Chlormethiazole anticonvulsive efficacy diminished by N-methyl-D-aspartate but not kainate in mice.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and kainate used at nonconvulsive doses upon protective efficacy of chlormethiazole against maximal electroshock-induced seizures. NMDA (50 mg/kg, i.p.) reduced the anticonvulsant potency of chlormethiazole increasing its ED50 value from 126.9 to 155.0 mg/kg. The effect of NMDA… CONTINUE READING
