It is considered that increasing intracellular concentration is a component of the antidepressant mechanism of sertraline and amytriptiline and maybe of other antidepressants, and a magnesium-induced stimulation of the RS is an important issue for treating anhedonia in patients with MD. Expand
Interactions between magnesium and psychotropic drugs.
The existent data sustain the idea that an increase of erythrocyte magnesium is involved in the mechanism of action of some psychotropic drugs. Expand
Magnesium influence on morphine--induced pharmacodependence in rats.
Data obtained show that MgAc significantly decreases symptoms from withdrawal syndrome, which is similar to that seen in Mg2+ influence on experimental morphine-induced pharmacodependence in rats. Expand
Magnesium involvement in pain.
The very interesting paper of Pickering et al. raises the issue of the involvement of this cation in different types of pain. Expand
Behavioral involvement of imidazoline system.
