Two putative markers of serotonergic function, the concentrations of the serotonin metabolite 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) and the binding parameters of [3H]imipramine to blood platelets, are discussed. Pretreatment concentrations of 5-HIAA in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are lower in depressed patients than in normal controls, and a low concentration of the metabolite is associated with an increased risk of suicide. Many studies have attempted to use pretreatment concentrations of 5-HIAA, of the noradrenaline metabolite 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG) and of the dopamine metabolite homovanillic acid (HVA) as predictors of therapeutic effect. On the whole, HVA appears to predict the effects of diverse treatments rather better than 5-HIAA. Treatment with antidepressant drugs changes the amine metabolite concentrations in the CSF in a relatively predictable way. Thus, administration of selective inhibitors of serotonin uptake has a more profound effect on CSF 5-HIAA, while noradrenaline uptake inhibitors preferentially reduce CSF MHPG concentrations. The Bmax of [3H]imipramine binding to blood platelets has been found to be lower in untreated depressed patients than in healthy controls in several studies. In a study from our group, three weeks' treatment with the serotonin uptake blockers zimeldine and alaproclate increased Bmax, while neither nortriptyline nor electroconvulsive treatment caused any change in Bmax after this time period. One year after initiation of treatment, patients who had clinically recovered and were no longer taking drugs still had a low Bmax of [3H]imipramine platelet binding. Prophylactic lithium caused a significant, but transient decrease in the Bmax of platelet [3H]imipramine binding in euthymic bipolar patients.

This study has demonstrated the good pharmacotherapeutic response of persistent myofascial pain, even in more severe cases. Not being a randomized controlled trial, the results may be biased and should be interpreted with caution. Patients who do not respond to TCAs may be a distinct subgroup and this needs further investigation. The results also suggest that gabapentin, at a lower dose than previously reported, is a good alternative in TCA-resistant patients.

Although antidepressants have been used in the management of several types of chronic pain there have been no systematic trials of these medications in women with chronic pelvic pain. The authors report on the use of nortriptyline in fourteen women with chronic pelvic pain. Seven women dropped out of the study. These seven subjects were significantly different from the treated group only in lower tolerance of antidepressant side effects. Six of the seven treated subjects reported complete or partial relief from pain. Fifty seven percent of the drop-outs and the one nonresponding treated subject had histories of childhood sexual abuse. This open trial suggests that antidepressants may be effective in the treatment of some women with chronic pelvic pain. However, the frequent association of sexual abuse with this disorder indicates that accepted treatment trial designs may need to be altered.

The use of mathematically enhanced ultraviolet/visible (UV/VIS) absorbance spectral analysis and spectral contrast software techniques in high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and micellar electrokinetic capillary electrophoresis (MECC) as an aid for the determination of peak homogeneity, identification, and tracking during method development was investigated. Various structurally similar pharmaceutical compounds, and compounds present as either cis/trans isomers, diastereomers, or enantiomers were used as test compounds to probe the limits of this technique. Two tricyclic antidepressants, nortriptyline and imipramine, were employed to study the effects of HPLC mobile phase composition and pH on the ability to identify and track peaks during method development. It was found that method changes altered the spectral matches used for identification, but not enough to cause incorrect peak identification. It was also shown using HPLC that the cis/trans isomers of doxepin and the diastereomers ephedrine and pseudoephedrine could be distinguished. The mathematically enhanced spectral analysis and spectral contrast software techniques were also employed with MECC. Peaks tracking during method development as pH and the concentration of surfactant changes is shown for a separation of various penicillin type antibiotics. It was shown that during chiral MECC (CMECC) analyses ephedrine/pseudoephedrine diastereomers as well as ephedrine enantiomers could be distinguished. The determination of enantiomers is possible in CMECC since enantiomers are eluted as diastereomeric complexes, as opposed to HPLC where they are eluted in their native state.

The single and the competitive equilibrium isotherms of nortriptyline and amytriptyline were acquired by frontal analysis (FA) on the C18- bonded discovery column, using a 28/72 (v/v) mixture of acetonitrile and water buffered with phosphate (20 mM, pH 2.70). The adsorption energy distributions (AED) of each compound were calculated from the raw adsorption data. Both the fitting of the adsorption data using multi-linear regression analysis and the AEDs are consistent with a trimodal isotherm model. The single-component isotherm data fit well to the tri-Langmuir isotherm model. The extension to a competitive two-component tri-Langmuir isotherm model based on the best parameters of the single-component isotherms does not account well for the breakthrough curves nor for the overloaded band profiles measured for mixtures of nortriptyline and amytriptyline. However, it was possible to derive adjusted parameters of a competitive tri-Langmuir model based on the fitting of the adsorption data obtained for these mixtures. A very good agreement was then found between the calculated and the experimental overloaded band profiles of all the mixtures injected.

Depression is associated with more rapid cognitive decline in Parkinson's disease. The goal of this study was to examine the impact of the acute (8-week) and longer-term (24-week) antidepressant treatment on cognition in Parkinson's disease and to detail cognitive predictors of treatment response. Fifty-two depressed Parkinson's disease patients were enrolled in an NIH-funded randomized, controlled trial of nortriptyline, paroxetine, and placebo. Neuropsychological testing was performed at baseline and weeks 8 and 24. Higher baseline scores on measures of executive functioning, speed of processing, and verbal memory were associated with antidepressant response. Treatment responders did not exhibit larger gains in cognition than nonresponders. Findings warrant replication.

In this randomized, single-blind clinical trial we compared the efficacy of parenteral vitamin B(12) and nortriptyline, for symptomatic improvement of pain, paresthesia, burning, freezing, stabbing and electrical sensation. Changes in nerve conduction parameters of amplitude, duration and latency were also compared.

pamelor drug interactions

ADRs reported with antidepressant treatment were categorised using their likely pharmacological basis; adrenergic, cholinergic, serotonergic and histaminergic. To identify genetic predictors of susceptibility to each group of ADRs, a candidate gene analysis was performed with data from 431 depressed patients (from a total sample size of 811 patients) enrolled in the Genome-Based Therapeutic Drugs for Depression (GENDEP) project, who were randomly allocated to receive treatment with escitalopram or nortriptyline. Data from 474 patients treated with citalopram or reboxetine in the GenPod project (total sample of 601 patients) were used for replication of significant findings.

The cases had taken dothiepin (16 patients), doxepin (six patients), thioridazine (five patients), amitriptyline (five patients), nortriptyline (three patients), imipramine (one patient) and a combination of dothiepin and thioridazine (three patients). In 20 of the 39 patients with arrhythmias, the arrhythmia had been a presumed ventricular tachycardia. Of the other 19 patients, 15 patients had a supraventricular tachycardia, two patients had cardiac arrests (one asystole, one without ECG monitoring) and two patients had insufficient data recorded to make classification of the arrhythmias possible. The QRS was >/= 100 ms in 82% of cases but also in 76% of controls. QRS >/= 160 ms had a sensitivity of only 13% and occurred in 2% of controls. QRS > 120 ms, QTc > 500 and the R/S ratio in aVR appeared to have a stronger association with the occurrence of arrhythmia: QRS > 120 ms (odds ratio [OR], 3.56; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.46-8.68), QTc > 500 (OR, 3.07; 95% CI, 1.33-7.07), and R/S ratio in aVR > 0.7 (OR, 16; 95% CI, 3.47-74). Excluding thioridazine overdoses and performing the analysis for tricyclic antidepressant overdoses alone gave increased odds ratios for QRS > 120 ms (OR, 4.83; 95% CI, 1.73-13.5) and QTc > 500 (OR, 4.5; 95% CI, 1.56-13) but had little effect on that for the R/S ratio in aVR > 0.7 (OR, 14.5; 95% CI, 3.10-68).

Twenty-seven depressed patients (26% of whom were female and whose average age was 73 years) who had congestive heart failure, conduction disease, and/or ventricular arrhythmia were studied in an open medication trial of fluoxetine, up to 60 mg/day, for 7 weeks. The main outcome measures were heart rate and rhythm measured by 24-hour ECG recordings, ejection fraction determined by radionuclide angiography, cardiac conduction intervals, and blood pressure. Baseline values were compared with those at weeks 2 and 7 of fluoxetine treatment. In 60 comparable patients, values of these same cardiovascular measures at baseline and after 3 weeks of treatment with a tricyclic antidepressant, nortriptyline, were also examined.

Antidepressant properties of the noncompetitive nAChR antagonist mecamylamine in the forced swim test were tested alone and in combination with the tricyclic antidepressant amitriptyline. Mice lacking high-affinity nAChRs were tested in three behavioral models to determine whether these receptors are required for behavioral effects of amitriptyline in common models of antidepressant action. Finally, the brains of wild-type and knockout animals treated with amitriptyline were examined to determine whether high-affinity nAChRs are required for antidepressant-induced increases in hippocampal cell proliferation.

The results of this study show the quantitative importance of the CYP2D6 genotype, especially the presence of multiple functional CYP2D6 genes for the pharmacokinetics of nortriptyline and 10-hydroxynortriptyline. Genotyping of subjects with multiple copies of functional genes may be of great value for differentiating ultrarapid metabolizers from patients who do not comply with the prescription and for assuring adequate drug choice and dosage for these patients.

The kinetic performance of a bare silica and C18 phase prepared from the same sub-2μm and 3.5μm base materials were compared in the HILIC and RP mode using both charged and neutral solutes. The HILIC column was characterised using the neutral solute 5-hydroxymethyluridine, the weak base cytosine, and the strong base nortriptyline, the latter having sufficient retention also in the RP mode to allow comparison of performance. Naphthalene was also used as a simple neutral substance to evaluate the RP column alone. The retention factors of all substances were adjusted to give similar values (k'∼5.5) at their respective optimum linear velocities. Reduced van Deemter b-coefficients (determined by curve fitting and by the peak parking method, using a novel procedure involving switching to a dummy column) were significantly lower in HILIC for all substances compared with those found under RP conditions. Against expectation, c-coefficients were always lower in RP when compared with HILIC using sub-2μm particles. While measurement of these coefficients is complicated by retention shifts caused by the influence of high pressure and by frictional heating effects, broadly similar results were obtained on larger particle (3.5μm) phases. The mechanism of the separations was further investigated by examining the effect of buffer concentration on retention. It was concluded that HILIC can sometimes show somewhat inferior performance to RP for fast analysis at high mobile phase velocity, but clearly shows advantages when high column efficiencies, using longer columns at low flow velocity, are employed. The latter result is attributable to the lower viscosity of the mobile phase in HILIC and the reduced pressure requirement as well as the lower b-coefficients.

Aldo-keto reductases (AKR) form an enzyme superfamily catalyzing the reduction of carbonyl compounds and in some cases the reverse oxidation of alcohols as well. In particular, a role in drug metabolism has been considered for the AKR1C family, but published data failed to reveal low Km drug substrates. Moreover, structure activity relationships using chemically related substrates have not been established. In the present investigation, a modified procedure was developed for the isolation of AKR1C1, 1C2, and 1C4 (dihydrodiol dehydrogenases 1, 2, and 4) from human liver cytosol along with carbonyl reductase (EC, a member of the short-chain alcohol dehydrogenase superfamily. The kinetics of NADPH-dependent reduction by the closely related enzymes AKR1C1 and 1C2 were studied with the structurally similar substrates (R)- and (S)-ketotifen and E- and Z-10-oxonortriptyline by HPLC measurement of the products. Km values varied between 2.6 and 53 microM and Vmax values between 5 and 313 mU/mg protein; substrate inhibition with Ki around 30 microM occurred in the reduction of E- and Z-10-oxonortriptyline by AKR1C1. The reactions were strictly stereospecific with production of one enantiomeric alcohol from each ketotifen enantiomer and of the (+)-enantiomers of E- and Z-10-hydroxynortriptyline. Enzymatic NADP+ -dependent oxidation of the alcohols mirrored the reduction with regard to stereochemical specificity. All four ketones were no or poor substrates of carbonyl reductase, whereas haloperidol was reduced by this enzyme with low affinity, but high efficiency.

STAR*D is a multisite, prospective, randomized, multistep clinical trial of outpatients with nonpsychotic major depressive disorder. The study compares various treatment options for those who do not attain a satisfactory response with citalopram, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressant. The study enrolls 4000 adults (ages 18-75) from both primary and specialty care practices who have not had either a prior inadequate response or clear-cut intolerance to a robust trial of protocol treatments during the current major depressive episode. After receiving citalopram (level 1), participants without sufficient symptomatic benefit are eligible for randomization to level 2 treatments, which entail four switch options (sertraline, bupropion, venlafaxine, cognitive therapy) and three citalopram augment options (bupropion, buspirone, cognitive therapy). Those who receive cognitive therapy (switch or augment options) at level 2 without sufficient improvement are eligible for randomization to one of two level 2A switch options (venlafaxine or bupropion). Level 2 and 2A participants are eligible for random assignment to two switch options (mirtazapine or nortriptyline) and to two augment options (lithium or thyroid hormone) added to the primary antidepressant (citalopram, bupropion, sertraline, or venlafaxine) (level 3). Those without sufficient improvement at level 3 are eligible for level 4 random assignment to one of two switch options (tranylcypromine or the combination of mirtazapine and venlafaxine). The primary outcome is the clinician-rated, 17-item Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression, administered at entry and exit from each treatment level through telephone interviews by assessors masked to treatment assignments. Secondary outcomes include self-reported depressive symptoms, physical and mental function, side-effect burden, client satisfaction, and health care utilization and cost. Participants with an adequate symptomatic response may enter the 12-month naturalistic follow-up phase with brief monthly and more complete quarterly assessments.

The patients' genotype distribution for TT, GT, and GG was 9, 24, and 47 subjects, respectively. Mean NO level in patients with TT genotype was less in comparison to GT and GG genotypes before and after use of TCAs (P < 0.05). Mean intensity of headaches in patients with TT genotype was lower in comparison to GT and GG genotypes before and after use of TCAs (based on verbal numerical rating scale). Mean frequency of migraine attacks after use of TCAs was significantly decreased in all genotypes of NOS3 Glu298Asp polymorphism particularly in TT genotype (P < 0.05).

Our study indicates that without active treatment, virtually all remitted patients relapse within 6 months of stopping ECT. Monotherapy with nortriptyline has limited efficacy. The combination of nortriptyline and lithium is more effective, but the relapse rate is still high, particularly during the first month of continuation therapy.

The goal of this article is to provide a life-cycle perspective on the treatment of major depressive episodes in later life. Our studies have suggested that older patients appear to benefit as much, though perhaps more slowly, than mid-life patients from acute combined treatment (nortriptyline+interpersonal psychotherapy) of major depression. Given also the apparently higher relapse rate among the elderly, however, continuation treatment needs to be vigorous and closely monitored. The occurrence of severe life events prior to the index episode and the co-existence of an anxiety disorder both appear to prolong treatment response times, while chronic medical burden per se neither compromises response rates nor prolongs time to response. Self-rated perception of health improves with remission of depression in the elderly. As in mid-life patients, both antidepressant medication (nortriptyline) and interpersonal psychotherapy appear to possess chronic efficacy with respect to the prevention of recurrent episodes and prolongation of wellness. Finally, treatment of depression in the elderly results in improved quality of life, especially in domains of well being and coping. Particular challenges in the treatment of elderly patients are noncompliance and the prevention of suicide. The latter is closely linked to feelings of hopelessness, and these may be persistent in some patients.

Plasma levels of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH) were determined in 16 unmedicated patients with major depressive episodes (nonpsychotic) and in an equal number of normal subjects, before and after 4 weeks of treatment with tricyclic antidepressants. Some eight patients were treated with amitriptyline, and the remainder received desipramine. The controls remained medication free during the entire experimental period. Degrees of depression were quantified before and after treatment with the Hamilton Rating Scale of Depression (HRSD). There were no significant differences between the depressed patients and the controls on levels of DBH. Similarly, there were no within-group, pre-posttreatment differences on the enzyme levels in either group. Pre- and posttreatment HRSD scores did not correlate with corresponding plasma DBH levels. Plasma levels of amitriptyline, nortriptyline (product of amitriptyline in the body), and desipramine at the end of 4 weeks of treatment also failed to correlate with the enzyme levels.

An understanding of the effects of antidepressants on sleep can be aided by determinations of tricyclic plasma levels in relationship to sleep. Previous studies have been established that steady state plasma levels of amitriptyline relate to certain aspects of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. The present investigations attempt to replicate the REM sleep/tricyclic plasma level relationships in a larger group of psychiatric hospitalized patients for depression and to study whether such relationships persist in a group of ambulatory patients studied longitudinally for 1 to 2 years. In an acute treatment study of 38 patients, REM sleep percent and average REM activity demonstrated a significant relationship with plasma levels, even when controlled for age and severity. The sleep-plasma level relationships seem more prominent with amitriptyline levels than with nortriptyline plasma levels. In a long term buy pamelor online comparison of plasma levels, tricyclic plasma levels showed a significant correlation with REM latency, REM percent and average REM activity. Thus, it appears that changes in REM sleep such as REM suppression correlate significantly with tricyclic plasma levels both on a short (4 weeks) and long term basis (1 to 2 years). The implications of these findings are discussed.

Biological fluids such as urine, saliva and whole blood were analyzed for contents of drugs by a new combination of desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (DESI-MS) and thin liquid membrane extraction (TLME). Analytes from the sample were extracted into a thin liquid membrane of hexadecane deposited on a porous Teflon membrane, from which they were subsequently analyzed directly by DESI. The total analysis time was 15 minutes for analysis of several samples with a potential analysis time of less than a minute per sample. Thanks to the pre-concentration and sample clean-up built into the method, methadone was detected in urine in full-scan mode with an LOD of 4 ng mL(-1), while amitriptyline, nortriptyline and pethidine showed LODs of 17 ng mL(-1). Quantification was possible for several basic drugs using one common internal standard, providing relative accuracies in the range of 10-30%. A reliability test was performed on 20 samples with methadone buy pamelor online , amitriptyline, nortriptyline and pethidine in urine, showing that none of the samples having concentrations above the LOD were missed and no false positives were found. Diphenhydramine and one of its metabolites were detected in authentic samples of urine and saliva, and methadone was detected from a whole-blood sample spiked to a concentration of 100 ng mL(-1). The method has several advantages, such as extremely low price in consumables, the possibility of fast analysis of very crude biofluids such as whole blood and the potential for a very high sample throughput.

The ADx total serum tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) fluorescence polarization immunoassay (Abbott Diagnostics) for the semi-quantitation of imipramine or amitriptyline and their respective N-demethylated metabolites in cases of TCA overdose was evaluated. The assay is linear from 75-1000 ng/mL total TCA in serum, and flaggs as "HI" all results exceeding 300 ng/mL. The within and between run precision of the assay for patient serum containing imipramine or amitriptyline and their metabolites gave CV's of less than 5.5% and 8.9%, respectively. A good correlation between the results of patient serum containing imipramine and desipramine simultaneously analyzed by ADx and gas liquid chromatography (GC) was observed, r2 = 0.964, n = 32. Results of patient serum containing amitriptyline and nortriptyline or doxepin and desmethyldoxepin analyzed by ADx and GC or GC-mass spectrometry buy pamelor online were not well correlated; r2 = 0.738, n = 44 and r2 = 0.695, n = 21, respectively. The assay consistently flagged as "HI" serum with total imipramine and desipramine concentrations above 300 ng/mL by GC, and serum with greater than 360 ng/mL of amitriptyline and nortriptyline by GC/MS. No significant cross-reactivity was observed for drugs other than the TCA.

The literature on acoustic measures of voice in depression is reviewed. Authors have separated results derived from studies of automatic speech, such as counting or reading, from free speech. Free speech requires cognitive activity such as word finding and discourse planning in addition to the motor activity of automatic speech. Also, results have been less ambiguous if homogeneous groups of agitated or retarded buy pamelor online depressed patients were examined.

Thirty-one elderly depressed patients were treated for seven weeks with nortriptyline with plasma levels kept between 50-180 ng/ml. Electrocardiograms were taken at the third and seventh weeks of treatment. There were significant increases in the PR interval, QTc interval, and heart rate from before and after treatment. However, there were no consistent correlations between electrocardiographic changes during treatment buy pamelor online and plasma levels of nortriptyline, 10-hydroxynortriptyline and either of its two isomers (E-10-hydroxynortriptyline, Z-10-hydroxynortriptyline). Increased QRS duration after seven weeks of treatment was correlated with daily dose of nortriptyline.

This study reports the pharmacokinetics of oral amitriptyline and its active metabolite nortriptyline in Greyhound dogs. Five healthy Greyhound dogs were enrolled in a randomized crossover design. A single oral dose of amitriptyline hydrochloride (actual mean dose 8.1 per kg) was administered to fasted or fed dogs. Blood samples were collected at predetermined times from 0 to 24 h after administration, and plasma drug concentrations were measured by liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry. Noncompartmental pharmacokinetic analyses were performed. Two dogs in the fasted group vomited following amitriptyline administration and were excluded from analysis. The range of amitriptyline CMAX for the remaining fasted dogs (n = 3) was 22.8-64.5 ng/mL compared to 30.6-127 ng/mL for the fed dogs (n = 5). The range of the amitriptyline AUCINF for the three fasted dogs was 167-720 h·ng/mL compared to 287-1146 h·ng/mL for fed dogs. The relative bioavailability of amitriptyline in fasted dogs compared to fed dogs was 69-91% (n = 3). The exposure of the active metabolite nortriptyline was correlated to amitriptyline exposure (R(2)  =  buy pamelor online 0.84). Due to pharmacokinetic variability and the small number of dogs completing this study, further studies are needed assessing the impact of feeding on oral amitriptyline pharmacokinetics. Amitriptyline may be more likely to cause vomiting in fasted dogs.

Diabetes mellitus is a major health concern that is only expected to become more prevalent over the next few decades. It causes much morbidity and mortality through various macro- and microvascular complications, including diabetic neuropathy. Currently, there is no treatment that directly affects the natural course of diabetic neuropathy except for rigorous glycemic control, a goal that is not always achievable. Despite these therapeutic limitations, the morbidity caused by diabetic neuropathy can be minimized by early and accurate diagnosis. A detailed history and physical examination, along with carefully selected laboratory tests will confirm the presence of diabetic neuropathy while excluding other buy pamelor online etiologies that may require alternative management strategies. Treatment is always tailored to the patient's symptoms. In addition to improved glycemic control, health care providers can provide education, support, and symptomatic relief. There are many pain modulating therapies that are effective in diabetic neuropathy as discussed above. Nortriptyline at low doses is an inexpensive well-tolerated medication that is effective. Gabapentin is an excellent choice when nortriptyline is ineffective or not tolerated. Other anticonvulsants, such as lamotrigine, carbamazepine, oxycarbazepine, and topiramate, may also provide benefit. Judicious use of narcotics is appropriate when other treatment modalities fail. The importance of treating underlying depression cannot be overemphasized. When gait becomes impaired as a result of neuropathy, appropriate prescription of assistive devices will prevent injuries from falls. Ankle-foot orthoses and other orthotic devices may allow patients to remain ambulatory and independent for a longer period. Despite the challenges ahead, the future holds the promise of more effective treatments for diabetes mellitus and its complications.

Eight patients undergoing antidepressant therapy with nortriptyline for 1--4 years were investigated. The period of the investigation was 7 weeks and included a 2-week placebo period, blind for buy pamelor online the patients. Total saliva secretion measurement, the nortriptyline plasma level, and signs and symptoms of depression and side effects were obtained once a week during the study. The results of the investigation were: (1) long-term treatment with nortriptyline is followed by hyposecretion or xerostomia, (2) the reduction of the secretion is reversible, (3) re-establishment of treatment with dosage leading to the same serum level of nortriptyline is immediately followed by a drop in saliva secretion, and (4) the changes in salivary secretion are useful as an indicator of side effects. The practical importance of the investigation is discussed.

The inwardly rectifying K(+) (Kir) channel Kir4.1 is responsible for astroglial K(+) buffering. We examined the effects of nortriptyline, a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA), on Kir4.1 channel currents heterologously expressed in HEK293T cells, using a whole-cell patch-clamp technique. Nortriptyline (3-300 microM) reversibly inhibited Kir4.1 currents in a concentration-dependent manner, whereas it marginally affected neuronal Kir2.1 currents. The inhibition of Kir4.1 channels by nortriptyline depended on the voltage difference from the K(+) equilibrium potential (E(K)), with greater potency Neurontin Recreational Dose at more positive potentials. Blocking kinetics of the drug could be described by first-order kinetics, where dissociation of the drug slowed down and association accelerated as the membrane was depolarized. The dissociation constant (K(d)) of nortriptyline for Kir4.1 inhibition was 28.1 microM at E(K). Other TCAs, such as amitriptyline, desipramine, and imipramine, also inhibited Kir4.1 currents in a similar voltage-dependent fashion. This study shows for the first time that nortriptyline and related TCAs cause a concentration-, voltage-, and time-dependent inhibition of astroglial K(+)-buffering Kir4.1 channels, which might be involved in therapeutic and/or adverse actions of the drugs.

This study evaluated the utility of morning pretreatment systolic orthostatic blood pressure (PSOP) in predicting clinical response to treatment with nortriptyline (N = 11) or electroconvulsive therapy (N = 6) in 17 depressed geriatric inpatients (mean age, 70.4 +/- 5.1). Morning PSOP showed a significant inverse correlation with percent change in Hamilton depression ratings (rho = -0.59, p less than 0.01; r = -0.52, p less than 0.02). In nortriptyline-treated patients (N = 10, excluding one outlier), PSOP was significantly correlated with percent change in Hamilton ratings (rho = -0.55, p less than 0.05); a similar association was also found in the subsample of electroconvulsive therapy-treated patients (N = 6, rho = -0.77, p Suprax Dosage Child less than 0.05). Patients with PSOP less than or equal to 10 mm Hg averaged 83% improvement in Hamilton depression ratings versus 64% improvement in patients with PSOP less than or equal to 10 mm Hg (p less than 0.05). In an age-equated contrast group of 15 inpatients with mixed clinical pictures of depression and cognitive impairment (11 with primary degenerative dementia with depressive features and four with major depressive disorder with cognitive impairment), no relation between PSOP and treatment response (as measured by Hamilton ratings) was found. The current findings extend earlier work in medically healthy, nonsuicidal geriatric depressed outpatients and suggest that PSOP may also be useful in predicting treatment response in older, cognitively intact depressed inpatients (many with concurrent medical illness and/or suicidal) but not in mixed depression-dementia.

Depression is a common disorder that impacts on all aspects of a person's life. For the past 10 years, clinicians have focused on serotonin in their treatment of depression. This is largely due to the growing acceptance of the efficacy and safety of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in comparison with older tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs). However, evidence for a role of noradrenaline in depression has been accumulating for some time, beginning with the discovery that drugs which either caused or alleviated depression acted to alter noradrenaline metabolism. Until recently, the role of noradrenaline in depression was predicted from clinical experience with noradrenergic TCAs (desipramine, nortriptyline and protriptyline) and selective serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (venlafaxine, milnacipran). The licensing of reboxetine, a selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor now allows the role of noradrenaline in depression to be investigated directly. This review presents key data from the literature that support a role for noradrenaline in depression taking into account neurophysiology, psychopharmacology and clinical trial data.

Slices of rat lung were incubated with tritiated 5-hydroxytryptamine and the tissue uptake of tritium was studied after separating the free and bound radioactivity by filtration on glass fiber filters. At 37 degrees a rapid uptake occurred during the first 10 min. After that time the uptake was less marked but it was still present after 60 min. The uptake was moderately potentiated by the MAO inhibitor iproniazid (3 micrometers) after 30-60 min. incubation. The 5-hydroxytryptamine uptake was inhibited by some uptake inhibitors, their order of potency beeing: clomipramine greater than imipramine greater than or equal to nortriptyline greater than or equal to cocaine greater than or equal to desipramine greater than maprotiline. At 0 degrees the uptake of 5-hydroxytryptamine was negligible. Non-linear regression analysis of uptake data indicated that 5-hydroxytryptamine was taken up by two different mechanisms. One of the uptake processes was saturated by high concentrations of 5-hydroxytryptamine and showed an apparent Km of 8 X 10(-7) M. The other uptake was linearly related to the 5-hydroxytryptamine concentration and could not be saturated even by concentration up to 5 X 10(-5) M of the amine.

Molecular imprint polymers (MIPs) are synthetic polymers capable of selectively binding a template molecule. In this work, the potential utility of MIP-based chromatographic sorbents for affinity screening of structurally similar compounds was investigated as alternatives to in vitro bioassays and biological targets bound to chromatographic supports. A group of structurally similar tricyclic antidepressant drugs and related compounds were used to simulate a combinatorial library. One of the antidepressants, nortriptyline (NOR), was selected as the template species. Using capillary HPLC columns packed with NOR-imprinted MIP particles, the simulated library was screened and the degree of selective interaction of each compound was determined. This correlated with each compound's affinity for the NOR binding site in the polymer. The results of the study revealed that library species which possess the major structural features of the template, specifically the ring structure and pendant secondary amine, were best "recognized" by the MIP, while the most structurally dissimilar compounds exhibited the least selective interaction. An investigation of the retention mechanism on these MIPs provided evidence that hydrogen bonding between the pendant amine group on the antidepressants and a methacrylic acid moiety on the polymer surface was critical in the molecular recognition process.

In healthy smokers, antidepressants can double the odds of cessation. Because of its four times lower costs and comparable efficacy in healthy smokers, nortriptyline appears to be favourable compared to bupropion. We assessed which of both drugs was most effective and cost-effective in stopping smoking after 1 year compared with placebo among smokers at risk or with existing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Tobacco smoking is the leading cause of preventable morbidity and mortality in the world. There are nearly 1, 3 billion users of nicotine and tobacco products worldwide while approximately 4, 9 millions of them die from smoking-related disease every year. Cigarette smoking is a highly addictive behavior. Pharmacotherapy can be useful to achieve long-term abstinence. Nicotine replacement products are widely employed and recommended by the World Health Organization. There is strong evidence for the efficacy of the atypical antidepressant Bupropion as therapy for smoking cessation. The partial nicotinic receptor agonist varenicline has recently been approved as treatment for nicotine addiction in Germany. Preliminary data from clinical trials have suggested that varenicline may be an effective therapy for tobacco dependence with minimal side effects. Clonidine and nortriptyline have demonstrated some efficacy but possible side effects may limit their use. Additionally both are not approved for smoking cessation in Germany. Other promising new therapeutic drugs include Rimonabant and nicotine vaccines. They will provide smokers additional options to assist in achieving smoking cessation. Treatment of psychological dependence in addition to physiological dependence, however, is a must for long-term abstinence. For this reason a successful smoking cessation intervention requires besides pharmacological treatments motivational counseling and behavioral interventions.
