (305.6 +/- 35.5 micrograms*min/L) and was not modified by GAL co-administration (1021.8 +/- 249.9 micrograms*min/L). PRL secretion was increased to the same extent by HEX and GAL (507.9 +/- 81.1 and 743.0 +/- 164.7 micrograms*min/L) which showed no interaction (603.5 +/- 75.7 micrograms*min/L). HEX elicited an increase in both ACTH and F secretion (924.5 +/- 169.7 pg*min/ml and 6131.3 +/- 616.6 micrograms*min/L) while GAL had no effect when given alone (759.5 +/- 185.5 pg*min/ml and 5350.3 +/- 755.6 micrograms*min/L) and did not modify the effect of HEX (891.3 +/- 159.2 pg*min/ml and 5877.8 +/- 554.4 micrograms*min/L). In group B, the GH response to HEX (1636.4 +/- 267.5 micrograms*min/L) was blunted by CYPRO (1164.8 +/- 212.3 micrograms*min/L) but this difference did not attained statistical significance. On the other hand, CYPRO did not modify the HEX-induced PRL (599.5 +/- 129.2 vs 638.9 +/- 131.9 micrograms*min/L), ACTH (1282.8 +/- 222.0 vs 1330.2 +/- 347.0 pg*min/ml) and F response (4738.3 +/- 355.3 vs 4580.9 +/- 857.3 micrograms*min/L). Our present data demonstrate that Hexarelin has no interaction with galanin; thus thereotically, the stimulatory effect of GHS on GH and PRL secretion could involve, at least partially, a galanin-mediated mechanism. On the other hand, our data demonstrate that serotonin does not mediate the stimulatory effect of GHS on PRL, ACTH and cortisol; the intrinsic anticholinergic property of cyproeptadine could account for the trend toward its blunting effect on the GH response to Hexarelin.

The antiparkinsonian drug amantadine HCl caused a dose-dependent depression of electrical Asacol Pediatric Dosage self-stimulation, followed by a dose-dependent enhancement. Neither action was correlated with the differential effects of d- and l-amphetamine at different implantation sites. The initial depression was not prevented by pretreatment with anticholinergic or antiserotonergic agents nor by depression of catecholamine (CA) synthesis. The stimulant effects of amantadine and d-amphetamine summated but did not interact, response rates after d-amphetamine being augmented by pretreatment with amantadine except at intervals at which amantadine was by itself depressant. It is concluded that the initial effect of amantadien is caused by impulse-independent release of a pool of intraneuronal CA, causing dissociation between reinforcement signals and the rat's responses. This is followed by amphetamine-like facilitation of impulse-dependent release; the first action depresses performance, the second enhances it.

In the present study, a large-scale retrospective case review was undertaken to assess the incidence and type of sexual dysfunctions associated with serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) therapy, in addition to the effects of three pharmacological antidotes (yohimbine, amantadine, cyproheptadine) on SRI-induced sexual dysfunctions. A retrospective chart review was conducted on 596 patients treated with SRIs in an outpatient psychiatric practice between July 1991 and September 1994. Patients who reported new-onset sexual dysfunction during this time were categorized as having SRI-induced sexual dysfunctions. Sexual difficulties were characterized by type and duration, and the background characteristics and psychiatric diagnoses of all patients were recorded. Psychiatric outcome and sexual functioning at follow-up were independently assessed by a single psychiatrist by means of a 4-point rating Lanoxin Dosage scale. Sexual dysfunction symptoms were clearly associated with SRI administration in 97 (16.3%) cases. The most common problems reported were orgasmic delay or anorgasmia and hypoactive sexual desire. Sexual difficulties were more frequent among men (23.4%) and married patients of both sexes (22.3%), whereas psychiatric diagnosis and type of SRI were unrelated to the occurrence of sexual problems. Of the patients with sexual dysfunction, 45 (46.4%) opted for a trial of antidote therapy with yohimbine, amantadine, or cyproheptadine. All three antidotes were found to be safe and relatively effective, although yohimbine was significantly more effective than amantadine or cyproheptadine in reversing SRI-induced sexual dysfunction.

Seventeen of 413 initially identified records were fully assessed for eligibility. Ten trials involving 2573 patients overall met the inclusion criteria and entered the analysis. Their internal validity was satisfactory. Data synthesis showed that rupatadine is superior to placebo in relieving the overall Uroxatral Maximum Dosage allergy symptoms on reflective (SMD: -0.37, 95% CI -0.46 to -0.27; p < 0.00001) and instantaneous (SMD: -0.41, 95% CI -0.71 to -0.11; p = 0.007) assessment, the nasal symptoms considered together (reflective SMD: -0.36, 95% CI -0.48 to -0.25; p < 0.00001; instantaneous SMD: -0.39, 95% CI -0.61 to -0.17; p = 0.0004) or individually and ocular symptoms. Inter-study heterogeneity was low for the main outcomes and the risk of publication bias was judged as unlikely. A number of secondary endpoints were favorably affected by rupatadine. No difference was observed in the incidence of total adverse reactions between rupatadine and placebo (OR 1.23, 95% CI 0.95 to 1.59; p = 0.12).

The effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5HT) and noradrenaline (NA) have been studied on rat anococcygeus muscle. 1. 5HT and NA produced a dose-dependent contraction of rat anococcygeus muscle. Cyproheptadine (1.0 X 10(-6) M), a specific 5HT receptor blocker, failed to inhibit the responses to either 5HT or NA. 2. However, phentolamine, a specific alpha receptor antagonist competitively blocked the responses to 5HT and NA. 3. The responses to 5HT were inhibited in the reserpinized (5 mg/kg i.p. 24 h) and 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) pre-treated preparations. 6-OHDA produced a leftward shift of the dose-response curve of NA. Reserpine pre-treatment potentiated lower doses of NA and the threshold dose of NA was significantly decreased. 4. Nialamide (2.2 x 10(-6) M), the mono-amine oxidase inhibitor produced a significant leftward shift of the dose-response curve of both 5HT and NA. Pyrogallol (2.3 x 10(-5) M), the catechol-o-methyl transferase inhibitor also potentiated the responses to both 5HT and NA, but the potentiation was significant at lower doses of 5HT and NA. 5. Our data suggest that 5HT- and NA-induced contractions in rat anococcygeus muscle are mediated through common alpha adrenoceptors. 5HT actions are probably indirect, mediated through the release of NA.

In a model of conditioned feeding behavior, oral administration of cyproheptadine (1-100 mg/kg), 30 min before presentation of food, produced a dose-dependent reduction of food intake in the rat (ED50 congruent to 17 mg/kg during the 1st h of testing). This anorexic effect persisted for at least 24 h. These results provide further evidence that under certain conditions cyproheptadine, which is used as an orectic agent in man, can produce anorexia.

The results showed that TM-N49 provoked a dose dependent increase in microvascular leakage in the skin of rats. The potency of TM-N49 in induction of skin edema appeared similar potency of bradykinin and histamine. Pretreatment of rats with compound 48/80 diminished TM-N49 induced skin reaction and reduced mast cell numbers in rats. Ginkgolide B and cyproheptadine, but not terfenadine and quinacrine, inhibited TM-N49 elicited microvascular leakage when they were co-injected with the stimulus to rat skin. Moreover, TM-N49 was found to induce histamine release from human colon, lung and tonsil mast cells, and both metabolic inhibitors and pertussis toxin were capable of inhibiting TM-N49 elicited histamine release. TM-N49 induced mast cell accumulation in the peritoneum of mice, which was inhibited by co-injection of ginkgolide B, cyproheptadine and terfenadine. Intravenous injection of monoclonal antibodies against CD18, ICAM-1 and CD11a also blocked TM-N49 induced mast cell accumulation.

To better understand off-target effects of widely prescribed psychoactive drugs, we performed a comprehensive series of chemogenomic screens using the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model system. Because the known human targets of these drugs do not exist in yeast, we could employ the yeast gene deletion collections and parallel fitness profiling to explore potential off-target effects in a genome-wide manner. Among 214 tested, documented psychoactive drugs, we identified 81 compounds that inhibited wild-type yeast growth and were thus selected for genome-wide fitness profiling. Many of these drugs had a propensity to affect multiple cellular functions. The sensitivity profiles of half of the analyzed drugs were enriched for core cellular processes such as secretion, protein folding, RNA processing, and chromatin structure. Interestingly, fluoxetine (Prozac) interfered with establishment of cell polarity, cyproheptadine (Periactin) targeted essential genes with chromatin-remodeling roles, while paroxetine (Paxil) interfered with essential RNA metabolism genes, suggesting potential secondary drug targets. We also found that the more recently developed atypical antipsychotic clozapine (Clozaril) had no fewer off-target effects in yeast than the typical antipsychotics haloperidol (Haldol) and pimozide (Orap). Our results suggest that model organism pharmacogenetic studies provide a rational foundation for understanding the off-target effects of clinically important psychoactive agents and suggest a rational means both for devising compound derivatives with fewer side effects and for tailoring drug treatment to individual patient genotypes.
