A serotonin (5-HT)1A receptor partial agonist, buspirone, potentiates the clinical antidepressant properties of 5-HT reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Herein, we examined the interaction of buspirone with two SSRIs, duloxetine and fluoxetine, on extracellular levels of 5-HT, dopamine (DA), and noradrenaline (NAD) in single dialysate samples of freely moving rats. Duloxetine (5.0 mg/kg. s.c.) and fluoxetine (10.0 mg/kg, s.c.) increased dialysate levels of DA (65 and 60% vs. basal values, respectively… CONTINUE READING
