  • The dose-response effects of administration of 8-cyclopentyltheophylline (CPT) (10, 20, and 40 mg/kg intraperitoneally [IP]) and alloxazine (ALX) (12.5, 25, and 50 mg/kg, IP) on sleep and wakefulness in rats were examined and compared to those of caffeine (12.5 mg/kg IP). Both CPT and ALX injected individually produced sleep suppression qualitatively similar to that produced by caffeine, but of a lower magnitude. However, when 20 mg/kg CPT and 50 mg/kg ALX were injected together, their sleep… CONTINUE READING
