PURPOSE To compare the effects of the antidepressant drugs duloxetine and fluoxetine on depressive behaviors in rodents. METHODS Eighteen male Wistar rats were given systemic injections of duloxetine, fluoxetine, or saline prior to a Forced Swimming Test (FST). Immobility and number of stops were measured. RESULTS Rats given injections of fluoxetine displayed significantly less immobility (p = 0.02) and fewer stops than the control group (p = 0.003). Duloxetine significantly reduced the… Expand
Learning and memory in the forced swimming test: effects of antidepressants having varying degrees of anticholinergic activity
TLDR
It is demonstrated that when given before the pretest antidepressants with or without anticholinergic activity seemed to be devoid of impairing the learning process in the test. Expand
HYPEREXCITATION FROM FLUOXETINE USE IN RODENTS
TLDR
Results suggest that Fluoxetine can lead to hyper excitat ion in behavior and produce anxiety and therefore strongly implies that Fluxetine use may also require an anxiolytic drug to antagonize this hyper excitability. Expand
Augmentation of antidepressant effects of duloxetine and bupropion by caffeine in mice
TLDR
Caffeine plus duloxetine treated group was better among the combination treated groups in terms of decrease in immobility and increase in norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin levels in hippocampi, cerebral cortices, and whole brain when compared to their respective monotherapy treated groups. Expand
The Combination of Antidepressant Duloxetine with Piracetam in Mice does not Produce Enhancement of Nootropic Activity
TLDR
Results indicate no cognitive benefits with piracetam plus duloxetine combination, but there was exception of significant increase in norepinephrine levels in hippocampi when compared against dulOxetine treated group. Expand
Effects of Magnesium Oxide on the Serum Duloxetine Concentration and Antidepressant-Like Effects of Duloxetine in Rats.
TLDR
It is suggested that duloxetine and magnesium oxide directly interact and that such interactions affect the absorption and antidepressant-like effects of dulxetine. Expand
Role of serotonergic and dopaminergic neurotransmission in the antidepressant effects of malt extract
TLDR
Treatment with malt extract reversed clonidine-induced behavioral and neurochemical changes and were partly antagonized in groups pre-treated with spiperone or sulpiride. Expand
Duloxetine prevents the effects of prenatal stress on depressive-like and anxiety-like behavior and hippocampal expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines in adult male offspring rats

TLDR
It is demonstrated that prenatal stress‐induced anxiety‐ and depression‐like behaviors are associated with an increase in hippocampal inflammatory mediators, and duloxetine administration prevents the increased hippocampal pro‐inflammatory cytokine interleukin‐6 and anxiety- and depression-like behavior in prenatally stressed adult offspring. Expand
The role of the NMDA receptors and l-arginine–nitric oxide–cyclic guanosine monophosphate pathway in the antidepressant-like effect of duloxetine in the forced swimming test
TLDR
The results suggest that the effect of duloxetine in the FST is dependent on either a blockade of NMDA receptors or an inhibition of NO, and further reinforce the role ofNMDA receptors and l-arginine-NO-cGMP pathway in the mechanism of action of current prescribed antidepressant agents. Expand
The antidepressant- and anxiolytic-like effects of fluoxetine and clozapine in chronically isolated rats involve inhibition of hippocampal TNF-α
TLDR
The significance of hippocampal TNF‐&agr;‐mediated proinflammmatory signaling in the pathophysiology of depressive symptoms and the importance of the anti‐inflammatory action of both FLX and CLZ in the prevention of these symptoms are emphasized. Expand
EVALUATION OF THE EFFICACY OF COMBINATION THERAPY OF DULOXETINE AND LAMOTRIGINE IN THE TREATMENT OF BIPOLAR DEPRESSION
Objective: To evaluate the therapeutic effects of lamotrigine, an antiepileptic mood stabilizer, when used alone and in combination with duloxetine (SNRI) in treating bipolar depression, at differentExpand

TLDR
Results obtained with the technique demonstrate that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are not false negatives in the rat forced swimming test, as previously thought. Expand
Antidepressant behavioral effects by dual inhibition of monoamine reuptake in the rat forced swimming test
TLDR
Combining certain doses of pharmacologically selective monoamine reuptake inhibitors, or the mixed reptake inhibitor venlafaxine, produced a pattern of mixed active behaviors in the FST that may reflect the activity of multiple neurotransmitters, especially the combination of enhanced 5-HT and DA activity.

TLDR
Positive findings with atypical antidepressant drugs such as iprindole and mianserin suggest that the method may be capable of discovering new antidepressants hitherto undetectable with classical pharmacological tests. Expand

TLDR
Evidence is extended that duloxetine inhibits serotonin and norepinephrine transporters in vivo, actions that may lead to therapeutic efficacy in mental depression. Expand
Efficacy of Duloxetine, a Potent and Balanced Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor in Persistent Pain Models in Rats
TLDR
Duloxetine significantly attenuated late phase paw-licking behavior in a dose-dependent manner in the formalin model of persistent pain and was more potent than venlafaxine, milnacipran, and amitriptyline in this paradigm and was minimally efficacious in the tail-flick model of acute nociceptive pain.

Depression: a new animal model sensitive to antidepressant treatments
TLDR
Results presented below indicate that immobility is reduced by different treatments known to be therapeutic in depression including three drugs, iprindole, mianserin and viloxazine which although clinically active show little or no ‘antidepressant’ activity in the usual animal tests. Expand

TLDR
Comparison data is provided on the relative effectiveness of NK1, NK2, and NK3 receptor antagonists in this screen for antidepressant drug activity on the basis of time of immobility during the forced swim test. Expand
