The antinociceptive effect of three antidepressants with different postulated modes of action, 75 mg desipramine, 225 mg fluvoxamine, and 450 mg moclobemide, was evaluated after single oral dosing in a randomized, double‐blind, placebo‐controlled crossover study in 10 healthy volunteers. Experimental pain thresholds (polysynaptic R‐III reflex and subjective pain rating) were monitored over 23 hours. Compared with placebo, all drugs induced significant subjective pain threshold increases… Expand
Contribution of monoaminergic modulation to the analgesic effect of tramadol.
1. In humans, the central analgesic effect of tramadol 100 mg orally is only partially reversed by the opioid antagonist naloxone (0.8 mg intravenously). As suggested by in vitro and animal dataExpand
Analgesic Effect of Antidepressant Drugs
TLDR
The obtained results indicate disparate sensitivity to antidepressant treatment of differently evoked behavioral reactions to the nociceptive stimuli; the most potent effects of administered antidepressants in the model of visceral pain; a better correlation of the brain concentration of imipramine with its antiimmobility than analgesic effect; and the lack of relationship between the analgesic and antidepressant-like effects of examined antidepressants compounds. Expand
The analgesic effect of codeine as compared to imipramine in different human experimental pain models
TLDR
It is concluded that both imipramine and codeine inhibit temporal pain summation, whereas only codeine reduces cold pressor pain, which is in line with the clinical observations indicating that opioids relieve neuropathic pain. Expand
Antinociceptive efficacy of antidepressants: assessment of five antidepressants and four monoamine receptors in rats
TLDR
It is likely that central α1 adrenoceptors and 5-HT2 receptors are predominantly involved in imipramine- and desipramines-induced antinociception, and classical TCAs are likely to have a therapeutic advantage over SSRIs for pain control. Expand
Possible involvement of opioidergic and serotonergic mechanisms in antinociceptive effect of paroxetine in acute pain.
TLDR
Paroxetine-induced antinociception, similar to morphine, suggests an involvement of direct or indirect action (via an increase in release of endogenous opioid peptide(s) at opioid receptor sites and an involved of serotonergic mechanisms mainly at the receptor level. Expand
Effect of single-dose imipramine on chronic low-back and experimental pain. A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The present study failed to demonstrate an immediate analgesic effect of imipramine on low-back pain, suggesting that anti-nociceptive effects as assessed by quantitative sensory tests may depend on CYP2D6 genotype, indicating that metabolizer status should be accounted for when future studies with tricyclic antidepressants are undertaken. Expand
Steady-state pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of CHF3381, a novel antineuropathic pain agent, in healthy subjects.
TLDR
A twice daily regimen of CHF3381 appears to be adequate from a pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic perspective and there were no significant effects of CHf3381 on attention, motor co-ordination or memory at any of the doses. Expand
The Pharmacology of Tramadol
TLDR
Experimental and clinical data suggest that tramadol may also exert its analgesic effect through direct modulation of central monoaminergic pathways, and this metabolite shows a higher affinity for opioid receptors than the parent drug. Expand
Effect of gender on antinociceptive effect of paroxetine in hot plate test in mice
TLDR
The results do not show any gender difference in antinociceptive effect of paroxetine that may be important especially when it would be used as an adjuvant agent in some painful conditions. Expand
2c The antidepressant-induced analgesic effect
TLDR
The meta-analysis summarized the results of the available double-blind, placebo-controlled trials for several chronic pain syndromes up to 1990 and found support for an independent biochemical mechanism but not for the crucial role of serotonin reuptake inhibition. Expand

Effect of citalopram, amineptine, imipramine and nortriptyline on stress-induced (footshock) analgesia in rats
TLDR
The results support the suggested importance of 5‐HT and noradrenaline terminals, but not those of dopamine, in the mediation of the stress‐induced analgesia and seem to support the hypothesis that the analgesic activity of antidepressants is partially related to their modulating effects on the endogenously released opioid peptides involved in the endogenous pain inhibitory systems. Expand
Central analgesic effect of acetaminophen but not of aspirin
TLDR
Findings show that acetaminophen‐induced analgesia is centrally mediated, in contrast to aspirin, and the time delay between plasma concentration kinetics and acetaminphen analgesic effect is another argument in favor of its direct action on the central nervous system. Expand
Objective assessment of clonidine analgesia in man and influence of naloxone.
TLDR
Oral clonidine alone or with naloxone increased subjective and objective pain thresholds for at least 4 hours and tended to reinforceClonidine analgesia, and possible links with the opioid peptide system by means of n aloxone antagonism were investigated. Expand
Imipramine reduces experimental pain
TLDR
In a homogeneous sample of 20 healthy male students, the analgesic effects of the tricyclic antidepressant imipramine and fluradoline were compared and the decrease in pain ratings was accompanied by decreased amplitudes of the late components of the SSEP, as well as by a reduction in alpha activity and an enhancement of slow EEG waves. Expand
Analgesic activity of tricyclic antidepressants
TLDR
The actions of amitriptyline were not affected by the specific opiate antagonist naloxone but were markedly attenuated in animals whose monoamine levels had been depleted with reserpine, and central mechanisms appear important since amitripyline was potent when administered intracerebroventricularly. Expand
Inhibition of monoamine oxidase by moclobemide: effects on monoamine metabolism and secretion of anterior pituitary hormones and cortisol in healthy volunteers.
TLDR
It is suggested that DHPG in plasma may be a useful indicator of the magnitude and duration of MAO-A inhibition in man. Expand
Fluvoxamine. A review of its pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties, and therapeutic efficacy in depressive illness.
TLDR
In patients with depressive illness, fluvoxamine offers a suitable alternative to tricyclic antidepressants and may be especially valuable in patients with concomitant cardiovascular disease, and those unresponsive to or unable to tolerate tricyClic antidepressants. Expand
Desipramine relieves postherpetic neuralgia.
TLDR
It is concluded that desipramine administration relieves postherpetic neuralgia and that pain relief is not mediated by mood elevation, and blockade of norepinephrine reuptake, an action shared by desIPramine, amitriptyline, and other antidepressant agents that have relieved neuropathic pain, may be involved in relief of postherPetic Neuralgia.

Efficacy of desipramine in painful diabetic neuropathy: a placebo-controlled trial
TLDR
Desipramine relieves pain in many patients with painful diabetic neuropathy, offering an alternative for patients unable to tolerate amitriptyline, and blockade of norepinephrine reuptake may mediate this analgesic effect. Expand
Clomipramine vs desipramine vs placebo in the treatment of diabetic neuropathy symptoms. A double-blind cross-over study.
TLDR
Compared with earlier results obtained with imipramine dosed on the basis of plasma level monitoring, clomipramines on fixed doses appeared less efficacious whereas the side effect profiles were the same. Expand
