Serotonin 2C receptors are G protein-coupled receptors expressed by GABAergic, glutamatergic, and dopaminergic neurons. Anatomically, they are present in various brain regions, including cortical areas, hippocampus, ventral midbrain, striatum, nucleus accumbens, hypothalamus, and amygdala. A large body of evidence supports a critical role of serotonin 2C(More)
Hyperalgesia and allodynia in 4 cancer patients treated with morphine disappeared after discontinuing or substituting morphine with other opioid agonists. The first case describes a young female who developed hyperalgesia and myoclonus during intravenous morphine infusion. The hyperalgesia and myoclonus disappeared when the morphine administration was(More)
RATIONALE Although the antidepressant and anxiolytic effects of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and serotonin-noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors are well-documented, less is known about their cognitive effects. OBJECTIVE Escitalopram, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, and atomoxetine, a selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor, were used(More)

The side effects are most common in cancer patients treated with high dose morphine, and has been reported for all routes of administration. The mechanisms are unknown, but human cases and(More)
The aim of this study was to correlate pupillary diameter with respiratory depression for 20 hr after epidural administration of morphine or buprenorphine. Pupillary diameter and the ventilatory sensitivity to CO2 were measured in six healthy volunteers at various times (0, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 20 hr) in two sessions, separated by at least 1(More)
