Although selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are widely used to treat depression, they frequently cause gastrointestinal adverse effects, such as nausea and emesis. In the present study, we investigated the anti-emetic effect of mosapride, a 5-HT(4) receptor agonist, on SSRIs-induced emesis in Suncus murinus and dogs. We also examined the effect of mosapride on SSRIs-induced delay in gastric emptying and increase in gastric vagal afferent activity in rats. Oral administration of… CONTINUE READING
