Disposition and biotransformation of the new antipsychotic agent olanzapine (OLZ) were studied in six male healthy volunteers after a single oral dose of 12.5 mg containing 100 microCi of [14C]OLZ. Biological fluids were analyzed for total radioactivity, the parent compound (GC/MS), and metabolites (electrospray LC/MS and LC/MS/MS). Mean radiocarbon(More)
Fluoxetine (30 mg), administered for 7 days to normal volunteers, produced a 66% inhibition of tritiated serotonin uptake into platelets. Plasma concentrations of fluoxetine correlated positively with inhibition of serotonin uptake. Fluoxetine is well absorbed after oral administration in both the fed and fasted states and demonstrates dose proportionality.(More)
Clinical reports of concurrent use of fluoxetine and tricyclic antidepressant agents suggest that tricyclic concentrations increase upon coadministration with fluoxetine. This study was conducted to confirm the clinical reports, to quantify the degree of change in tricyclic kinetics, and to establish the mechanism of interaction. Twelve male subjects were(More)
Experiments investigating the possible interaction of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), two major components of marihuana, were conducted under controlled laboratory conditions in a double-blind manner. In one study, 15 male volunteers were given placebo or 25 mug/kg of THC together with either placebo or 150 mug/kg of CBD by inhalation of(More)
A pharmacokinetic profile of tomoxetine, a selective norepinephrine uptake inhibitor, was developed in human volunteers following single and multiple oral administrations. Following the administration of a single 90-mg oral dose of tomoxetine to four normal volunteers, the plasma half-life was 4.3 +/- 0.5 hours. Mean plasma clearance was 0.60 +/- 0.14(More)
The effect of decreased renal function on the disposition and elimination of the nontricyclic antidepressant fluoxetine was examined in 25 adult male subjects after a single 40-mg oral dose. Blood samples for the measurement of fluoxetine and its active metabolite norfluoxetine were drawn 13 times in the first 48 hr after dosing and thrice weekly thereafter(More)
A comparison of the psychologic and physiologic effects of intravenously administered Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta(9)-THC) and 11-hydroxy-Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (11-OH-Delta(9)-THC) was carried out in nine casual marihuana smokers. A marked tachycardia and psychologic "high" occurred within 3-5 min after the i.v. administration of(More)
