Fluoxetine differentially alters alcohol intake and other consummatory behaviors in problem drinkers
TLDR
The findings with men who are problem drinkers indicate that fluoxetine differentially alters consummatory behaviors, and the reductions in alcohol intake and body weight are of clinical importance. Expand
The serotonin uptake inhibitor citalopram attenuates ethanol intake
TLDR
Citalopram, a selective serotonin uptake inhibitor, decreased the number of drinks consumed and increased the numbers of abstinent days in male nondepressed early‐stage problem drinkers and is probably through modulation of the neurobiologic mechanisms regulating ethanol intake. Expand
Differential effects of viqualine on alcohol intake and other consummatory behaviors
TLDR
It is indicated that viqualine both attenuates ethanol intake and reduces body weight in human beings. Expand
Do serotonin uptake inhibitors decrease smoking? Observations in a group of heavy drinkers.
TLDR
Zimelidine and citalopram effects on ethanol intake and smoking behavior were evaluated to exclude with 99.99% confidence the possibility that these drugs decrease smoking behavior by 50%. Expand
Enalapril effects on alcohol intake and other consummatory behaviors in alcoholics
TLDR
It is indicated that enalapril does not alter alcohol intake in normotensive alcoholics with normal plasma renin activity and studies with higher doses of enAlapril in humans may be limited by increased frequency and severity of side effects. Expand
Ethanol interactions with serotonin uptake selective and non‐selective antidepressants: Fluoxetine and amitriptyline
TLDR
Ethanol dose does not interact importantly with clinically relevant doses of fluoxetine or low doses of amitriptyline administered chronically, and the deleterious effects of ethanol on memory, manual tracking, body sway, intoxication and sedation were not modified. Expand
Limitations in the measurement of urine ethanol in clinical trials to monitor ethanol consumption.
TLDR
Self-report of daily alcohol consumption has been used as the dependent variable in clinical trials to assess the effects of two serotonin uptake inhibitory drugs, zimelidine and citalopram and the ability of urine ethanol concentration to validate objectively diaries of alcohol consumption is limited. Expand
Possible pharmacological probes for predicting and preventing relapse in treated alcoholics.
TLDR
In studies with moderately dependent alcoholics, 5-HT uptake inhibitors reduced both the craving for and the consumption of alcohol, and studies are underway to identify the mechanism underlying these findings. Expand
Kinetic and dynamic interactions of oral viqualine and ethanol in man
TLDR
The deleterious effects of ethanol on word recall, manual tracking, body sway, and self-ratings of intoxication, sedation, and performance were not modified by the presence of viqualine. Expand
